Do you remember a cat that's been in such an early game?
We know that the cat was sent to space. Connected, monitorized, trapped in a tin can. A cat sent to die for the sake of science.
High on catnip his brain envisioned adventures of space discovery, intergalactic battles, heroes and glory.

But this is the final chapter of the Star Cats saga and the addiction to catnip is now out of control. Strung-out on heaven's high - hitting an all-time low - the little green wheels are following him.

Press start Z+X if you think you're ready to help our hero to face down his last and worst enemy.

* 1 player. Non-conventional gameplay. Includes glowing 8-bit 4-bit graphics, glam-chiptune music, sordid details and pictures of Japanese girls in synthesis.

  • left+right: turn

was this inspired by Ashes to Ashes by David Bowie? I recognise the lyrics


Like some cat from Japan, he could lick ’em by smiling. He could leave ’em to hang. Here came on so loaded man. well hung and snow white tan. 10/10 cat junkie


Oh I enjoyed the heck outta this one :3


This is such a cool, unique game! It's fun and trippy to play and has such a great style. Nice work.


Any hints on the 4 endings? :3

I can only get the "I'm happy" and "in a tin can" ones.


Try focusing on one type of "thing".

Nice! Got all of them! :D Thanks!
