I must preface this review with a note, this game was not quite what I thought it would be. A friend of mine gifted the game to me as I had wishlisted it based on a recommendation (and the name got me)

Now, on to the review.

The Cat Lady is a dark and suspenseful ride down the river of depression. As someone who has experienced depression intimately, it was quite the surreal experience. The art and interface was a surprise, but I got past it due to such an amazing and thoughtful story. I managed to play the game blindly and beat the game in about 8 hours. I did not end up getting the "perfect" ending, and for that I would need to play through the game again. The funny thing is, I really don't mind playing the whole thing over again.

The game has a lot of dark overtones, course language, and gore. It deals with a lot of serious subject matter such as death, suicide, murder, and the loss of loved ones. If you can handle all that, I cannot recommend the game enough. It is a wonderful macabre tale of sorrow and suspense that must be experineced.

I honestly really thought I was going to like this game. It was captivating from the start, I could not stop playing. I will say about half of the storyline was EXCELLENT and it really did the whole grotesque thing well.
And now my complaints. The graphics were crap, honestly, but that wasn't a big problem at all for me. But the save system is soo bad. A whole lot of the game is cutscenes (which isn't too bad because the whole game is basically a movie) but you can't save within them, and they last FOREVER. Also, since most of the game is just you walking to different rooms, you quickly pick up on how incredibly slowly your person moves. It makes gameplay generally boring.
When I first started playing I fell in love with the story. It seemed like the creator had a great idea. The first few chapters were so disturbing - it was just awesome. I thought, "Maybe this storyline will save this game for me." and it did, for a while.
Then, nearing the end of the game, I don't even really know what happened. The ending was just so unexpected, and not in the good way. There were so many loose ends. Honestly, it's as if the creators started to get bored with it and eventually just said, "Well, better wrap this up."
This game seemed very clever at first and ended in disappointment. It really just left me hanging. I can't recommend it, as much as I'd like to.

Rarely am i so captivated by a game i simply can not stop playing it .
I have never played a horror game quite like it .looking forward to
getting the next title :D

what i was expecting to be a quick indie playthrough turned out to
be a journey like none other i have ever played .A Riviting Story
draws you in deeper and deeper every chapter .like walking into the
Twilight Zone you feel connected as the game twist your thoughts
all the way to your soul .

at first i found the game unusual and thought this would be another
try and forget .the deeper i dug the deeper its grasp on me it had .
It's Dark and Complex with mind provoking puzzles keep you wanting
to know what next until the very end . the choices matter gameplay is
not normaly my genre but this game is surely the top of its class .

Music Score : 9/10 a most awesome sound track . i found a couple tracks
did not really fit the scene ,but all in all perfectly flowed with the game .

Story Line : 9/10 all i can say is WOW

Graphics : 9/10 the art and game style was fasinating , only issues
where in optimization of the game . that could use some improvement

Originality: 10/10 It was a Pleasure to had the opportunity to play this title .

A game about depression and suicide.
Made me feel like trash, and then, somehow, made me feel better.
I kept thinking about that game all the time until I finished it, and I will probably keep thinking about it for a while.
The horror aspects of the game aren't a big part of the game, its themes are truly its strength.

I remember reading about this game and it had just happened to be on sale at the time i believe. Even though i dont rely on personal / critic reviews, they sometimes help give me that extra nudge to buy. Well.... now from personal experience i can tell everyone thats reading this that i could not have been happier!!! I absolutely fell in love with this game from the very start, to the credits. The story was one of the most unique experiences ive had in a while with a game "but in a really good way" I highly recommend this game!
Story - 10/10

Music - 10/10 "my personal favorite part of the game"

Gameplay - 9/10 "let me say one thing. if you dont care about amazing graphics, nor care about side scrollers, then you
will be satisfied!! Personally i love Harvester's artwork in this game. Another unique part of this game"

Characters - 10/10 "You really end up connecting with the characters in the game which of course makes games so much more interesting"

Game Length - Not gonna rate this but i do wish the game wouldve been longer. Not that this a ridiculously SHORT game, i just wish there wouldve been a few more episodes at least... but oh well. I still stand by my point that this game was very very well worth buying. I think its normal price is $10 and knowing what i know now about this game id have payed that amount for it for sure.

