So… Cat… Lateral. Catlateral. Like CO-llateral, but cat. Catlateral Damage. I don’t see what could possibly go wrong with a winning title like that, and honestly, I see a lot of potential in this one. So, fellow Cliqateers (Cliqers? Cliq-clacs.), what do we all know about cats? Why yes, that’s correct, they’re total butts and they love to destroy things. They use their adorable magic on us to lull us into a state of adorable-induced Stockholm’s Syndrome and proceed to destroy everything. The Kickstarter video is hilarious, if a bit cheesy, and it starts off the gameplay footage with, “This is you! You’re a cat!! … Go be a cat!”, and from there the gameplay footage is… Well, a pretty accurate representation of what it’d be like to be an asshole cat. (See: Most cats/all cats I’ve ever had.)


This game is apparently made by cats as well, and they are very easily enamored by bugs, but this Kickstarter has a lot of progress to show off, including a playable demo, so apparently cats are very apt game designers. Maybe a few of us should try their signature “stand on the keyboard until the game works” approach to game design. The graphics look nice, the idea is funny and simple, and so far, it looks like this team has a pretty functional game already made, so where do you come in?

catlateral2Well, Catlateral Damage needs a little push to slap on that shiny coat of polish, simple as that. If you’ve ever dreamed of destroying everything as an adorable little cat, this is the game for you, and unless Catlateral Damage can get this last little push, our dreams will be little more than that. Everything is procedurally generated, so you’ll never ruin the same room twice, so if you’d like to support this infinite marathon of carnage (catnage?), you can visit Kickstarter, play the demo, and learn a ton about the game.
