No Time To Play

Catch That Cat

Catch That Cat is a small, easy text adventure that tries to have some retro sensibilities while doing away with the typical old-school annoyances. It started life as the demo game for the Jaiffa library, and can still be played in that edition. However, this one is recommended if you want to actually play as opposed to learning about the innards of text adventure engines.

For the record, the apartment in the game is not mine, though it does exist in reality (minus some details). The cat’s by and large fictional, though.

As of March 2013 there is also an Alan 3 port.

If you don’t know how to play, be sure to type INSTRUCTIONS at the prompt.
