The First Five Minutes Of Kitten Squad, PETA’s First Console Game

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have been web-based Flash games to spread its anti-animal cruelty message for years. Probably should have stuck with that.

Directed by Mecho Wars and Pocket God vs Desert Ashes director Luc Bernard, Kitten Squad is a game that I should have immediately fallen in love with based on name alone. Available today for free download on the PlayStation 4, the game is essentially The Binding of Issac meets the animal rights lobby meets really sloppy design.

There is no set-up. We go from menu screen to wide-eyed cat in a central hub filled with a trio of NPCs whose dialogue needed another read before going live. There are quests to take, but no indication how to solve them — just an animated cutscene about how horrible some people are.

Well now I’m disgusted and horrified. Let’s shoot some robots? I don’t even know.


  • I’m disgusted.
    Digital animals have the same rights as humans. I bet they don’t even make sure they have enough virtual water.
    Filthy hypocrites.

  • Apparently I’m not the only one bothered by the way PETA reacts to supposed animal cruelty in games is to make shitty parody games filled with EXTREME animal cruelty.
