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.
