The Cat Lady contains strong adult themes and is recommended only for players over 18.
The Cat Lady is a psychological horror graphic adventure game developed by Remigiusz Michalski, released on December 2012.
The Cat Lady is a critically acclaimed horror adventure game by designer R. Michalski (Author of Downfall, 2009). A gripping story, pumping soundtrack, high-resolution artwork and voice acting will engross you on your journey through the strange and often terrifying world of The Cat Lady. 3 years in the making, it's an adventure not to be missed!
The protagonist is Susan Ashworth, a chronically depressed, middle-aged woman with no friends. Her only companions are stray cats, whom she summons to her flat by playing her piano. She is known in her neighborhood as the cat lady. One night, Susan decides to take her own life, but this leads her to explore a strange place in death where she encounters the Queen of Maggots, who makes her immortal and gives her the task of ridding the world of five psychopaths referred to as the "parasites." Susan then returns to the world of the living to wake up in a hospital bed, and is soon forced to carry out her task. During this, she meets Mitzi, a cancer patient willing to be her new roommate. The game deals with mature themes such as depression, suicide, murder, and cancer, but also provides moments of humour and hope. The ending of the game is slightly modified based on player's choices.
