This Dark Fantasy Platformer Is Designed To Make You Feel Like A Cat

A Walk in the Dark is an action-platformer that’s designed to make you feel like a cat. Not only do you play as a cat, the game’s controls are designed to make you feel like one, according to the game’s developer. Here’s a trailer that gives one a good feel for the game:



A Walk in the Dark takes place in a dark fantasy world and features gravity inversion mechanics as part of its design. You’ll be able to run, jump and slide, encountering traps and strange creatures as you progress through stages.


The game has been out for several months now, but it popped up on Steam Greenlight this week, which does wonders for exposure. If you’re interested, you can read more about it here.

    I don’t care about the cat part, but the controls look pretty solid.

  • If by cat you mean their ability to seemingly defy physics ;)

    This looks like a fun game. I like the feel created by the stark black contrast. (And the font they used, which reminds me of a fairy tale.)

    So the cat is lured by the reaper-skeleton, and the girl chases after the cat? Eh, I’ve played sillier themed games, why not this one?

    This is like a fusion between Limbo and VVVVVV.
