Description

Note: To unlock internet multiplayer, please play a round of singleplayer first (either AI or two player).

 

Kyle The Kitty Is Snoozing!

You only have one shot at this - you're going to get in there and smoosh that cat's tummy before he wakes up and scratches your eyes out.

Rubbing a kitty's belly is risky business. Do you know how soft and fluffy a cat's tummy is? Of course not, Kyle is very grumpy and protects himself... but you have to know.

This simple arcade game combines mankind's two loves: small, soft animals and electronic entertainment.

. Marvel at the "realistic" catsynth sound effects

. Practice for the coming war betwixt Man and Machine by playing against fiendish AI

. Chortle with glee as you win the tenth internet game in a row

. Chair dance to the smooth Bossa Nova grooves

. Laugh in your sibling's face as you beat them in local multiplayer

. Scream in frustration as a rubber duck messes up your flawless game

 

Controls are shown in-game and are customiseable. Music and sound volumes can be adjusted in-game too. Internet multiplayer does not require port forwarding but you do have to play a singleplayer game first. Online interactions are not rated by ESRB, nor is the rest of the game for that matter.

If you're a Mac user and you're having problems with the package, please check out YoYoGames' advice here (and if that doesn't work, try "sudo xattr"!).

    Super cute, well made game! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the games from the GM48, if you’d like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/RxB8WIjpWF0

    Great and cute game. Cats are always plus :)

    Haven´t seen anything like this before, so it was great to play. Feels that many parts of the game are done with care. Maybe mostly because of the "big team", so everyone did their part. I love it.

    Cute game, with a very interesting use of the theme. The gameplay is pretty unique, but I'm awful at at it. I tried multiple times and could never manage to beat the AI. I didn't get to try the online multiplayer but it's impressive that such a thing is included.

    It overall feels super polished. The graphics look good, the animations are smooth, the music is nice and the cat sounds are great. You even included an extensive options screen! I wish there was an AI difficulty option, though. As mentioned, I'm pretty terrible.

      I had considered recommending the team AI difficulty but I decided against it because with the amount of work that had to go into online, I was afraid we wouldn't have enough time. Thank you for playing our game!

    The menus seem to be really polished. The actual game seems like it is sort of a take on bowling. You lock in your position and then select the power of the shot. I just wish there was a little better indication of where I am supposed to be aiming. Some additional mechanics would make it a more engaging experience.

    This was a very polished experience and pleasant to play. The cat sounds were very convincing.

    Not a big fan of how the game plays, but everything else is very impressive. The music was particularly excellent.

    Also, big +1 for the good options menu :D

    The theme feels kinda shoehorned in though :(

    Great game! Amazing visuals and sound, really shows the amazing work put into this, the controls are simple but yet nice to work around is just an amazing piece of work. Well done guys! BTW why wasn't a pug instead of a cat here? XD

      There was a temporary stage in design when we had considered making it a pug but it didn't really fit the theme seeing as a pug wouldn't care even a little bit if you pet his tummy. Thanks for playing our game!

    Pretty amazing polish! Pretty nice how the game has also online features! The game feels right and has no flaws! Except maybe that color wheel. Wasn't sure how it worked, colors were a bit confusing. I see now in the comments how it works but it really wasn't obvious in the game (maybe there should have been more defined colors and less of them)

    Insanely good game, really polished and I'm blown away by the fact that you managed to implement multiplayer and AI in 48 hours, the only bad part about it is honestly just the confusing controls and the colored wheel, but once you get how that works this game becomes really addictive and fun to play. Also incredible art and sounds, but I didn't expect anything else from a team like this :D

    What a great team, the game is really polished. I loved the cat sounds!
    I just didn't get the spinning wheel, I think I always started with 10000 and didn't get to notice any change in initial speed.
    Damn the A.I. just keeps beating me hahaha, but I managed to rub the cat's belly at least once T-T

      Thank you so much, Siridakis! We tried a number of different iterations for the wheel, and the colors used were always a bit confused or uneasy on the eyes; we ended up on this one, which goes from white/yellow, which is to weak, to green, which is ideal, to orange and red, which is too strong.

    This game is wonderful! First of all, the super cute music and graphics make for a relaxing atmosphere, and while the gameplay might be simple, it feels very solid. I played multiplayer with some nice people (I think it was one of the developers), and it was extremely fun! I won of course. ;)

      Thank you lots, Yilly! Congratz on the tummy rub ;)

    Damn, this is one polished game. Excellent work to everyone on the team - all areas are top notch. The artwork is very charming, and the sounds are on point, especially that cat purr. I'm really digging the groovy soundtrack too! And you got multiplayer implementation in the game?! In 48 hours?! I'm not worthy.

    From a gameplay perspective the game got a little repetitive after a few goes, but I guess that's where the multiplayer element comes into play! I can see this being a great little party game.

    This game was adorable! Also cats are the best! The music and art really stood out most to me. Really top notch stuff. The gameplay took me a couple tries to get used to but after that it was pretty smooth. Nice job!

    Nice art, i think the game would be more fun if the hand was controlled with the mouse

    • thirteen thirteen

      Thanks for the compliment! I feel like the dynamic with the mouse wouldn't be ideal since you lose effectiveness of controlling the hand as it slides, and you feel non-responsive or laggy, where keys you can just try to smash them, but that's my view on it.

    Thoroughly brilliant! Everything displays top-notch craftsmanship from the concept to the code, art, sound design, everything. I thought I had the gist of the game from the screenshots but the multiplayer nature and board-game style play surprised and enthralled me.

    I like the theme music. It's comforting and ambient. Even though I had a glitch with a local multiplayer game, implementing that in two days is remarkable!
