You Can Call Me "The Cat Lady"

Well, not me in specific. Susan Ashworth is the woman you can append the typically unsavoury title. What's strange is that I can't stop thinking about this game. I literally cannot stop thinking about this game. It has some strong characters and language in there with some overhanging dark themes throughout.

In the very beginning of the game, we hear Susan's soft, charming tone speaking to us, but she's not just speaking. She's reading out her suicide letter before the world twists and turns and leaves us (and Susan) in a field of wheat.

I won't go into too much detail about the game, but it spans across different topics of death and human immorality. This game isn't for the squeamish as by no means spares the gore when it does appear. The game isn't without a message or motive, which you learn as you come across characters such as Liz, Mitzi, and even Brian, a dreaded, despicable man in Susan's apartment. Do I recommend this game? Yes, of course. I recommend that you play this game after playing Downfall. It will give something of back story to the current setting and helps understand a scene towards the end of The Cat Lady.

The Cat Lady was made by Screen 7, and this game is worth checking out if you absolutely can. You can go to the official website and buy the game for $9.99. There are also several areas to buy the game, such as Steam and Desura, so you don't have to worry. If you like The Cat Lady, be sure to give them your support, and you can even buy the DLC for it as well.

The Cat Lady is available for Windows PC and Mac. For Mac, you'll have to use Crossover 12.0 with OS X 10.8.2, so please be aware of that. If you do play the game, remember: tell 'em GDR sent ya, and enjoy.
