That's right, ladies and gentlemen! Katie has been reworked to be entirely playable on the HTC Vive! Simply launch the game through SteamVR and revisit the town like never before! Or like... in a more immersive way than before!

For the majority of you without headsets, I made the update as lightweight as possible, so the VR part of the build should take up a few extra MBs at most.
Happy exploring!

Supermarket Mesh Fix (August 21, 2018)

Apparently the interior of the Supermarket has been glitched since the last update. :/

Thanks to some sporadic bug testers, this issue has been found and solved, and the shelves will no longer appear to float.

UPDATE: I know it's been a while since I mentioned it, but the 'secrets update' has a direction and progress. It won't detract from the story, but should provide bonus content and additive plot.

About This Game

Now with full Vive VR support!

An isolated town.
Dozens of ensnared citizens.
Each with their own thoughts, each with their own reasons for ending up here.

But only one will listen.
Find her.

Katie, at it's core, is a game about understanding. About talking, dwelling, thinking. Walk around, speak to people, explore the town, uncover secrets (if that's your thing), and listen to Katie. Written during a time of immense personal transition, Katie is a casual yet vulnerable reflection on friendship, dealing with loss, and the pursuit of meaning in the midst of chaos. It's an expression of mind laid bare in a vicarious manner, and a narrative of a life on the verge of sanity.


  • A fully realized, living, 3D pixel-art town, cut off from the rest of society and ready for exploration.
  • Dozens of handmade citizens, each with their own look and Idea that they're willing to express. Talk to them, ignore them, or let them be.
  • A vulnerable narrative that unfolds over a week as you interact with the individual that gave this game it's namesake, and seek to understand what drives the heart of the town.
  • Walk around, look around, be around.
  • Secrets, with more to come.
  • Fully realized swings (to relive your elementary days).
