New Video Game Will Let Players Explore a Dystopian City as a Cat


An upcoming game titled HK will give players the opportunity to explore a futuristic city, all while playing from the perspective of a cat, Nerdist reports.

The team behind the game (which is apparently composed of “two humans and two cats”) first announced they were working on a cat adventure video game back in October. The project is still in the early stages of development, but the team did share a Q&A on their blog that shed more light on the world your kitty character will get to navigate.

The game is set in an urban landscape in an “indefinite period” sometime in the future. The dystopian city where it takes place is partly inspired by Kowloon Walled City, a densely populated settlement that stood in Hong Kong before it was demolished in the early 1990s.

HK won’t be the first game that invites players to see the world from a cat’s point of view. In June, a VR update was released for Catlateral Damage, a game that rewards players for making their feline character knock over as many household items as possible. There’s still no word on whether climbing into boxes or tearing up furniture will be factored into the gameplay of this newest title. According to the creators, it may be years before it’s ready to be played, but you can get an idea of what to look forward to in the video clip above.
