The Cat and The Coup is a very short game where you kind of play a history lesson... as a cat. I like history and I love all animals, and I really love games where you get to play as animals. I first got interested in it when I saw the art, which is this really cool style that looks kind of like a scrap book. I was further interested when I saw that you get to play as a cat. It took me 20 minutes to play through it because there aren't any real directions and a couple of the rooms were really confusing for me, in regards to what you had to do to progress. In order to get further into the brief history lesson, you have to interact with the environment in such a way that leads the human to fall out of the room you're in and into the next room. The music in the game, paired with the art and photos, gives it a great atmosphere. I am definitely having my history buff friend play this, just because it was an interesting game. I got to have fun while learning something new. Now if only all history classes were taught like this, I think more kids might pay attention.

Did I mention Nine Inch Nails is on the soundtrack? Because Nine Inch Nails is on the Sondtrack.

Edit: I just wanted to add that the mechanics of the game remind me of The Bridge, so if you played and liked The Bridge, you'll probably enjoy this game.

This is a very interesting game. It tells the story of Dr. Mohammed Mossadegh, the first Prime Minister of Iran, and you play his black cat. As the cat you lead him through his own story. The graphics are stunning, and it is a bit educational as well. It triggered me to look up more about the past of Iran to understand it a bit more.

It only takes 30 mins and it is free, so I recommend to try it out.

My rating for this game: 7/10.

This game had me at "The Cat". It's a game about Iranian history, simple puzzles, capitalism, and cats. The only questionable part of the former sentence is whether the game is a game or not. It takes about 15 minutes to complete and most of the time is spent reading. Either way, I found it quite enlightening and touching.

Definitely worth playing, mostly to see a different style of interactive media.

A really cool way to present a bit of history couched in a bit of gameplay. More games like this on Steam, please.

The proof that a video game doesn t have to be a game to be impressive.
I would call The Cat and the Coup a masterpiece, even though playing this game isn t challenging or even fun in any other way, then finding the way the truth about what happened is revealed awesome.
And this might be the point. The Cat and the Coup is maybe more art than game. More history lesson than entertainment media. More experiment than the perfection of a certain concept. For this I love The Cat and the Coup.

As it says, it's an informative short chronicle of an Iranian coup in the 1950s. It's portrayed very effectively, with pure symbolism and a surrealist art style. Absolutely fantastic and very interesting. I was moved a lot in 13 minutes.

It's free and takes less than 20 minutes to complete.

Gives you some history of Iran if you're not caught up with being the jackass cat knocking an old man out of a house repeatedly. It looks pretty good aesthetically with that mimicing of Indian (?) art. Also one of the Ghosts I-IV songs plays (I: 9) near the end which was cool.

Learn history, is free, is short, is weird, nine inch nails song, be cat who is mean to old man,

A quick, free 'game' that explains some Iranian history through the use of symbolism and cats. Even if you don't know symbolism, it will be easy enough to understand what's going on and what it's saying

Don't expect a lot of gameplay though, it is not intended to give you long lasting gameplay or mind bending puzzles, but it is good at what it is intended for.

It's free, quick to download, and I would say worth some time to check it out.

After completing this game i realized that there is something special about this game, something you cant explain with words. The graphics are beautiful, the gameplay is relaxing and fun, the music is really freaky but still relaxing at the same time so why are there no more games like this? I highly recommend you to try this game out, its a history trip you wont forget.

A great game for just 16 minutes.

The art style is very appealing and it goes really well with the soundtrack, which is really nice by the way.

The story is pretty interesting for just 16 minutes and it's pretty sad.

Oh and the game has cats in it.

9/10 becos I want moar.

The Cat and the Coup, a beautiful indie game that's part puzzle, part point and click, all acid trip. It's art style is heavily influenced by Terry Gilliam of Monty Python fame, and is effective in expressing the chaos of the "little" tale it has to tell. Be forewarned-the game is surprisingly short (I managed to beat it in four minutes tops), but despite the time constraint, it powerfully conveys the tragic, emoitonally heart-rending real-life tale of Dr. Mohammed Mossadegh, the first democratically elected leader of Iran and the CIA's long struggle to overthrow him.

you can get through the game in 15-30 mins but it is very well worth it it's very interesting, beautiful and teaches some things you most likely would never have known about iran and since it's free and won't take much time out of your day you might as well try it

Trippin' balls, man...

But seriously, this has "modern art" written all over it. For those that hate games that are light on gameplay and heavy on metaphor... well, that's exactly what this game is.

It's strictly linear, with no chance for exploration, and there are just a few sorta-puzzles to keep you entertained while you go backwards through time without context. Then, it reverses, and you see the events play out in the proper order in context, with the disguised elements revealed for what they really are.

It's free, so if "a 5-minute game telling the story of the rise of the Shah of Iran" sounds like it might possibly be interesting, there's no reason not to play it.

Totally psychedelic, the Arab vision of the world: all other people are beasts, Americans with lizard heads etc.

Definitely worth a look.

Highly recommend it, it's a very short free game that has a very surreal take on Iranian history, the puzzles are easy, yet fun and like I said it's free.
