This is one sick twisted game. It's a noir adventure game, something that is pretty innovative I think-- At least I haven't played anything quite like this before. It is an interesting blend of genres and themes that makes for a novel and stimulating gaming experience that doesn't feel played out.

It really pushes the envelope with some twisted, demented scenes that are hard to not enjoy, and become immersed in... even if you aren't really a fan of adventure games, if you want something creepy, thrilling, and with good writing and immersion: then I think you will like this game.

The writing is amazing in my opinion... and voice acting is extremely solid for the most part -- it has some of the deepest, trippiest, creepiest stuff going on I have seen in a game. The noir art style works, even though the graphics are simple it just somehow fits well with the tone of the game. The truth is, all the pieces of the puzzle just work together perfectly to create an enjoyable experience.

It takes really good writing and solid acting to be able to create an immersive atmosphere in a simple side scrolling adventure game, but this game delivers and then some. I'll admit, the story gets a little ridiculous and/or confusing at moments but that is part of the atmopshere.

As far as the actual puzzle solving goes, its a pretty simple game. Theres really more of a focus on the story and just creating an eerie atmosphere then there is on solving puzzles... but there is some thinking to be done-- just the right amount for the tone of the game in my opinion.

A rare creation, a unique study on human behavior that exposes instincts, fears, desires that most of us would not even care to admit to ourselves ;)

This is a masterpiece.
I have depression and have attempted suicide twice since losing someone loved. When I played The Cat Lady, it was expected to be an experience to make me a better horror writer, but it was far deeper in the end.

This is a game focused on its storytelling. Susan Ashworth is a deep and troubled character, and Mitzi is a character that brings life to the whole setting. It was an unforgettable trip through not only the struggle for life (or death?) but also of how deeply someone full of life can make you change your view about the world. It is a game about redemption and starting a new life, about facing the ghosts of the past and managing to let the sadness go and let the sun shine in your face once again.

One of the best audiovisual experiences I've ever had, under one of my favorite soundtracks ever. Easily one of my favorite games ever played. Thanks, Harvester Games. Thank you very much.

The cat lady is a point and click adventure game, but describing it only so would be an understatement. The puzzles are easy and solving them mainly gives way to an emotionally invested story. You are Susan Ashworth, - the cat lady- and you have just done what you wanted to do for a long time: committed suicide. You soon realize though that this is not the end, as you get sent back to life with the mission to kill some so called "human parasites". People who have done even more unthinkable things than yourself. Be prepared, this is indeed a horror game with a few disturbing scenes that mainly uses its bleak atmosphere and despair as its tools instead of jump scares.

Pain, depression, fear, hope, love, are twisted in a dream-like fashion in the form of a game. Its charm lies In that essentially, it embodies everything that makes us human. If you are drawn to things that will stir you up inside, this game is for you. The story of the Cat Lady will haunt your mind long after you have finished playing it.

This game is amazing. The story is superb and this could've easily been an A rated horror movie. There's a touch of the "Silent Hill" type of horror in this game, with surreal alterworlds that question your character's sanity. Just the right amount of "scare surprise" and gore to keep you on your toes. The interface of making decisions is much like real life, in that there is no one "right" answer, but there is a "better" one. Also this game will test your memory; it is very important to pay close attention to EVERYTHING that is said.

I got this on a Humble Bundle deal for a few bucks, and believe me, its worth it.

Loved it! At times a bit slow maybe, specially at the start. But...

1. Awesome atmosphere
2. Interesting storyline
3. Sick and gruwesome
4. Did I mention sick?
5. Great voiceovers
6. In depth characters
7. Did i mention sick?
8. Low budget , but made in a way that it is just very artistic. Really well done.

Felt more like an interactive story for most parts as a game. ( like a story told with a picture book, not a movie.) But the game part was pretty decent too. Some nice puzzles. Not too easy, not too hard. Finished the game in one breath.

9/10

I don't know why I gravitate towards games that deal with mental disorders, particularly depression and anxiety, but The Cat Lady is one that captivated me from the start. The game starts out with you committing suicide and ending up in what I can best describe as a purgatory of sorts. In order to save your soul you're tasked with taking those of deranged and depraved lunatics in trade. Each and every chapter is somber and more than just a little depressing. For anyone who knows what it's like to suffer such things it really hits the mark. The endings (for there are about three or so of them) really make an impact when you take the game as a whole into account. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to play a dark and somewhat twisted game. Just a word of warning, though. Don't play if you're already feeling down.

The Cat Lady is a dark adventure game with lots of dialogues, original art style and mature plot. The controls are a little clunky but overall its very good game which tells very interesting story.

I wasn't sure what to expect before i started the game. Some indie developed games tend to feel cheap and vacant. Not this one!

