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.

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

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.

A very short, informative and insteresting game with a unique style. Game play is simple which keeps the focus on the story and information. It's free and small file size so sure can't complain. Worth a try. You could even finish this while on a coffee break.

This game was amazing! I thought it'd just be a fun timekiller, but i got really into it and fascinated in the journey. I always was bad with history but this was just a great path for me, and it was a great experience.

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.

This game opens a door to a brief part of the history of Iran. Focussing on Dr. Mohammed Mossadegh and his time as prime minister of the country, the game offers simple puzzles to and a summary of Mossadegh's struggle. The elegant art reminds of paper collages, illustrated headlines of the significant moments of Mossadegh's time in the government.
Very interesting piece of work.

My brain approves of history and physics.
My eyes approves of watching the kitty bother Mr. Mossadegh.
My ears approves the classical music.
My nose disapproves the smell of oil filling my room...
My mouth has no say in this!

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.

It was a great 5 minutes, if you dont want to download a huge game then try this. I did not expect a options menu from there. It was basic but it sure was there. I am sure that this would make learning more intresting. Play it kids

This is a really great game! First off, it's free. There are no microtransactions or anything like that. So that issue is out of the way. Second off, it's short. It took me no time at all to complete! And lastly, there are some fun puzzles in this game to coomplete, as well as some cool art. So in short, I highly suggest this game!

Interesting and rather lovely way of talking about a critical event we gloss over far too much. Very original, graphically akin to Monty Python or Yellow Submarine. Quite short, more could be made of it.

Simply, effective, direct, mondial history explained using official news and playing as a cat.
Funny but don't really clear. However with some patience every mini-games will be resolved easly.

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.

This game was beautiful. I would pay for a longer version of this with more history.
