點評
The cat and the Coup是一款藝文取向的免費獨立遊戲,他的主要內容乃是透過一隻黑貓的視角,從一個房間到另一個房間一點一滴地了解Mohammad Mosaddegh從政時所發生的事件。雖然這種略帶解謎要素的小遊戲以前曾經玩過,不過此類類傳記的方式與敘述手法實在太過新穎(應該說筆者玩過的遊戲太少),是那種會在腦中留下深刻印象的遊戲。音樂不只與遊戲內事物有高度連結,也隨著事件進行有高低起伏,從而引起玩家帶入感。遊戲內沒有主觀的價值判斷,只有對史實的一行文字敘述與象徵性的房間,安靜略帶新奇的音樂使人沉靜於他所說的故事。

Mohammad Mosaddegh作為一位伊朗民選首相,任內大興改革,內政上將伊朗多處不合時宜、不公平的社會制度改變,外交上也透過石油國有化降低英國對伊朗的控制。而他執政期間的各式故事也對今天的伊朗有著重要的影響,可以透過這些事件進一步理解伊朗與西方國家尤其是英美的關係為何至此。

唯一不推薦的理由應該是語言與歷史,不會英語或對於伊朗歷史(/國際現狀)沒興趣可能不會這麼推薦,至於其他有條件的玩家們可以停下腳步花個十來分鐘體會一下藝術氛圍與歷史。

Definitely an artsy game that'll appeal to people who like video games for more than just being base entertainment.

...Like me!

"The Cat and the Coup" tells the story of the former Iranian Prime Minister, Mohammed Mossadegh, and... I really liked it. I wasn't sure what to think when I saw the advertising and also that this was on the "Video Games as Art" article on Wikipedia (which they also included "Tempest 2000" and "Vib Ribbon"... for some reason), but needless to say I was very impressed.

I really like the storybook aesthetics of the game, like you're seeing this history unfold across tapestries, old photographs, and pictures cut out of magazines. Along with this, the animations on Mossadegh and the Cat look very blocky but still well-animated, like they belong with the rest of the scattered images in the game. And the game mechanics and story are influenced by you as a little, black cat pushing around the unfortunate Mossadegh, which is incredibly symbolic.

See, throughout the game, a lot of the puzzles involve balance, almost as if saying that the Prime Minister was trying to find a balance between his people and the other countries looking to get that oil, but because of bad fortune in his path, he just happened to be a stepping stone for the U.S. to grind their feet into, and a door for the Iranian people to knock down, and move onto a better life. He's constantly falling and being messed with by the cat, which really makes you feel sorry for the poor chum. He was just trying to do what any man would do in his position, and he keeps getting sh** on.

I can't think of any issues I had with the game, personally. The over-realiance on text here and there bothered me a little (but that's more of a personal gripe). Beyond that though, it uses intuitive puzzles to tell a story in a unique and intriguing manner. I can see some people throwing a fit for the game being 15 minutes, but it tells the story it aims to tell in that amount of time, and does it damn well.

I'm gonna give "The Cat and the Coup" a 9/10. If you like what video games can do as an artform, and how they can effect people emotionally in their own unique manner, this game is definitely the game for you.
