About This Game


ShadowKitty: Thief by Night is the adventure of a teenager catgirl stealing back stolen arts from criminals and bringing it all back to the museum.

The game is a fun 2D Action Platformer heavily inspired by games like Megaman X, Spelunky, Ducktales Remastered and CupHead, while also being inspired by retro cartoon shows like Batman: The Animated Series, DuckTales, TMNT - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, X-Men and DarkWing Duck. There´s also a little bit of Anime influences in the game.

- Since the game is still under development, it might take longer than planned to develop it -
- There´s no gameplay videos for now, I´ll have it later this year -

Shadowkitty will be a fast paced action platformer where you must search every stage for stolen arts and defeat a Boss at the end of each stage.

ShadowKitty can make combos with her claws or use non-lethal weapons (Gummy Gun, Boomerang and Smoke Bomb) against her enemies.

You can unlock a Secret Boss if you collect a secret art piece in each regular stage, but don´t worry, you can replay, I mean 'Reprise' each stage again anytime, but since the layouts of the stages are all procedural, the layout will always change everytime you play the game or enter/restart a stage.

There are a few puzzles in the stages, but nothing really complex, like avoiding lasers, searching for keys, hiding from searchlights or pressing a button in a terminal that unlocks a door for a limited time.

There´s also some Visual Novel story segments in the game (but you can skip all cutscenes).
Defeated Bosses will reappear again for a re-fight in the final stages of the game.
