Here’s a popular cat game from a few years ago that flew under our radar: Cats are Liquid. Yes, the title of the game is a statement on the fact that cats can pretty much fit in the narrowest of places. Like water. Soft, fluffy, water. And so, Cats are Liquid isn’t really a cat game per se but the main character is a cat, and you have to maneuver him/her/it through different rooms and worlds that become more and more perilous as you advance through the game.
The controls are simple: left and right to move, up to climb and down to squish. Pressing down will flatten and spread out the cat (not unlike, you know, liquid) so that it’ll fit through some nook or cranny This is the charm of the game because it’s well executed and very, very pleasing to look at. That behavior along with the ingenious array of levels to figure out (and strange xylophone-like music) makes Cats are Liquid a fun and engaging game.
But wait, there’s more! As you play through the 90 levels of Cats are Liquid, a story unfolds as you come across text-based prompts and phrases. Who is this cat? Where did it come from? Who does it belong to? Does it belong to anyone? So many questions and there’s no guarantee that any of them will be answered. Enjoy.
