Hi fellow Boomers. I just started to replay "The Cat Lady", and I am appreciating what a magnificent piece of work this game is. The ambiance is brilliant,and the story is chilling. The fact that I'm using Chrissie's walkthrough doesn't hurt, either. LOL

Hi Sanford, it's nice to know you might be finding my walkthrough useful! lol

But apart from that, I loved the game the first time around - it was so intensive but did appreciate it so much more the 2nd time & completely agree with what a magnificent piece of work the game is! thumbsup I loved the stylized artwork which I thought was brought alive by the wonderful voice acting.

I was dismayed to read comments amongst various reviews that the 'stress meter' because it featured in only 1 chapter made the game inconsistent - the reviewer obviously missed the point of the chapter as it was really only relevant in that one! Also disappointment with the ending???? I thought the ending
Click to reveal..
was a lovely conclusion!
Overall I found the game brilliantly thought out & constructed but do warn anyone that's thinking of playing it that it does contain some very sickening scenes!

Hi Chrissie,
I think that the "sickening parts" are what made this game unique. After all, this "ain't" a Nancy Drew game. LOL

I agree with you Sanford. The Cat Lady is a brilliant and creative story line which unfolds in a unique way. This is not just any adventure game, but an eerie, slow paced and involved examination of the human condition. Having said all that, I highly recommend it !
And thanks, Chrissie - I was stuck twice and had to resort to your walkthrough. smile
