This very short game has a peculiar background. A few months ago I was approached by someone called Angie to create a present for her boyfriend, Matt. Money being short, this was to be a combined Christmas, Valentine's Day and anniversary present. He was a fan of my games, especially the ones set in the Lands of Dream, so this could be a really special gift for him. Now, this isn't how I normally work, and there were other things I was supposed to be working on, but how can you say no to being part of something so sweet? So I said yes.

I thought a bit about what sort of game to make, until eventually it became clear to me that I needed to go back to Oddness Standing, the setting of The Book of Living Magic, and make a game about one of the most memorable characters from that town. Strangely enough, it probably ended up being the most personal game I've ever made.

How to play:

Use your mouse to click on things. That's really all there is to it. To have fun, play slowly and examine the details. Note: there used to be a mute button, but a cat ate it, so now there isn't one. Well, there is, but you wouldn't want to try and get it out again.

Beautiful. This game overall is perfect to me. It reminds me of the books I would read as a child. But I feel like one huge aspect is lost to most people. The fact that Screech's show literally makes you live a lifetime with him. You form a bond with him, and in the end it feels like you've been friends forever. And at the end, really got me. It's just perfect. The story by far exceeds any that I've read in years. This is magical. I sat for a good hour after playing this, just thinking. 5/5.

Cute, honest, thought-provoking, cat-loving, wonderful piece of art.

Thank you.

Wow. This made me think, and grin, and then bawl my eyes out. But I don't regret playing it for a minute, quite the opposite. This is a fun game and a beautiful message, even if the unavoidable truth stings.

SPOILER: Both a hurt and a beautiful balm for anyone who's ever loved a cat through their whole life.

I'm on the tear-jerked bandwagon.
Damn, I didn't even LIKE Screech before this game.
