  • Summary: A beautiful game, the visuals, the art and the sound are all perfect and this game is still only in beta, the full release should see much needed bug improvements which I wait for with excitement. The game tells a tragic tale in which you spectate in the view of a cat. The controls are tight and even beginners shouldn't have any trouble with this game. A true classic which will be looked back on by generations to come. If anything this game is ahead of its time.

  • Summary: This is the best **** game ever, I have sunk over 1 hour into it, which is like a lot of play through, my best speed run is 3:56, I particularly like the two Nine Inch Nails songs in the closing credits. In short this is a must have game and it's brilliant. 10/10 you will regret your life decisions if you don't play this.

  • Summary: Upon opening this game you are immersed in it's rich artwork and soundtrack. The eloquent transitioning music set you up for the adventure of your lifetime as a cat in the Iranian military coup of the 50's. The cat controls well, the puzzles are intriguing; challenging even for a first time player and the story is interesting. 10/10 am now doing speed runs.

  • Summary: Pretentious indie "game" that tries to teach about the 1953 Iranian coup but is weighed down by symbolism. You are better off reading the wiki article about it because the developers assume the player knows the history of the event before playing which seems to negate the point of the game to me. Short, confusing, and not very fun, I'm not sure that this should be called a video game.

  • Summary: For the Art House gamer, The Cat and The Coup mixes political history, beautiful patchwork art design, and simple puzzle gameplay for a brief but memorable experience. Given that it's free to play on Steam, anyone interested in games as a platform for ideas ought to check it out.
