FALL ARTS 2014 Chickens, cats, sharks, and sweet dance moves: fall's offbeat video games
The life of a cat seems easy, but this game will convince you otherwise. Cats have goals, dammit, and in Catlateral Damage you must knock over as many of your owner's possessions as you can within the time allotted. Look, a perfectly whole coffee mug! It's an obvious invitation for a swat of your paws. The satisfying crash signals gaming success. The demo, out now, features cel-shaded cartoon graphics à la Zelda: The Wind Waker, and your kitty avatar seems to be able to jump with super-feline prowess. But don't hiss over the small stuff, because you'll have too much fun swatting the big stuff, like that TV on the dresser.
Release: Fall/Winter 2014 (demo available now)
