The First Ever Update is Here!

Hello folks!

We're pleased to announce a brand-new update that fixes a variety of bugs and other issues to improve the quality of the game. While we have done what we can to verify that the update fixes the listed problems, we have a fairly limited sample size of tested systems, so please report any issues you encounter with the following elements:

- Fixed the introductory logo not playing on some systems. The Lemon Curd Games logo should now appear, animate and play its sounds correctly.

- Corrected a number of typing errors.

- Fixed the credits not playing when the button was pressed or the game completed.

- Various bugs causing characters not to appear on the screen should now be fixed.

- Added text to correct a minor narrative error.

Note: If your game doesn't update automatically, you can uninstall the game and simply install it again. This will not remove your save. Once the new update is installed, you can resume your old save just as before. If you wish to backup your save manually, go into the Cateau folder and copy the save.bin file and save this copy wherever you like. You can then import it into Cateau by simply pasting it into the folder.

Cateau Hits 1,000 Downloads!

Just a few moments ago, Cateau broke into the four-digit range, exceeding 1,000 unique downloads on Steam and over 2370 units distributed.

Not only has Cateau been doing well on Steam, the Android version too has exceeded our expectations, reaching over 320 unique downloads at the time of writing.

We never expected our game to have such a following or for it to receive such good reviews from our players. We have said it before and may end up saying it again in the future, but thank you all for your truly amazing support.

For those interested, here's the link to the mobile version, which is also available completely for free:

“A great narrative makes us want to see what comes next, and this game keeps you immersed. You belong in a small context, but it makes you want to see more, and we’re excited to see where this game can go. It’s adorable, it’s charming, it’s beautiful. – Swedish Game Awards Gala 2018 citation for Best Execution in Narrative”

About This Game

Set in Paris, Cateau is a visual novel that takes the idea of friendship and investigates it through a particular lens – what it might take to actually be a friend in more than concept alone. As the protagonist, you come to understand that your friend and roommate Roselle is unwell. You take it upon yourself to try and rekindle that spark of life that seems to have gone out by engaging in one of her former interests, cats. While sauntering up and down the cozy streets of the City of Lights, whether it be to get to work, run errands, or simply enjoy the town, you will come to encounter three distinctly different cats. Their personalities being fundamentally unlike one another, it's up to you to enter unfamiliar waters, figuring them out as you attempt to bring your friend back. The multiple, varied endings give each choice, big or small, tangible consequence.
