Following the passing of Bernard Mason, the patriarch of the family, all the remaining Masons return to their childhood home for one last time. As Aspen, the cat of the household, players will take a journey across the hopes, disappointments and regrets of the enigmatic Mason family, traversing through a rich narrative that spans over decades. The game embraces a simple yet intuitive point and click play style, celebrating a design approach based on the behaviours of common house cats living all around the world. Is the cat just a pet, or does this creature play a more mysterious role in our lives? Be a charming but ordinary house cat. Aspen is neither the witty talking cat nor a supernatural creature. Play as the domestic cat of the Mason household. Unravel the decades-spanning story of the Mason Family by witnessing the relations of the surviving family members and tracking ghosts of the past. Explore the mysterious Mason Manor to every nook and cranny in beautiful 2D pixel art supported by modern cinematic lighting.
Experience gameplay sequences inspired by naturalistic cat behaviour. Track the scents of different family members throughout the house or cause total mischief in an already tense dinner – as any proper house cat would do! Start as the silent witness and eventually become a force of change in the lives of the family members throughout the three chapters of the game. Story is satisfying. Npc dialogues are not short. They’ll give you the extra dialogues if you hang around more and you will learn more. Roots of unnatural mysteries and eeriness of the Mason Family comes from very human and natural problems. Seeing these “human problems” through Aspen the cat’s eyes; making you soul search sometimes through the game. This is the most charming game I’ve ever played. Let’s just say that if you’ve ever been fortunate enough to raise a cat and unfortunate enough to have had truly bad life experiences during his lifetime, this game will hit you with the force of ten thousand bricks.
Gameplay-wise, it’s not much more than a very easy graphic adventure game with a few twists. Where the game truly, veritably, indubitably shines is the story, which is frankly better than 99% of the media consumed today. I can’t praise the devs enough for the story. Cultic Games understands people and what makes people go good and bad. Play the game. From the creators of Stygian, a purrfect 2D adventure game, I’m still at the beginning and update my review when I complete the game. But so far it’s absolutely gorgeous, there are small differences from its demo version so dont think that replayability is an issue for first chapter of game.
