Now available at Desura

Hello adult Boomers...Fancy playing something a little darker this Christmas? I'm pleased to announce that sales of The Cat Lady have begun at the official website and Screen 7 :) You can get a DRM free digital download from there and the soundtrack. DVD's are available very soon and we're just waiting on final Desura approval when it will appear there.



"A horror story that should be enjoyed for years to come" - Link Dead Gaming

"Just finished perhaps the most unique adventure game I've ever played. Simply a remarkable experience." - Nick Wheeler via Twitter

The game isn't suitable for under 18's as it has strong adult themes from the offset. But it's a well presented game that treats you like a mature player - it's not tasteless and certainly very gripping. The Cat Lady has been designed and made by Remigiusz Michalski, author of Downfall which was a popular point & click adventure a few years ago. You won't need your mouse this time round as the game features simple keyboard controls to allow a more fluent experience.

Now available at Desura

There's more information, trailers and a synopsis on the official website: http://www.thecatlady.co.uk

Don't forget you can have a go on this and many other new indie adventure games at AdventureX on Dec 15th and 16th in London. Thanks for your support and have a great Christmas!

Yes! Been following this one closely for awhile, now. Congrats on getting it out the door. thumbsup12

This seems as good a place as any to ask: is a client program required to download, install, or run the game, if bought via Desura? Only I've never used them before and would rather not mess with that whole Steam-esque nonsense. Ideally I'd purchase it directly from the devs, but I'm not the biggest fan of PayPal, either.

LeBelleRachael: According to the website, the DVD editions will ship worldwide - for free. smile12 The download is evidently only 665* megs, though, so... grin12

(*So close! devil )

Thanks for the interest & replies! The Desura edition isn't available yet, and I'm not entirely sure how it's distributed. I've uploaded to them the normal installer, I'm not sure if they send it out as is or turn it into something that requires Desura interface. As soon as that becomes clear I'll let you know. They've not approved the download yet though which is why the game isn't showing on Desura.

The game can be bought worldwide, and so can the DVD's, they'll take about 4 days to ship in the USA and 7-14 days elsewhere in the world. Again though, they're not quite ready. Both DVD's MAY be available from this Friday coming if all goes well.

No problem hamer, I'm a traditionalist too (mouse) but actually found it to be a nice break from tradition, really helps keep the story and puzzles moving. No bias, that's my view as a player :)

I just wanted to say it's now available at Desura and if you get time do please vote for the game at the IndieDB Indie of the Year awards laugh

Cheers!

So, would anyone care to offer their opinions on Desura? Particularly their policies on DRM (clients/activations, etc.). ;)

Yeah, I may have to do just that; I'm kinda stingy with giving out my email address, is all, especially to "random" companies that I might not even end up buying from. And I was hoping for some general impressions from people who've used the service, in any case. So far, my Google-Fu is yielding contradictory information (unsurprisingly - go, internet!).

Anywhoo. Thanks for the reply.

Hey there,

I've just finished playing this amazing game. I think it's absolutely brilliant.

Whilst not traditional point and click I quickly got used to using the arrow keys to interact and make selections.

It's the story that really makes it though, I found it to be immersive, creepy and memorable.

Another one like Kairo (which I also loved although it's very different to TCL), from an Indie developer that is worth every penny and not to be missed.

Wisewoman, thank you for your kind words about the game! I just wanted to let you and the folks know that it's now possible to get various deals or just individual items from Screen 7. The price of a DVD copy on its own has dropped.

Tomorrow (Tue Jan 8th) you may want to stock up on Cat Lady DVD's or other items because there will be big discounts all day! You'll find the info on the official website http://www.TheCatLady.co.uk and at http://www.Screen7.co.uk tomorrow.

You may even catch a free copy or two if you're lucky smile

We do appreciate everyone's interest in the game and all the kind words. Thanks to our customers we've been able to approach Steam and so I'd ask you to vote if you have a moment and would like the game to be available on Steam:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=114327732

Beyond that happy new year to everyone at Gameboomers and here using the forums. Enjoy it!

ML

and decided to get the DVD version of the game instead of watching more.

I've played quite a bit of The Cat Lady now.
I agree with ***Karla's review at JA***. Maybe not the A+ grade, but an A or A- with restricted recommendation due to the violent images.

The Cat Lady is not a typical horror game or a typical adventure.
It's violent in places, with themes of death, madness, dismemberment, and mutilation. Some of it takes place in the character's mind, some in her normal life, and some in a mysterious world in between life and death.

There is a lot of dialogue, and not that many puzzles other than figuring out where to go or what to do next.
But if you have an interest in psychological horror, it's a great game to play. It is a mature themed game for several reasons.

The disc version is DRM-free and you don't need the disc in the drive to play.

I hope you enjoy it, Mad. It will probably startle you in an unexpected way fairly early on. The voices and sound are very well done. The graphics may look primitive at first glance, but they actually work very well with the game.

It's not a point-and-click but it's not a 3D game either. You move with the Left and Right Arrow keys. You look closer at things with the Up Arrow (a picture of the Up Arrow appears on screen when there's something to look at). Labels pop up on screen when you're close enough to something to interact with it. You move to inventory with the Down Arrow, and move between items with the Left and Right Arrows. You move between conversation choices with the Up and Down Arrows. The Enter key selects objects in inventory or conversation choices.

Not everyone is going to enjoy the game because of the real and implied violence -- but it's not gratuitous. It's not a "fun" game, but it's one where the story and characters are so believable that you may find yourself thinking about them outside the game.

Hi Fellow Boomers. I just finished "The Cat Lady", at least it was only ONE of the endings. I will play through the alternate endings today. This is one of the most fascinating games I've ever played. The graphics and the sounds enhanced this exciting game. I think it was brilliant as to how this was made. I bought it from Desura as a download, and had absolutely NO issues with the installation and the actual playing of the game. I referred to MAG'S two chapter WT,and then relied on a transled WT that was originally in the Dutch language. HAPPY GAMING!

Hey sandy. wave I'm still playing, near the end of the game. So there are multiple endings? I wondered about that, does it depend on the different dialogue options you choose throughout the game?? And where are these walkthroughs you found? Because the only ones I've found are YouTube videos of the game, which are not at all good for the occasional nudge. smirk
