Roam the environment high and low, defending yourself against unforeseen threats and solving the mysteries of this unwelcome place inhabited by curious droids and dangerous creatures.
See the world through the eyes of a cat and interact with the environment in a playful way. Be stealthy, nimble, silly and sometimes as annoying as possible with the strange denizens of this mysterious world.
Along the way, the cat befriends a small flying drone known only as the B-12. With the help of this new companion, the duo must find a way out.”
“This game is all about what makes us human, and there are no humans in it.” Narrated Robert Baird, Co-Head of Annapurna Animation EW. “It’s a buddy comedy about a cat and a robot and the dynamic is so hilarious. So there’s a certain comedy to it, but there’s not a single human in this film. I think that’s one of the reasons the game was incredibly popular, because you see the world from an adorable cat’s point of view. How did you do it and how are you doing? We will you be able to do that in the movie? We willeven if it feels impossible at times, we know that this is the essence of the game and the key to telling the story.”