The Cat Lady is a very well made game. What struck me was the strong direction of gameplay/story and the superb soundtrack. It's a point n click game that feels more like an action game. It could have been longer, but to be honest, the pace of the game is perfect as it is. With different endings and choices throughout the gameplay, i will more than likely give it another playthrough in the future.

If you are on the fence about getting this, i would recommend it. If you like a thought provoking story with immersive atmosphere and a sense of danger, this is the game for you.

Everyone needs to buy this. Pretty much the best story I have ever experienced in a game, not just for an indie game either. Very mature and dark with a few surprises to grab your attention.

Wow. I'm not sure where to begin on this one. The Cat Lady was a beautiful and eerie journey of a woman trying to make ammends with her life.
The story begins with 40-something Susan Ashwood ending her life with a handful of pills, only to wind up in a strange place where she meets an old lady who gives her a choice- wander lost and confused in limbo forever or help to eliminate five "parasites" in her life. However, she has also been gifted/cursed with immortality, which is essentailly the dead opposite of what a truely suicidal person wants.
The story itself is quite beautiful, as Susan slowly heals and builds relationships for the first time in years, as well as directly confronting the issues which drew herself into her depression in the first place. We watch her grow as a person and develop, right until the moment where she realizes that the Queen of Maggots from the first chapter is an embodiment of her own depression. The other people she encounters are fully fleshed with fascinating backstories. Susan herself is fairly likable- being reclusive and yet very clever. Her allies are sympathetic and yet very strong, her eventual roommate in particular. The Queen of Maggots is enigmatic and unnverving. Each of the parasites sends shivers down your spine. When I encountered the first parasite, I knew something was off about him right away, and talking to him made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
As for the artistic style, it takes a while to get used to the flow of the graphics, but it fits the style of the game well. The blend of more realistic graphics with the pixelation of other elements is unusual but lovely and eerie. The music is light enough where it isn't distracting but instead adds to the atmosphere. At first I didn't like the voice acting, but it quickly grew on me.
All in all, The Cat Lady is a beautiful and eerie game and a lovely artistic experience. I highly recommend it.

This game is pretty much a scary gem in itself. When I first saw it, I debated buying it for awhile (until it went on discount that is) since I assumed there would be lots of cats in the game. There are kitties thankfully, but the real focus is on the CAT LADY you play as. Cats, cats, cats.


Graphics are a bit grainy but this is fine since it reminds me of older detective style games on computers, but with killers being killed instead. The cutscenes looked great and some the backgrounds and background things were creepy good. Really nice to see small details make things a lot better. Funny how the walls outside of every Flat though are seemingly decaying and yet no one has ever bothered to paint and fix it up.

The audio vaired for me. Susan's voice fell flat most of the time but that's alright since she's getting over having just killed herself and depression as well. Then some of the other voice actors either had popping sounds with their microphone setups or there was static hanging in the background as they spoke their lines. Seeing David Firth of Salad Fingers fame do voices in this game was also pretty cool.

The dialogue was kind of all over the place. A lot of misspelling of words (intentional or not) and it sometimes overlapped with audio. I noticed with the Nurse that sometimes her lines would repeat when the subtitles changed to the next set of subtitles. I also noticed (either due to how often I saved or just the game itself) that from Chapter 4 onwards that the subtitles stopped appearing EVEN WHEN the subtitles are turned on.

The music was nice, ranging from ambient to grunge rock. Sad to see the soundtrack is not available for purchase on Steam, although it can be purchased from the main site.

The story itself was very well written and the twists and turns were nice. Although the plot with Joe and his wife is not mentioned after showing them in a hidden room... Just listening to the story each character has to tell makes the game a lot of just standing around listening though.

8.5/10

Basicly one of the best computer games I have ever played, if not the best one. Absolutely fantastic voice acting, fabulous dialogue writing, great plot, astonishing scenery which at the same time is seriously morbid - this game contains the most insane and disturbing scenes I have ever seen in games. Sure, you can find a lot of blood and gore in games, but in The Cat Lady theese scenes have something more to them, something that makes them more thrilling, than some random blood and guts on the screen.
There are some minor flaws, like in every adventure game there are some puzzles that seem not very logical and few scenes that are not very convincing (like inside Pauline's flat when three persons spend far too much time deciding who's gonna open the door and who goes to bathroom with Mitzi), but theese things are not game braking in any way, just somewhat annoying. The last flaw that needs mentioning is animation of the characters (especially Susan and Mitzi). While the whole graphics beeing raw and ugly makes it at the same time very in place and atmosphere amplifying, animation of characters is very shaky and causes eye fatigue.
Nevertheless I highly recommend playing The Cat Lady for all those who are bored with naive and trivial game stories which we face in great majority of other games and seek something more convincing and interesting. You won't regret it.
