Really lovely concept! I included it in a compilation video series of all of the games from the β€˜So Bad It’s Good’ Jam, if you’d like to take a look :)

This game is really well made!...Although honestly I'm not sure it was a very good idea to begin with. Sure, the cat is cute, but ultimately the whole thing is just an exercise of frustration. The platforming seems to involve big jumps that you really need to be careful on, but I can't really get past them before the cat jumps down...and ultimately it just started going to sleep over and over, so I guess the game is over now?

Don't get me wrong, I think it's cool that you made the game...because experimentation is good. You try out ideas and sometimes you find out they're bad, but that's all right. ;)

This game is absolutely ADORABLE! The music feels so relaxing, and the graphics are actually quite nice. But UGH, the cat just not listening to me and taking random naps are frustrating, so I haven't gotten it back to its bed yet. And it seems WAAY too bouncy at times, very neat little concept~

This game is too well done for this jam, it is a quality work. It is frustrating trying to control the cat, this fits the bad game idea xD

This is a good game with one super-frustrating mechanic. It just does not give me the impression of so bad it's good but rather the opposite: almost good but broken by one thing. It has really nice pixel art, decent music, tight controls and good presentation, marred by an overdone mechanic. I could see this as a legit indie title with that mechanic toned down.

I think this is spot on. The art is a-dor-able! I would like to see this as a bigger game.

Fantastic voice acting by Meowth!
