AGS Panel Rating

The Cat Lady is an exceptionally powerful game. It's unlike anything else you'll find among its adventure game peers, and will move you in ways few other games can hope to do.

That said, it's not a game for everyone. Many traditional players may find the plot overly emotional, the imagery too harsh and the game world hard to navigate. Characters sprites are crudely drawn against photo-montage backgrounds, and can only move sideways. Symbolism in TCL isn't subtle or suggestive; it's graphical and in your face.

Outside of the AGS community, TCL has garnered an unprecedented fan following.

Susan Ashworth, known in her neighbourhood as the crazy Cat Lady, is a lonely 40-year old on the verge of suicide. She has no family, no friends and no hope for a better future. One day she discovers that five strangers will come along and change everything... But those five, "The Parasites", are also the most ruthless, deranged and cold-blooded bunch of psychopats the city has ever known. They will stop at nothing to hurt Susan. Unless, she hurts them first...

Great atmospheric.Great story.Great graphics.Great puzzles.Great immersion.And.... great GAME.
Congratulation Harvester games.

By TheBrainTrain on 6 Jul 2014
One of the best games I've played in a long time. The adult themes like suicide and murder were spot on. It also had some creepy parts and the graphics were great for the game.
I even bought the OST although this isn't my favourite style of music.

By Janos Biro on 20 Mar 2014
Great game, with great music.

By xlynx on 3 Mar 2014
Highly original adventure game. Amazing story, great puzzles, unlikely protagonist and very, very dark. The most awesome horror adventure out there.

Couldn't quite give it a full rating as the sprites are rather aliased and don't have the best animations - but this game is so good you'll not be bothered.

By The Last To Know on 29 Jan 2014
One of my favourite AGS games. Great atmosphere, interesting story and characters, nice graphics.
