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.

8.5/10 - 13 Minute Documentary Style Game!

I really dig this style. I love documentaries and games so putting the 2 together is a clever move. You play as a cat to the first democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran. Different simple destruction based puzzles trigger new events and progress the biography.

The art is brilliantly done and I actually retained quite a bit of information from this short game. I'd like to see more of this genre!

FREE - A wisely spent 15 minutes.
