Create A More Purrfect Union In Cat President

New indie game asks the question of what it would be like if a cat ran the White House.

Cat President is an interesting indie title by developer Oh, a Rock! studios that recently released on Steam, and is holding the gaming world’s attention like a cat chasing a laser pointer. The game is part dating sim (reminiscent of Hatoful Boyfriend, the pigeon dating sim) and part… political novel?

Aesthetically the game can’t help but make you chuckle, yet when you get down to the nitty gritty of actually playing through Cat President, you’ll realize it has quite a bit more to offer than you’d expect upon first glance. There are six kitty candidates vying for the presidency, and to woo the heart of their young campaign manager (you). As you can tell, these cats have a lot on their plate!

As a player, you are tasked with tackling your kitty candidate’s political stance on issues anywhere from litter boxes to feline diseases (or perhaps placing a ban on those terrifying cucumbers). Each candidate is different and has their own unique storyline, so you can play through Cat President a multitude of times (there are 18 different endings).

Overall, we adore this strange political dating sim starring one of the internet’s favorite animals.
