A Girl & Her Cat

by little_polygon - 48 Hour Compo Entry

My take on "A Boy & His Dog" -- YOU JUST GET ONE CAT! Requires the unity web player for the browser version.

This is my first time doing the Solo Compo. I got a little too ambitious, but I'm still proud!!

this is really neat, i wish there was more to play because i really see the potential of it. love that the cat is key to completing the level but you also need to protect it. great idea! the graphics are really lovely too.

A Girl & Her Cat's color palette, hints, pixel animation, and audio are tight!

Not bad but too short =(
Very short. Incredible short. If theme was "Short game", you won =)
Audio, controls, visuals are well presented. I request for full version.

Love the pixel art and post-apocalyptic cattery. Hope you work on this some more, it's a great start, and the style is nice and clean. I also made a post-apocalyptic cat and ran out of time too.

Dec 23, 2013 @ 10:34pm

Wow, love it! The concept really has potential and the graphics are great! :)
Would love to see more of this!

I think you have every reason to be proud of your work. You did a great job! It's already fun to play. Only some levels are missing, then you have an awesome game.

Nice presentation...looking at the code as always interesting to see how people implement their ideas.
How long have you been scripting for and where would you say you learn/take influence on how to script for a problem...I thought the interface for carryable objects was a nice idea

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