Replay Value - Obviously none since its a pure story driven / psychological horror game and once you've beaten the game theres no point to play it again, unless its for the achievements which is what i did to 100% it.

Overall - Great game. Highly recommend everyone to experience this "imo" masterpiece of a game.
Also forgot to mention this game will make you use your brain as well, almost exactly like Silent Hill soooo, why wouldnt you buy it right this second after topping my review off with that!!! I hope this review was helpful to everyone who reads it and if you decide to buy this game I hope you have fun playing!

To tell the truth I despise adventure games. The last one taking more than 15 minutes worth of my attention was probably the Day of the Tentacle way back in nineties. I don't recall now why I bothered to even run this one, maybe cuz it's been a part of some sort of Haloween bundle or some other horror related. And there you go, once you're into the story, it really sucks you in: rich characters, the sweetest feeling of revenge on some occasions, the feeling of despair and compassion on others. This game truly shines in delivering strong emotions so it definitely gets its place in the golden pantheon of my favorite games.

It's hard to put The Cat Lady into words.

The Cat Lady is a story-driven tale about a woman named Susan who feels that nothing in life matters. The only friends she has are cats. Susan feels that she is worthless, and so she determines to commit suicide through a pill overdose.

Simply put, The Cat Lady is an emotional roller coaster. The story deals with the darkest reaches of the human psyche and approaches them in a grotesque and artistic manner.

The game is dialogue and story heavy. So get your beverage of choice ready while you follow along with the story.

The gameplay itself is quite simplistic - you don't even use a mouse. You simply use the arrow keys or the "wasd" keys to move around and Enter to select. You can use space bar to speed up dialogue (some of the dialogue in this game can take a while to get through but it's well done and worth following).

Overall, The Cat Lady is a truly unique experience. Don't be fooled by the simple interface and graphics - The Cat Lady is a powerful, impactful, and mind rending experience.

The Cat Lady takes about 8 hours to complete.

9.5/10

If you are on the fence about buying this game, buy it. If you're already leaning toward it to be on the fence, you'll like it.

I started playing this game because I was diagnosed depressed, anxious, and looking for a distraction. I stopped because other things came up and thought to play it again and finish it when my feelings got down again. It's a really artsy game, and depending on the choices you make it's a very artful take on depression and fighting it. For that reason, I can really apprecaite the game. You aren't alone when you feel like the world isn't real, and you shouldn't be either.

Style:Artsy/Surreal/(It reminded me of courage the cowardly dog.)/pixelated a bit but worth it

Gameplay: Point and Click with lots of choices, make sure to save a lot

Story: Save a lot if you want to explore choices.The story is the main point, there is more story than action, but the surreal horror, or better put CREEPY-ness of the game makes up for that. Voice acting is captivating, and the soundtrack really adds to the game immensely!

Would reccomend to anyone who isn't annoyed by point and click, and who can stomach a horror genre storyline and some seriously creepy twists/gameplay.

On a gameplay/storyline/interface: Pixelated, lag in fog scenes but worth it if you are comfortable with point and click, and the voice acting is really entertaining and wonderful. Save a lot if you want to explore the choices. The saving method is the only thing that upset me because I couldnt figure out how to overwrite (don't think you can) and therefore it got cluttered really fast.

SPOILER FREE REVIEW

Introduction
An Indie horror game done right. More or less created by one man "Remigiusz Michalski".
Yes this game has a little budget, yes it shows up. But yet, this game is excellent.
The horror elements don't rely on jumpscares. To put it in perspective, this game is more silent hill than resident evil. It messes with your head because of the Incredible atmosphere, ambiance. When playing you'll feel weird, sad, disgusted, and once you'll leave your PC it will stick with you for the rest of the day.

