What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Kakatte Koi Yo started as a student project by four college students. Releasing on Steam is a huge step, but we also believe that the game is not to the point of a finished product. We intend to use the opportunity to grow and develop the game with our budding community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our visions for a stopping point on this game are broad. We want to steer away from large amounts of DLC, and as such we want to make sure we can pack as much as possible into the game before we call it a finished product. We are shooting for a year until the full release, but we can't promise we will want to be done.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Features we plan on having in ASAP
  • Steamworks, including remote play
  • A UI overhaul focusing on better transmitting important information to players.
  • A bunch of new fish we hope will add a lot of depth to the game
  • Combat and health redesign that will make combat more dynamic and fluid
  • A Power-up system where players can mix and match different abilities to empower their team depending on which fish they score. These abilities will range from increases in speed to powerful shields and many other game-changing effects.
  • New maps
  • And much more!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently supports up to 4 players in local multiplayer, along with a single-player set of challenge modes. There are over a dozen maps to fight on and six different weapons to change the player's moveset.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“As we add content to the game, we do plan to increase the price of the game. We see it as a good way to reflect the state of the game and also reward early supporters.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We have an active Discord that players can join to talk directly with the developers to give feedback or ideas. We are also on Twitter and love communicating with our community.”

About This Game


Kakatte Koi Yo! is a platform fighter where cats battle with powerful fish. With the use of Japanese theming and the irresistible adorableness of cats, KKY creates a fun, fast-paced, competitive co-op game. Players can fight in 1v1 or 2v2 matches where they have three ways to win the round!


Instantly win the round by blowing your opponent's shrine to smithereens with the bomb. Cats are small, and the bomb is big and heavy, don't forget to grab a fish before trying to move it!


Dunk, snipe, and swish your favorite fish into your basket to earn a point, getting you one step closer to sweet victory.


If you are less of a strategist and more of a fighter, forget the other objectives and take your opponent head-on. Drain your opponent's health to ring them out and gain a point. (If you get to the point cap from ring outs and scored fish, you win!)


Test and hone your skills in the single-player training mode.
