Time to frolic with our fuzzy feline friends with this list of the best cute games for cat lovers!
As if kitties weren’t already cute enough, getting to interact with them in the digital world always seems to be just too cute for words. Whether they are just doing their usual dismissive thang with all that sass, or guiding you with the deep wisdoms of an unhindered stoic, cats always make for either a great addition to a game, or even the centerpiece of a grand adventure.
Here are some games that I have found that fall into that category, but also bring some extra cuteness to the table.
This project started with a love for magical girls, cats, and a want to create a game that’s light, pink, cute, fluffy, and feminine. It also incorporates everything that’s enjoyable from a simulation game like Animal Crossing (furniture, decorations) but the animals will not leave/die, the shop will never close and the crops will not rot. The objective of the game is to make the town’s cat café active and full of cuddly creatures again such as cats, deer, raccoons, dogs, turtles, red pandas, foxes and more!