Gameplay
The game as a 2D sidescroller, with puzzle elements. Think 2D myst / broken sword / etc but horrific.
Puzzles are not difficult, they shouldn't put you outside of the horror mood. There is no puzzle worth taking hours to solve. At the exception of the very beginning at the hospital. I admit it, I had to look at a guide, but it didn't ruined my experience of the game. Aside from that, there is no moonlogic, crazy inventory puzzles, unnecessary back and forth to push a certain button to unlock a certain door somewhere, etc. The game mostly play itself. I had no trouble whatsoever playing with a keyboard, although it might be problematic if you want to play with a controller, I haven't tested but you might need to use joytokey or tweak it a little.
You're not really playing the CatLady for its innovations in the game mechanics field. You're here for the mood, the story. And that it nails.


Visual
Ok this is the tricky subject. The Cat Lady is weird, and it shows up through its visuals. You may not like them, but they' don't ask to be liked. On the contrary, visuals are here to carry emotions, to express the anxiety, if they disgust / put you off then the author has done a good job, don't you think?
But still if you absolutely want to be technical, there is little graphic options, the API is outdated beyond any hope, characters's sprites have a low resolutions. Some assets are iin 3D, some are in 2D, it's a mess. It's not coherent, it will unsettle you... But once again, that's what the author was aiming for.

Audio
The OST enhance the atmosphere of the game considerably, whether it is fully instrumentals, with or without lyrics, clean music or full experimental distorted sounds. it's done just right.
There is few foley sounds and they may sounds cheap if you listen carefuly. But the minimalist approach goes hand in hand with the horror game style.
Dialogs are fully dub, once again if you really listen to them you might hear some static every now and then, but nothing game breaking.

Writing (english version)
The writing is descent, it does its job correctly, no cheesy lines, not too much text, just the right amount.
It is obviously dark and depressive, but not only. The author understood that writing a 100% depressive has much less impact than writing a believable world. A realist one, with multiple characters, personality, anxiety, memories, everyone has its own cross, you'll understand and get close (or not) to the characters of this game. Overall good choices in writing even if I wanted to nitpick I guess some phrases are weirdly put, but it's not like I've got a good enough level of english to complain about that.
The scenario tackles some heavy subjects. One of the principal being suicidal depression (as shown in the trailer). So be ready to deal with dark subjects. But weirdly enough .... I would recommend this game to depressed people, not all of them. But I think it should be easy enough for most people to identify as the main character and to take lessons from the game. At least it can be cathartic, and it can help to have a game talking honestly about subjects like that, no taking gloves, plain honesty.
I can't really tell more about that without spoiling the story... So to cut it short, I'll just say there is multiple dialogs with multiple choices and therefore multiple endings, giving the game some replayability value.

Conclusion
Look at the trailer, if visuals don't make you vomit and you are looking for a visceral atmospheric horror game. Go for it !
And once you've done that, you may also want to take a look at his previous game "Downfall", or maybe "Silence of the Sleep" by Jacob Reeves.

I don't know what kind of game I was expecting when I started The Cat Lady, but 15 minutes in I was totally hooked. This is a great adventure game. Spooky, with a good story, and a surreal, nightmarish atmosphere. This game has cannibals, and serial killers, and a madman who frames their victims, posing them using wires and cables as art exhibits, and one guy is attacked and eaten by cats, and there's a young woman dying from cancer, and there's an middle-aged woman dying of depression. Bare cupboards and spoiled milk and peeling paint and everything all mixed up in a giant pot of unsettling clip-art style scenery.

This is seriously 18+, because of some arguments. I recommend to do not play this if you're under 18. Anyways this is a great game. Really, awesome. The atmosphere, the sounds, the stories and the well developed characters. Plus this has a unique type of artstyle that makes you feel like "Okay, this is not a normal creepy indie, this is gonna be cool".
Try it out, with or without sales it's worth the money c:
