I Want To Play This Game About Being A Cat In Hong Kong

I’m a dog person and I’d really like a good dog simulator.

But let’s be real here — it would be way more interesting to play a video game as a cat. Think about it.

Think about the crazy shit cats do. They’re crazy.

But this game is about more than just being a cat. This is about being a cat in Hong Kong. More specifically it’s about being a cat in Kowloon Walled City, a crazily populated area of Hong Kong that is pretty much ungoverned. That’s just an astonishingly interesting high concept for a video game.

And the best part: it looks pretty awesome so far.

But man, what a GIF.

Having a dig into the archives of that development blog it’s possible to get a rough idea of how the game will play.

Through videos like this:

And this:

This is apparently taken via Unreal Engine 4. It looks awesome.

I’m going to be keeping a close eye on this one as it develops. It doesn’t even have a proper name yet. It’s called HK Project at the moment. That’s it!
