“It’s beautiful, it’s moving, it’s frightening, it’s metaphysical, it’s allegorical, it’s mechanically as well as intellectually clever.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“...free, fun and beautiful documentary game about a CIA-funded coup.”
PC Gamer

“The video game industry is, right now, inunduated by trends and developers who find the unceasing need to be exactly like everyone else. For once, I'm hoping they'd do the same here and pick up The Cat and the Coup's aesthetically pleasing frankness and make it common place.”
Gamasutra

About This Game

New art, new music, and in French and Spanish.

In The Cat and the Coup, you play the cat of Dr. Mohammed Mossadegh, the first democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran. During the summer of 1953, the CIA engineered a coup to bring about his downfall. As a player, you coax Mossadegh back through significant events of his life by knocking objects off shelves, scattering his papers, and scratching him.
The game, situated within the traditions of Persian miniature art form and cold war foreign policy, asks players to consider their connection to Iranian history. The Cat and the Coup is both about the relationship between the Western video game player and Mossadegh and, by extension, the United States and Iran. It lays a foundation for today’s critical question -- how do the people know when their democracy is threatened?
