Om detta spel

The Cat and the Coup is a documentary game in which you play the cat of Dr. Mohammed Mossadegh, the first democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran. During the summer of 1953, the CIA engineered a coup to bring about his downfall. As a player, you coax Mossadegh back through significant events of his life by knocking objects off of shelves, scattering his papers, jumping on his lap and scratching him.

This short puzzle game introduces you to an important event during the 20th century. As the cat of an innocuous elderly man under house arrest, you help him revisit his memories of the 1950s when he served as the first democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran before the coup d'état that wrongfully disposed of him. I recommend reading All the Shah's Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror after playing this game to further understand the history of modern Iran and the ramifications of the coup on the next century.

A beautiful game, the visuals, the art and the sound are all perfect and this game is still only in beta, the full release should see much needed bug improvements which I wait for with excitement. The game tells a tragic, but liberating tale in which you spectate in the view of a cat. The controls are tight and even beginners shouldn't have any trouble with this game. A true classic which will be looked back on by generations to come. If anything this game is ahead of its time. A real 10/10.

On the first layer: Wonderful visual design with a pleasant soundtrack to back it up. Every inch of this game has a vibrant aesthetic.
On the second layer: A brief history lesson on the Irani Revolution, told from a non-Western perspective, which is very rare to a Western gamer, told via the scenes themselves and the occasional snippet of newspaper in the background.
Put together: A short, but impactful, beautiful, and expertly created piece of historical art.

And it's got a kitty in it. I like kitties.

This isn't so much a game as it is a piece of interactive art, telling you a story as you solve relatively simple puzzles. It keeps you engaged with the story of Dr. Mohammed Mossadegh with its surreal art. You "help" the doctor plod along his path to his inevitable fate and in doing so may feel as if you are either betraying him or punishing him. That depends on your politics.

If you're an art and history fan, I'd give it a play.
