Get Meowt of here!

Plot:

This morning Jessica work up in an unfamiliar body. Or rather a very familiar body, that of her pet cat Clawdia. Can Jessicat find out the claws of her transformation and reverse the change, or will she be stuck eating kibble and chasing mice furever?

---

Characters:

Clawdia Jessicat:


Jessica went to sleep a person and awoke a feline, almost as if the heavens had finally decided to punish her overuse of cat puns. She's going to need more wits than cat puns to get out of this one though.

Jessica Clawdia:

Clawdia is Jessica's playful cat, she doesn't seem all that bothered about being stuck in a human body. Does she even realize she's not in her own body? Unfortunately, she's not very useful for doing human stuff and continues to act like a big hairless cat. But maybe there's a way to use her feline instincts to your advantage?

Veronica:


Jessica's housemate, she has a mild cat allergy and hates when Clawdia gets in her stuff, which of course in typical cat fashion is Clawdias favorite thing to do. But apart from that she's pretty friendly and gets along well with Jessica and her cat. She doesn't seem to be home at the moment though, I guess she won't be helping Jessica out much with her problem.

---

Overview:

The game will be a point and click adventure style visual novel.
Since I'm currently going solo on this one most of the art/music assets will likely be creative commons.
I'm not sure how long it's going to be, but it will probably be reasonably short.
My main goal is to get it finished in the month I have available, so we will see what I end up with at the end of it.

Content warning: May contain terrible cat puns. :3

I'm already amused. :^) I saw you post about this on Twitter, but only got a chance to pop onto your thread now. This looks like it'll be funny!

A little late but thanks for the positive comments. ^-^

Just a quick update in time for the last mad dash to the finish line. :3

The game is taking shape and now we're in the final stretch, so it's the big push to get it finished on time.

A few WIP screenshots from stages throughout the process:

Ended up deciding to go with SketchUp to do the backgrounds, as the customization needed to make a decent point and click game wouldn't really be possible with standard free backgrounds. Its involved a bit more work than I had anticipated, and they'll probably still look a little flat, at least for this version.

The guts of the programming is all in place, and the script is all planned out. But in true me fashion I've left all the writing to the end (there's no way that this will come back to haunt me, right?).
Oh and I should probably add some sounds/music at some point.

Ultimately I still hope to have a finished game at the end of the week, it just might be a little rough around the edges, so just got to push on for the last few days.

Wish me luck. ;3
