So, I’ve just finished the demo for Catherine, and I adored it. I’m not usually the biggest fan of Japanese games, but this was fun! It was a puzzle game that had an interesting storyline to it about a man who has issues with marriage and his long-time girlfriend Katherine. Then, he gets blindsided by a gorgeous lady named Catherine who wants him, and tries to get him to leave his super successful and hot girlfriend for her.
When I put this in I wasn’t expecting it to have a story at all. I thought it was just a puzzle game, so I was pleasantly surprised. I like the addition of all of the other humans in the dream world being sheep. I thought it was a funny and ironic change. It’s a survival/horror/RPG kind of story, and it was actually pretty fun!
Anyway, the story opens up in the Nightmare world, where you have to move objects in order to escape some unknown monster at the bottom of the screen who will destroy everything until it kills you. It gives you a quick tutorial on how to do everything and then throws you right into the storyline. When you wake up from your dream you’ve gone to lunch with your girlfriend (Katherine) who seems to be hinting that she wants to get married and is sick of you dicking around. You go out to dinner with your buds, who are of no help, and you drink and text your lady until its time for bed. It throws you back into Nightmare world, where shit has really gotten out of hand. It became a much more difficult game all of a sudden, and now you’re dodging the claws of your girlfriend (who is wielding a fork and will stab you with it if she can catch you) and running to the top of the screen. Once you make it out of there alive it gives a little bit of a preview of the storyline that you can expect and then hits the title screen again.
I thought it was good, and I’m going to go start looking at prices of it on half.com to grab me a copy!
