AGS Panel Review
"The Cat Lady is an exceptionally powerful game. It's unlike anything else you'll find among its adventure game peers, and will move you in ways few other games can hope to do.
That said, it's not a game for everyone. Many traditional players may find the plot overly emotional, the imagery too harsh and the game world hard to navigate. Characters sprites are crudely drawn against photo-montage backgrounds, and can only move sideways. Symbolism in TCL isn't subtle or suggestive; it's graphical and in your face.
Outside of the AGS community, TCL has garnered an unprecedented fan following."

Congratulation Harvester games.
I even bought the OST although this isn't my favourite style of music.
Couldn't quite give it a full rating as the sprites are rather aliased and don't have the best animations - but this game is so good you'll not be bothered.
surely is a good game.
That's one of the most interesting and enjoyable story found in AGS games, and no matter how much I try, I can't remember a game which would have such a level of immersion.
Cat Lady is a horror, but an unusual one, it has certain... flavor, which is very difficult to describe.
I don't want to give too much spoilers here, but the general feature of the game is that Susan, the main character, is given a role of judge, rather than a victim. As soon as you realize this, the game becomes more a surrealistic drama, rather than a slasher. You are not surviving, you are contemplating.
Perhaps, this is personal way of seeing, I but found the game melancholic and thoughtful, and almost not scary, in the usual sense. After all, this is not a story of fantastic monsters from other world, it is a story of human monsters, of all possible kinds.
