Being interested in politics is an exhausting affair. There’s really no perfect scenario for most people, and the way the world is at the moment can be incredibly stressful for some people. Have you ever wondered if we’re even the right things to be in charge? What if we gave power to something other than human beings? Well, that’s basically the basis of the world in Cat President 2, because humans have become so corrupt that they’ve been banned from office, and that means that talking cats are the only choice left.
I’m going to be honest, at this point, I’d probably support doing this in the real world. Presumably, the cats are somehow beacons of righteousness and purity, incorruptible in a world that is broken. Maybe that’s what we need. Anyway, the game itself is a visual novel set in this utopian world, and you’ll get the chance to meet the six cats up for election, and maybe even pet them?
Alongside getting to talk to the cats themselves, this sequel boasts 25% more cat puns than the original game, which sounds like a lot, and even has 20 different endings. Sure, it’s an absurd prospect for a game, but let’s be honest, escapism is good and this all sounds pretty great. If you’re sat there thinking about how you can get involved in this feline revolution. Purrhaps these ideas have given you paws for thought and your ant change right meow? Well, you’ll be happy to know that Cat President 2: Purrlitical Revolution is out on October 13th on Steam.
