This game can be expanded much more! Potential is Huuuge! I can imagine a point system with days where cat must go to gym to get muscles (to dance less clamsy maybe), to make friends that may buy better shoes for advanced dances, to get better clothes that are sweat-takers etc. Mini gmae can also be expanded eg. to press arrows in right direction like in dance competition, to run away from a dog or to catch a mouse. Also, the cat may must work to get money to get to different competions in alien planets! It is very sad that no some competition existed in terms of percentage success that you must overpass. It was very short :( One of the best dancing games!
I love theme, graphics and nice converstations. Maybe for me It's so fast displaying texts and I lost in my first dance. It's a little complicate looking all screen with small arrows.. But I love it it very original!! Congratulations!! Remember me as Pony Island and Pokemon :)
I love this game! The designs of the environment and the characters are so cute, and I love the funny yet cynical dialogue and the amount of interactions there are with the environment. You've created a really cool universe and all of the tiny details about slave labor and catipalism are really interesting. One issue I noticed was that it simply did not register if more than 2 keys were being pressed at once, an issue I solved by pressing them very quickly in succession (perhaps this was intentional). Otherwise, no other problems, really cute game! :)
This is a great little game. The world is fun to explore. There’s lots to interact with in the short playtime. Text is funny and playful. The pixel art is full of charm. And the rhythm-based gameplay is super addictive. This musical adventure is much like its soundtrack – fresh, smooth, and frisky.
P.S. Here’s a 100% playthrough on YouTube. A breakdown of each dance can be found in the comments/description. Useful for when you reach the dance competition ;-)
This is the game of the year for me, honestly!
It was my gift and oh boy I'm the happiest XD
Incredibly smooth, full of wit and funny references, challenging yet forgiving...
In particular I enjoy the setting of space colony cat society, every character brings in a new and unique flavour which only adds to relaxing atmosphere with these eye-candy and hear-candy visuals and audio.
Gameplay tracks as they are, kind of bizarre fusion style, despite beat being clear and simple, are so much of fun to play through, with incredibly rewarding score system and funky moves in style of Mania games.
Animation quality is top notch and art shines in the little details there.
What can I else say as only that this is a wonderful experience which I didn't ever see as cool in my dreams as it is in the reality!
