Let's Play Cat President, In Which Pictures Of Cats Run For President

In Cat President: A More Purrfect Union, an actual PC video game people can buy for $US9 ($11), an unemployed grocery store clerk guides the fate of the nation by choosing to act as campaign manager for one of six cat pictures. Vote Dr Nom-Noms. I'm sorry, did I just slip my own political opinion into what should be an unbiased appraisal of feline-powered politic? How unprofessional of me. What I meant to type was a more fair and balanced, "Don't vote for Frisky the cat-Lothario, Trump-derpaw, the wishy-washy Kale, a DJ or what's obviously a small dog."

Developed by Oh, a Rock! Studios, Cat President takes place 20 years after Congress banned all humans from politics, which seems like a smart move at this point. You play a young unemployed woman who stumbles her way backstage of a major presidential debate, right into the hearts of the six candidates, of whom Dr Nom-Noms is the only clear choice.

I only played a little over 15 minutes of Cat President, so I don't pretend to be an expert, but so far it feels like an accurate representation of the subject matter. There's a strong focus on story (over 350 pages of script boasts the Steam description), and a not very strong focus on visuals.

Here is the main character's best friend, Lizzy, superimposed over a picture of a park.

And here is Lizzy superimposed over a picture of a political debate.

Mind you the political debate arena seems to be a slightly modified picture from the VMworld 2015 conference. I'm sure it will be fine.

In closing, a vote for Dr Nom-Noms is a vote for the future of America. He's not fat with bad hair, a dog, a DJ, bland or predisposed towards sexually harassing his staff.

I named my character well.
