The Cat Lady demo now available for pouncing

Production on The Cat Lady has been purring like a kitten at Harvester Games – a gory, blood-soaked kitten, mind you – as seen in the newly released playable demo.

The Cat Lady is Susan Ashworth, but when the 40-year old is given a second chance at life following her revival from a suicide attempt, it's not cats she needs to worry about, but five "Parasites" who represent "the most ruthless, deranged and cold-blooded bunch of psychopaths the city has ever known. They will stop at nothing to hurt Susan. Unless, she hurts them first..."

While the demo eases players in with an on-screen tutorial of its keyboard mechanics, it throws you straight into the middle of the story with Susan and her friend Mitzi arriving at the apartment of a deranged former acquaintance, completely unprepared for the horrors that await. The sampler is over 300 MB in size, and can be downloaded from the official website. As with developer Remigiusz Michalski's previous game, Downfall, The Cat Lady is full of mature content and is not intended for children. 

The Cat Lady is currently scheduled for release this Halloween, October 31st.

I totally enjoyed Harvesters previous game Downfall immensly. It was a sad very gore horror adventure with great scary atmosphere. And as it says above is NOT recommeded for kids (16+ should be ok)

The Art-style is definitely not everybodies taste, since it is a more abstract and crude than most other games. This is a asthetic choice, not lack of talent. If the new adventure is as gory and fresh as Downfall was I am all into it.

The only grudge I have with this author is his lack of caring with his finished products. Downfall had 3 endings and one of them was not accessable due to a bug that never got fixed. The rest went smooth though.

It doesn’t look particularly attractive to me either, but then again, I’m more into the comedy/cartoon genre, however, I’m not gonna recommend any game from that department here:)

As far as graphics goes, I believe that it’s part of what makes the atmosphere in a game, so graphics should matter. If a horror adventure was presented in a Disney cartoon style, it would greatly disturb the atmosphere, no?

I have nothing against the game, the opposite - I very appreciate the idea of the game and the developer who work on his own. It just doesn’t seem appeal to me and I think that Blackwell is also psychological, maybe more lighthearted but I think that you will like it.

Obviously it’s an amateur, one-man game; it wouldn’t fool anyone into thinking otherwise, but it doesn’t look bad on those terms and it certainly seems atmospheric. And I always credit a lone developer who tries to instill some sort of visual identity into a game, rather than letting it stand just on gameplay or story. Adventurequests,  I don’t see what randomly recommending some other totally unrelated game from an unrelated genre (ie not horror) brings to a discussion about the game. To be honest, it makes it sound like you have a personal grudge against this game or its developer because it is so out of the blue, and, to be honest, so irrelevant. I could say, ‘Play Riven instead, you won’t regret it’ but what does it have to do with this game and how does it have relevance to someone interested in playing a pyschological, dark horror game?

Hello MoonBird,
for me it’s not about the art side. It’s the atmosphere - I don’t find it very attractive.
If an adventure game has good and stong atmosphere - I will like it no matter the graphics.

Yes. Those graphics are definitely very ugly. I see that they’ve tried to make them artistic, but the result is a big fat failure.

Doesn’t look like an attractive game to me. I’m sorry…

I recommend the Blackwell series. you won’t regret
