Before I start this review, I want to thank IDSpike for giving this game to me last week. Thanks man, you're the best. If you ever want a game around $10 on steam, just tell me and I'll repay you back. Now on with the review. The Cat Lady is a point and click game, recently released on Steam while previously it's on the game's web for sale for $10. The game opens with the main character, Susan Ashworth, drinking sleeping pills to commit suicide. She succeeds, and in purgatory, she met this old lady who calls herself the Queen of Maggots. This old lady is giving Susan a chance to live again, to appreciate life by assigning her a duty: kill 5 parasites which are basically people that needs to just die. She is given immortality, and cannot die unless those 5 people are dead. And then her adventure begins, starting with waking up in a hospital. The game's graphic is like Sin City where most of the time it's black and white blood to color things, but there's sections of the game where it's in full color. It's quite interesting and simplistic to see, and it's perfect for the gruesome things that's in the game. If you are familiar with a point and click adventure game, you'll know what to do here. No mouse though, just using keyboard. Pick objects by trial and error, use one object on this location etc. Killing the parasites are like solving a puzzle through trial and error, and it's not like Walking Dead where you have this cursor that you have to aim to the enemies. Every parasite is different, and there's only 1 way to kill them, except the first one which has 2 ways of killing him, but that's just for the sake of achievement if you want. One puzzle in the game makes no sense at all and will leave you with a "that's bullshit!" feeling, and it's on the second chapter. In it, you have to get a red liquid, which is actually kind of like a painkiller for this woman. Problem is, to get the red liquid, you have to be heavily sedated, and while you are tripping balls, you have to go to the hospital's receptionist desk, and find a huge red heart that you have to cut to get the blood which is the liquid you are looking for. And then you go to bed and give it to the person that wants it. There is only 2 of this kind of puzzle, but the second one is much more straightforward. The story in this game is pretty interesting. Let's just say it's basically Susan's journey to get cured of her emo issue while making sure that murderers like the parasites go to hell. Susan lives in this really old and dirty looking apartment, and her only friend are a bunch of cats that comes to her apartment whenever she plays her piano, hence the nickname Cat Lady is given to her by her neighbors. During chapter 4 she meets this woman named Mitzi who looks like a goth or an emo, but she hates being called that, and she's looking for a place to live, which is Susan's apartment. She's a really cool chick that's always making jokes, and it's Susan's only human friend that at first she hates, but as time passes they became good friends. There are 7 chapters in this game, and a couple of them like chapter 3 and 6 are radically different than the other ones. In the third chapter, you're just making coffee, smoke a cigar, eat hamburger and summon your cats, but there's this stress meter that will rise up if you screw up. The first time playing through this section, you will fail miserably and Susan will flip out, but it doesn't do anything to the next chapter except that you don't get the golden ending. You have to know what not to do to get past this section with low stress meter. Chapter 6 is just you going around your apartment to look for people, so you have to go to different floors and knock on people's door. This chapter is the funniest chapter in the whole game because of the constant sarcasms that both Mitzi and Susan are having. And there's one section involving a giant cat zombie that has to be seen. The final chapter is in my opinion, quite anticlimactic. The final parasite is the most normal out of all the other ones, and his crime is actually quite tame compared to the other psychos Susan has to deal with. But just because it's anticlimactic, doesn't mean it's not awesome cause it is. It's just the most normal thing in the game, but taking the bastard down is both satisfying and heartwarming. Overall, quite an interesting and awesome adventure game with an interesting and dark mature story. I give this game the rating of so good that I can't wait for the sequel (if there is any). Now if you guys don't want to bother playing the game and want me to tell you the story, please let me know so I will tell you in a PM, because this game has quite a good one.
