Welcome, new Listener.


We are The Bureau, the investigative division of a big organization that puts order in the world.

About a month ago, we receive some unfortunate news about a crisis occurring in the city of Anthos.
It seems that there's an outbreak of an unknown disease the locals are calling The Silence.
Reports say that the disease slowly kills its victims and sometimes transforms them into horrible abominations.

Alongside it, a strange figure arrived with it.
And to make matters worse, the city has been radio-silent for the last weeks.
We can't estimate the total of deaths, because of the little of information we have on it at the moment.
You see, our informant from inside the city didn't return our recent contact.
Well, we can't have the surrounding communities panicking about this.

So, we need your assistance.

Your orders are to go to Anthos and locate our informant. Bring him back, or, in the worst case, bring back the information he has. While you're there, try to obtain the most of information you can gather.
Oh, and before you go,
Be careful of what you may see.
We don't know what's there, but,

We can guarantee that Anthos has seen better days.



The Game.


Dying Cat is a top-down, turned-based, grimdark, neo-noir RPG heavily themed around existentialism, theoretical psychology, perception of reality and the human condition, taking inspirations from games like Yume Nikki, LISA: The Painful, Spec Ops: The Line, Fallout, Bioshock: Infinite, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and many others. Its very essence is taken from the book The Plague, written by renamed philosopher Albert Camus.

Answering more questions.

Hello.

So, there are some more questions that people asked me about the game, so I'll be answering them now.

Is this a horror game?

I don't think this qualifies as a horror game by itself, but the game is largely inspired by those and it contains certain aspects such as body and cosmical horror.
The thing is, I didn't make Dying Cat with the intention of creating a horror game (like Purgatory or Mogeko Castle), but a grimdark roleplaying game that has horror elements in it.

Why it looks like the story changed from the last entries?

Because it has changed.
The original story didn't sit well with the RPG elements that I've planned for it, and lots of game mechanics that were made for that story in mind were severely unfriendly to players, so I changed the story to fit a more RPG perspective.
And I guess it worked.
Maybe I'll reserve that story for another game that isn't an RPG. Maybe.
But a lot of the original story remains in the new one, so it isn't entirely new.

Why are you using RTP and assets from Modern City?

Sadly I don't have any more money to hire people to make new tilesets and character sprites for me, so I'll do what I can with what I have.
I'm doing custom sprites and battlers by myself, but I'm not a good spriter nor an actual artist.

How's the game doing? Any estimates?

The game's doing fine. Slowly, but fine.
I don't believe I'll release it anytime soon, but I'll try to keep you guys informed about its status.

Will the game still be released on Steam when it comes out?

Unfortunately, not anymore.
The thing is I'm using a lot of assets that are not mine. Sprites, tiles, music, audio, and so on.
And Steam is really strict with the rule that it will not accept games with non-original or copyrighted material.
Oh well, not much I can do about that.

So, that's it for now.
Until next time.

Below the four screenshots, there are the game details (developer, engine, genre...), right? If in between the game details and screenshots aren't the words Hiatus or Cancelled, then you know that the game is probably still in production.
