Sorry to here you didn't like the game, not that anyone cares, but they did make that game for free and a quick guess of your games list - there are probably much worse things you could had wasted your time on. :mad:

For some reason the video of the game reminded me of the Frankie Goes To Hollywood game on the C64.. :D

It's free, unless the game gave you a horrible disease there is pretty much nothing to dislike here. Especially since no one is forcing you to play it.

A documentary in game form about how American and British meddling in foreign affairs always stirs up ♥♥♥♥. The man was put out of office because he took away Britainīs precious oil.

(If you want to know what I mean by stirring up ♥♥♥♥ read up on Vietnam, Korea, The Taliban, The current not so sweet Irani President, several dictatorships across Africa, several more murderous dictators along the Mediterranean coast, the Palestine-Israel conflict though the British helped allot here, the list is endless).

Yeah I know. Letting millions of innocent people get murdered in Rwanda was a much better option. Way to go!

I would, usually, agree with you. Rwanda's problem was because of the incident in Somalia, that made Clinton stay home.... In both cases, I believe, the so called first world believed to be doing the best they could. In both cases, doing different things, interfering and not, they didn't succeed very well. Sometimes there are more than just a mere public interest... Sometimes there are private interests in the game... But in most of the cases - the ones that go wrong listed above -, I believe, they are doing their best.

the game has no intense detailed 3D graphics, right? it runs like a powerpoint presentation on my machine...

I'm yet to play it but it looks like a very thought provoking and interesting game... and it's free too! :D

Also, I had absolutely no idea that Iran had had a democratically elected prime minister. :eek:

Thanks!

Just out of interest is it swapping one biased perspective of events for another or giving the user to critically think about the events in progress.

The game was surprisingly powerful for me. Made me think and want to research a bit more on it.

I liked it, the art was wonderful and the soundtrack fit well. Plus it was just the right length for this sort of thing.

Indeed, the game was pretty darn amazing.
I loved the art style, and the metaphores they used, it`s definetly a game everyone should experience. Heck, I`d even pay a couple of bucks for it, as a donation for the guys who made it.

At first I was a little skeptical, I thought it`s another biased game which will twist the truth, but I really enjoyed it, and it seems pretty accurate, atleast by Wikipedia ^^

I rarely post in the forums but I just wanted to add to this and say that I wish more games like this were developed. Fun, thought provoking, and educational! To the makers of the Cat and the Coup, great work and I'm interested to know what other games you'll make in the future!

Nobody is ashamed that the CIA deposed a progressive, democratically elected leader for their own economic benefit, leading to Iran's resentment of America for generations to come? I sure as hell am. What a clever way to draw people's attention to such an important event.

Bit interactive and informative.

If that's all the game teaches about this episode in international intrigue and Persian politics, it has failed as an informative IR tool.

However, I'll give it a pass since it's about a kitty cat.

Strange choice for Steam but commendable nonetheless. If it's accurate that is. Not trusting that fountain of faeces Wikipedia are there any experts that could validate it?

amcdermo, Wikipedia actually dictates what is commonly agreed between historians and has been backed by declassified US government files in the 90s. You can discuss Dr. Mosaddegh and the US Government motives and how these events influenced the 1979 revolution, but the CIA/MI6 operation and involvement in the coup d'état is beyond reasonable doubt and not a secret at all nowadays.
And no, I'm in no way an expert but I did study this is school when I was a teenager.
Anyway if you're really interested, here's the declassified stuff on Operation Ajax (http://wearechangecoloradosprings.org/docs.php).

After you finish the 15 minute "game", in the credits are sources as to where the information came from.
I've researched the topic on my own for school several years ago and there was nothing presented in the game that seemed false or anything of the sort.

**I wouldn't consider myself an expert, however what the US government did in Iran isn't the only time the US has removed democratically elected progressive leaders and put in dictators in charge. It's an embarrassment for this country and for what we supposedly stand for.

These are your only comments about this game. Your disdain for Americans isn't well hidden and you complain about trolls?

It's a rather odd game.
On its "videogame-side" I'd say that the artwork is quite nice, but the animations are a bit lacking, especially if you try to sway away from the path and the game forces you back in place through obstacles.
The puzzles are interesting but easy. I was expecting a difficulty escalation and ended up disappointed when I realised it was already over.
Also, if the claim it requires 2 GBs of RAM is true, there is something highly inefficient somewhere in the code.

The history part is presented factually, with short descriptions of what happened in relation to the dates, and tied in with several allegoric images.

Overall, it's a nice game-documentary, free, and certainly worth 10 minutes of your time.

Don't take it personal. Flaunting how historically ignorant and insensitive you are is a common trait for the "AMERICA ♥♥♥♥ YEAH" troll.

No, it wasn't just about oil. Look at how Iran back Germany in WW2. Or how Mossadegh supported the Soviets and was being supported by them.

Let's just ignore the Soviet involvement in Africa, Iron Curtain, Cambodia, Vietnam, Middle east, Laos, etc. Western involvement was trying to stop the imperialism of the communist governments who had no problems creating mass murder far beyond the ♥♥♥♥♥ (also left wingers) to justify their sophistry. Stop blaming the west while you use your capitalist created computers.

Typical young, spoiled, western liberal with no life experience.

The west was disliked long before this. I'm quite proud the CIA/MI5/MI6 undermined someone who was backed by the USSR.

Funny how all those America haters never know about the Czechoslovak rebellion of 68, Katyn, etc. all perpetrated by the logical conclusion of their "ideology."

do you really have to make this about liberal vs. conservative? Typical red herring, completely judgmental response from someone who can't engage in civil discussion even on the internet. nice try with the "life experience" angle though, I bet you feel like a big man bragging about your life experience on Steam forums.

So you're saying American crimes are acceptable because the Soviets are just as bad? Typical deflection nonsense. Eisenhower also did the same to Guatemala because their president nationalized United Fruit, and ended up finding no Soviet connections. Let's not forget how America did blindly support several brutal right-wing dictatorships across the global to fight the Soviet boogeyman.
