This week Neko Atsume VR was released in Japan. That's right, cat-collecting in VR. Understandably, folks are going gaga.

The last time I played mobile games with any regularity was all the way back in 2004. My phone had some kind of proto-Bejewelled game on it, and I used to while away the bus trip home from school inanely matching coloured gems. Before that, it was Snake (or even better, Snake 2!), but it wasn't long before the simple games and repetitive play lost my interest entirely.
The game about putting food out to attract stray cats is getting the live-action movie treatment in Japan. As long as the real cats receive adorable little X-shaped buttholes in post-production, how can a Neko Atsume movie possibly fail?
For those who have bought all the items and collected all the cats in Neko Atsume, there's a new cute cat collecting game doing the rounds: Kleptocats. The concept is similar, though reversed -- you have to use the in-game currency to buy cats, who then go out and steal collectibles for you. They bring you everything from books to toys to Pokeballs to... wait, is that a foetus?
