Overview

12692




WHO WAS THE CAT? is the spectacular debut of the TELEPATH art collective! Taking influence from such games as Alien Soldier, Stretch Panic and even a little bit of Devil May Cry, WHO WAS THE CAT? an old school fast-paced action run-and-gun with a strong emphasis on boss battles!

Play as Milo the purple one-eyed cat and face off against tough foes that put your dodging and shooting skills to the ultimate test!

The 2021 SAGE Demo lets you face off against one of the planned four bosses. Can you play well enough to obtain the elusive S RANK?

A TELEPATH GAME

Latest reviews

This is certainly the most experimental shooter I've seen in SAGE for the past 3 years

pros;

-it's got that abstract style [if you're looking for inspiration I recommend the bizarre worlds of pullei magika madoka]
-funky music with great sound design
-my controller fingers thank you for adding auto shoot mode
-the 3d animation texts before the boss battle is really cool

improvements;
-a binding buttons feature since I get dodge dash and jump confused during moon boss.
-more abstract backgrounds and bosses, the more the better, even use effects on sounds such as reverse, reverb, echo, speed and pitch shift. Audacity is great for that kind of thing.

Overall Please make more of this game! you have such potential and you should keep going further with it!

try again softlocks the game

both options do that
uh oh, sorry about that, that's a nasty bug. I think it's because hitting the start/pause button causes the game to unpause and locks it. I can fix it and upload a new version in just a bit
 
This game was so fun! Got an S rank, and found the little secret! ;) I'm now legit super invested, can't wait to see more!!

My only small critic is that I think the BG doesn't really match the style of the rest of the game and feels a bit generic! But other than that everything feels and looks great!
