Major update is a remaster

If you already had The Cat and the Coup in your Steam library, you might have noticed a significant update.

Last year we remastered it in 4K. Everything is re-coded, the sound and music are updated, and the art/world is significantly embellished. Indeed, we released this remaster last year for $1.99, but now it's time to go back to Plan A - give it away to all as an update of the 2011 release.

About This Game

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?
