The Best Video Games With Cats

Cats play a relatively minor role in video games. Fortunately, there are some titles that give them a fair amount of attention. Let's check out how the industry portrays them.

Cats are doing well in indie games

Indie cats. A few of the games above are purely independent titles, and this is only a fraction of the available offer. If you like cats and indie games – you have a lot to choose from. However, as in other genres, here also many titles are, to put it mildly, average.

Below are some games worth checking out.

  2. Release year: 2015

  4. Average play time according to howlongtobeat.com: 10 hours
  5. Platform: PC

Cat Goes Fishing is an oldie but goodie, with nearly 200 people playing it every day. In this charming fishing simulator, we play the role of a cat following the path "from zero to hero."

Gato Roboto

  1. Cat role: A heroic cat saving the crew of the ship
  2. Release year: 2019
  3. Genre: metroidvania
  4. Average play time according to howlongtobeat.com: 3 hours
  5. Platforms: PC, Switch, Xbox One

Gato Roboto is a full-fledged retro game. We have pixel graphics, a spaceship, a mech, and hundreds of enemies to defeat. However, the main character sets this title apart from many similar games of the metroidvania genre – it's a cute kitten driving a killer mech. There are also stages in which it is necessary to leave the cockpit – then the player has to avoid combat and take advantage of the small size and high nimbleness of the main character.

The game offers monochrome graphics and a side-scroller view. We travel through a vast labyrinth of levels, where you can find additional equipment, hundreds of enemies, and come across demanding bosses.

  3. Genre: visual novel / dating simulator
  4. Average play time according to howlongtobeat.com:18×16 svg 1.5 hours

Purrfect Date is a quite an unusual game in which we can date one of six cats. However, this is not an ordinary dating simulator – it also has a plot that reveals the "great secret" hidden on Cat Island, where the game takes place. The whole thing is kept in a humorous convention, although not everyone will probably enjoy it all that much.
