OverviewOverview

Where is Cat? is a collection of three hide-and-seek style puzzle games where you find various items scattered throughout the pictures. Each place you look for items in is hand-drawn by children, and the items are often difficult to find without a close inspection. The game consists of three short mini-games; Where is Cat? Cat in Japan and Christmas Cat. It's a simple yet fun and rewarding entryway into video games for young children.

In Where is Cat? you look through the rooms of a house for the black cat, sometimes only being able to see a very small part of him, then look through the same rooms for plates, cups and food. Each item is more difficult to find than the last, and often requires you to open drawers, look in cupboards and more.

In Cat in Japan, you look around Japanese-inspired locations for 20 sushi. This one is slightly more involved, with keys found on one screen allowing you to open doors on others, but the gameplay is fundamentally the same.

In Christmas Cat, you look for 20 small red baubles strewn across a festive house. Again, the gameplay is largely the same, but the festive setting adds a different spin on things.

The result is a short, simple and novel way for young children to engage with video games, with each game offering a different tone and twist on the formula.
