ChatChat is an online multiplayer game by Terry Cavanagh, creator of VVVVVV. It's a highly intricate simulation involving deep-level behavioral algorithms and calculus-based — wait, no it isn't! It's about being a kitty! The wildest dream of every internet human has come true in this simple little game, giving you full permission to nap, purr, meow, and catch mice to your furry heart's content.
So what's the life of a cat like? Pretty much like you'd imagine. You have a handful of areas to explore, with territory ranging from an alley to the "mush room" and even a tree top. You'll come across little tip boxes from time to time, as well as plaques that broadcast your position when you step on them. There are even a few commands you can unleash from the chat box, including napping, meowing, screeching, and purring. Cat stuff, basically!
There's sort of a goal in ChatChat, which is to capture mice and bring them back to your doorstep, but it doesn't give you anything beyond points, which are about as useful as mittens for lobsters. You can also get turned into a dog, which functions sort of like a game of tag, adding a bit of craziness to the otherwise laid back social atmosphere. If you're looking for some time to kill and would like to pretend you're a cat, well, now you know where to go!
