The OST is not downloadable from the itch client on Windows.

Should be fixed now! I had accidentally marked the soundtrack as an executable and that's why it wasn't showing up.

Nice thank you.

A very interesting game, perhaps a little too repetitive but redeemed by its surprisingly dark ending and its tough last levels!

This is a neat little game. I thought I wouldn't finish it because it was a bit bland, but I started to get kind of hooked by the extra mechanics and abilities, and my curiosity about the narrative. It certainly took a much darker turn than I expected, and I honestly would've been really interested if the game had leaned into that more.

I also really enjoyed reading your thoughts about the game's development! I can see the thought you're putting into how different mechanics influence the player and their experience, and I think that's really cool.

haven't played but i had a cat once and i dont think it was liquid

 not cool this is false information and propaganda!!!!!!

Aaaaactually......

I needed a second game to fill out a video for my fledgling channel, and this one had already caught my eye because C A T S. I intended to capture around 20 minutes of footage to give myself around 10 minutes for my video and I played for 55 frickin' minutes straight. Choosing what to cut was a nightmare and took me the better part of six hours.

This game is spectacularly made, has absolutely gorgeous music, and great platforming mechanics combined with the cat's abilities. I'm looking forward to playing more of this one for a future video, because I did not expect to get so hooked, so easily.
I cannot recommend this game enough and it is well worth overpaying where Itch allows.

I saved the best game for last in this video, timestamp is 7:02

I was baited by the main character being a cat and now I feel emotions from a platforming game again, this is what people would call a 'hidden gem'.

Very interesting platformer. The story fascinated me even if I didn't understand 100% of it. The platforming was a bit short of perfect but had some very interesting ideas and I enjoyed it enough to finish it. Looking forward to playing the sequel and I hope the dev keeps making games, as this was great for what it was and they have the potential to make something genuinely fantastic.

8/10

Really fun!

I had a very good time with this game. HIghlly recommend.

Who knew that a platformer about a glowing, liquid cat could have such an ENVELOPING and engaging story?
