This game is one I have literally played for a minimum of 74 hours. I have got all the achievements ( about to get the last one). I have to say I still love this game after playing it, over and over again. Yes it can get repetitive, but this game is just so fantastic, I have to say it's quite captive. Yes, The slow walking can get to you. However, It is a 2012 game. The storyline can emerse you on a certain level. I also find it quite a classical way of the art style, and game mechanics. This game has over all been in my tops, certainly not next to life is strange, but still, in my tops! And You people do have to remember this is a Story rich game. So, the matter of fact, not much action will happen key wise, it is more for movie like style.

As of this writing, I'm only about halfway through the game, but I feel a review is justified at this point.
I'm loving this game. It's creepy, the story keeps me interested, (I can't bring myself to play if anyone's around---I might miss dialogue.) and the voice acting is absolutely superb.
On the other hand, there's little replay value, the movement is too slow while playing, and the save system needs a total revamp.
In spite of this, I feel the good outweighs the bad. Even if you only play it the one time through, it's well worth the money.

I wasn't sure what to expect but it is a complete masterpiece! It's a different kind of horror game than I am used to. The story is very interesting and shows the depth of depression of the character.

It's a gloomy yet intriguing adventure. While not technically perfect, it surely stands out for its deep, mature writing and artistic style. Visuals and sounds are also perfectly tuned with the mood.

Öncelikle ben bu oyunu çok heves ederek aldım, beklentim çok yüksekti . Oyun başlarında acaba bu kadar heveslenmesemiydim dedim ama sonradan kesinlikle doğru yaptığımı anladım. Kesinlikle bağımlılık yapıyor ve bittiğinde ben kendimi boşlukta hissettim. Müzik ve çizim olarakta tek kelimeyle harika. Eğer almak konusunda kararsızsanız kesinlikle bu oyunun tadına bakmanızı önerir ve alın derim.

GET THIS GAME NOW. I absolutely adored this game and it may partially biased due to my obsession with cats, however this is unlike any other game. The story is very deep and sensitive on an emotional level and you must prepare yourself for that, also many people do not know this, there is a prequel to the game called Downfall, so if you finish the game go play that, I still have yet to play it. The art style is very unique; it's dark, gory, horrific but it matches the overall mood of the game so nothing is out of place.

The beginning will be very confusing, especially those who have not ever experienced similar feelings to the main character, Susan Ashworth. The story will slowly unravel so keep playing. ALSO, if something does not make sense, that's okay, there are a lot of things in which you just have to go with your gut and make a decision, so if you're lost or stuck, listen very closely or pay attention to details.

10/10 always kept me captivated. My only issue was probably how slowly I walked through the fog, and how there is no auto-save (had to start over a couple times, but it's alright).

Loved this game, will absolutely play it gain!

Also forgot to mention the soundtrack went so well with the art style and mood of the game.

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 .

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.

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 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.

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.

Good story, characters and ambience.
Art is interesting.
Great soundtrack, really adds to the game.

If you like point and click style games, this one is not a let down, although have in mind it focus more on story than difficulty.

Not what I expected. Tremendously better than what I expected. A true gem which enables a normal person to look into the depths of depression, without being cheesy. I will remember this game for a very long time.

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:
