Play As A Cat Abandoned By Her Owners In This Crime Thriller

Sometimes I look at my cat and wonder what on Earth could possibly be going through her head. As I write these words, in fact, she's curled up under my desk with a look of utter vacancy on her face.

Is she planning world domination? Wrestling with the ending of Inception? Or is she simply wondering when I'm going to get up and fill her bowl with fresh kibbles. I couldn't possibly say, for cats are entirely inscrutable creatures.

Thank goodness, then, for Copycat. This new indie game from first-time developing duo Kostia Liakhov and Sam Cable aims to explore the inner workings of the house cat through the lens of a crime thriller. Take a look at in action below!

"Copycat is a narrative-driven game that explores loneliness and belonging," reads the game's Steam description. "It follows the story of Dawn, a hell-no-to-home-brand, pampered indoor cat living her best nine lives - until she becomes the target of an elaborate plan when a jealous stray look-alike steals her place in the home."

Liakhov and Cable clearly have some lofty ambitions for Copycat, and it certainly looks like a genuinely interesting game. The duo have shared progress updates on the game and let fans know what they can expect through a series of developer vlogs, which I'd urge you to check out if you like the sound of the game.

Unsurprisingly for a game about a tiny feline, Copycat won't be big on action. Instead, it's a narrative-driven "reflective" experience in which players are encouraged to explore and see the world through Dawn's eyes as they make choices that progress the story.

Exactly how much freedom players will have remains to be seen, but Copycat is currently listed as "coming soon" on Steam if you want to add it to your Wishlist and find out. Liakhov and Cable describe it as a perfect "rainy afternoon" game, which could make it an ideal pick for the approaching winter.
