    I’m on the pic. That’s nice. (I’m catlicious! Well, not really)

    That sure was unexpectedly adorable. This has been the very first time I actually enjoyed myself around an MMO.

    Also, meow. :3

    so you look around for mice and bring them back to the house for points? is there any other mechanics or goals here? just wondering.

    Cunning!

  5. James Patton on January 28th, 2012

    This is the most brilliant and nonsensical idea for an MMO I’ve ever seen! XD

    doesn’t work, i have a kongregate account, but when i try to play it says: connection to the server. And then it says: Connection error. Any solution?

  7. Terry on January 28th, 2012

    gery: just try again later – let me know if it keeps happening

    This is a delight. Just showed someone one of the secrets without either of us saying a word.

    no idea what im doing some cat named rc is stalking me :(

    It appears I am the only person that figured out how to become a dog.
    Also music.

  11. Mark on January 30th, 2012

    Okay so I have found two secret areas, are there any more?

  12. timt5m on January 30th, 2012

    Man this game is beast!

  13. Leximancer on January 31st, 2012

    It was like a MMORPG but without any point. I must second the claim that in this case it makes for a more fun game.

    It’s about communicating without being straightforward, and to do stuff with no meaningful end in sight. In short, very much like being a cat. Or a gamer, I guess.

    Terry,

    You are a genius.

    Cheers,

    Hey, great game :) But I’m wondering – what did you use for “online” part of it? Flash p2p, smartfox, player.io?

    What a cute game…

  20. Ladyfox on February 2nd, 2012

    Any chance of this being ported to say an online service like Steam? I know it’s a web game but most of my friends play via Steam and trying to get them to setup a Kongregate account, well, let’s just say it went over like a fart in an elevator and leave it at that. -_-

    Thought the game was pretty pointless at first, but it actually really shows its personality when you play with other people who know what they are doing. Played a short game of tag cat-dog style that was surprisingly fun. I think the game has a lot of potential if you expand the content, but it would be okay as is too.

  23. jEN on February 3rd, 2012

    I’ve played for a few hours and had more fun than anticipated. With the right people, some really nice game dynamics can emerge.. like an extended game of catch or a 9-cat party in the tree :)

    There’s still a glitch though: If a cat gets turned into a dog while in the process of moving on the treestump, the dog gets stuck there – and there’s nothing the player can do except quit the game.

    Have you seen the comments for your game on kongregate these people have some pretty good ideas

  26. Jello on February 5th, 2012

    Umm… I have no idea how to move around in the game.

  27. jEN on February 6th, 2012

    I wish there was a way to deactivate the pause-on-losing-mouse focus screen.

  28. jEN on February 6th, 2012

    The game has already been hacked as well. There are a couple script kiddies who destroy levels and mess with the game (randomly become a dog, play music outside etc.)

  29. adam wolf on February 7th, 2012

    i like this a lot. i’d like to see the people messing it up and what they are doing.

    my cat plays this in real life but with squirrels on my doorstep instead of mice.

    cheers!

  30. ginny on February 17th, 2012

    There are two secret rooms I could find. One is the dog altar you can reach from the alley and one is the music room you can reach from the twisty cavern. Anyone know of any others?

  31. willrandship on February 27th, 2012

    You should have called it Nyan Chat :P

    Why not implement these multiplayer capabilities into VVVVVV. That would be great!

  34. Jaiin on April 12th, 2012

    Hey! I found out HOW and WHERE to be a dog, BUT you need a mouse. (: You need to go to the EAST SIDE OF THE ALLEY. There, in the far back, is a GARBAGE CAN BY THE WALL. Go UP ^ From that. You will enter THE DOG ALTER. Go IN FRONT OF THE DOG STATUE, and you will DROP THE MOUSE, turning into a dog.

  35. Anonymous on May 16th, 2012

    how do you become a dog

  36. Dmitry on June 3rd, 2012

    I found mice and bring it to the house.
    What else I cat do in the game?

  37. Emberpoppy on June 15th, 2012

    Chat is french for cat…

  38. Max on June 16th, 2012

    To be a dog…
    Find a mouse and go to the East side of the Alley. There should be a wall on the right side that has dots on it. You can walk on that. Keep walking forwards and then you will drop the mouse becoming a Dog.
    To be a cat…
    Drop a mouse at the house on the doormat.

  39. ermina on June 24th, 2012

    this game is ultimately great in all aspects.

  40. audre on July 27th, 2012

    how do you get into the music room???

  41. f on August 12th, 2012

    Description: A game about being a cat.
    Instructions: Be a cat.

    This is why it is a great game. It’s simple.
    Playing it with friends you already know from elsewhere is fun for hours, and there was never a point, so you don’t feel like you were “wasting time” – you were just having fun with your friends.

  42. keven on August 22nd, 2012

    i just love that game. vvvvvv is awesome

  52. El Dude on June 3rd, 2013

    This game rocks. I love how simple it is, yet there are hidden pieces in it…
    It would be great if there were extra maps. But overall I treasure this game.

  53. Kittyfox67 on December 30th, 2013
