Based on my album of the same name:The Game
The Cat And The Castle is the tale of a young starting adventuring Cat hearing word at a town's local tavern of a mystical castle only said to appear at midnight to those worthy of it's pursuit but none have ever returned from it's doors.
It is said to be home to a keeper whose heart no longer beats, but stories still rise from. When the Cat ventures out into the nearby deep woods, he comes to find when some rumors prove true, they're not always for the best. When an entire castle comes from the ground, the Cat has already begun their twisting journey through it's doors and into the hands of it's Keeper.
Pause 'menu/room' concept
Delving into the depths of this Castle, players will venture unto the mediums and perspectives of gamers defining ideals concerning adventure, and at the heart of it, exploring the philosophical pursuits of true meanings behind objective and curiosity. What cost is adventure worth? At the core level of gameplay, The Cat And The Castle is a 2-D explorative metroidvania Action/Adventure title with RPG based elements all cascaded between the ever twisting and changing walls of the castle that houses the game's main pursuit.
The rewards and temptations offered within the open hallways are various, and the doors you open are not always wha they seem. Study Rooms become forests, Kitchens become labyrinth of shadows and whispers, and bathrooms become vast oceans leading unto the dark depths far below.
All the while something is turning and clicking behind each and every wall and someone or something is helping it stay that way. What we hope to accomplish is a rewarding gaming experience that not only gives variety to each player's experience, but the will and choice that affects both their surrounding environments, and their understanding of consequence. Even the neutral path can make short an adventurer. What we need:
