Experience the Pain All Cat Owners Know in “My Garbage Cat Wakes Me Up at 3 AM Every Day”
If you’re the kind of person who craves realism in their video games, then look no further. My Garbage Cat Wakes Me Up At 3AM Every Day–no summary really needed–is the realest game that has ever or will ever be made. We’ve recommended a game that explores the pros of cat ownership, but everyone knows that cats have a dark side. A dark side that’s usually unleashed when you’re deep asleep and they’re hungry or lonely or just feel like throwing a temper tantrum.
In My Garbage Cat Wakes Me Up, you play as a small cat leaping all over the room. Knock things over to decrease your owner’s sleep meter and get him out of bed. When items hit the floor, they produce a loud crash that shave huge chunks of unconsciousness off. However, the game gives you the option to meow and knead your owner into wakefulness, a tactic that is less destructive but also incredibly, incredibly slow. If you want your owner up and moving, get destructive.
In that sense, My Garbage Cat Wakes Me Up displays a twisted genius. How many mornings have I wished my cat would just wait quietly and peacefully for me to wake up instead of frantically patting my face and headbutting my chin? How many times have I groaned and rolled over trying to ignore him, only to bolt upright when I hear the sound of him landing on the desk? And how long did it take me to give up gentle tactics and start gleefully destroying everything around the room? My Garbage Cat Wakes Me Up reminds us all that great Nietschzean truth: that he who fights monsters may become one…
Just kidding, it’s a game about a cat knocking stuff over. Go play it.
