In Adventure The Cat Lady we head out on a dark and disturbing journey into the depths of the human psyche.
Right at the beginning of The Cat Lady Susan commits suicide so. Surprisingly, her spirit wakes but in a surreal and colorful world. They can not believe their eyes. A blue sky and amber wheat field. When was the last time they saw only their environment in such abundance of color? Is it in paradise? Are the torment over? Unsuspecting and full of hope for salvation she progresses through the dreamlike world.
Susan will get a second chance, but the price is high. You should kill five people on behalf of the old woman. They would indeed seem harmless and peaceful at first glance, but are in fact terrible monster.
So Susan can commit the murders, you want the old woman give immortality as long as is also only one of the five people alive. If the cat lady dies or kills himself, her spirit returns after a short stop in the intermediate world back into her human body back.
The Cat Lady is not a Point'n'Click adventure in the classic sense. The game is entirely controlled by the arrow keys and Enter and is decorated throughout in 2D. So Susan moves similar to a side-scroller exclusively to the left and right. We reach a relevant hotspot, can be opened with the upper arrow key to highlight the interaction menu is again selected an action from the and pressing the Return key.
To access the inventory, we press the down arrow key. The interaction and movement possibilities are so pretty limited, but reinforce the feeling of tightness and hopelessness on mechanical and optical level.
However, it is a pity that we can not combine multiple objects together within the inventory. This is the game only indirectly possible (eg by means of a workbench), what the puzzle fun but does not detract.
Adventure typically we have in The Cat Lady solve all kinds of puzzles and combine items together. The puzzles are mostly logical and comprehensible, and we rarely have trouble finding the right items. A boring walk is puzzling but not. So we have to flee for example, at one point in the game from the torture chamber of a brutal ♥♥♥♥♥♥. The problem here is that Susan is unarmed while their tormentors equipped with a gun in the next room holds a nap before settling his victim "take care" wants.
The Cat Lady also underlines visually and acoustically his adult character. Regularly be dark sections alternate black and white from colorful passages. The game is often decorated in muted colors or equal to black and white and rather reminiscent of an artistic and experimental comic than a game. Succeeded how Susan's psyche in the barren interior areas reflects: While it is at once beautiful around them, it remains in her and her home still dark and dreary. The backgrounds were incidentally composed of edited photos and painted elements. On her move the drawn and only rudimentary animated characters.
The Cat Lady uses the framework of a horror story to set up a truly mature and moving portrait of a woman attempting to claw her way out of pain and sadness.
Score: 83 / 100
