Developer Will Herring has blessed the earth with My Garbage Cat Wakes Me Up At 3AM Every Day, a simulator that puts you at the controls of a feline in the same room as its human victim, who happens to be asleep. It’s your job to recreate the same chaos that is happening in millions and perhaps billions of households around the world each night.
Unlike trying to understand the motives of a cat, the controls and aim of the game are delightfully simple:
Knock everything over until your owner wakes up.
Use the arrow keys to move and jump.
Press Z to meow and cry all the time.
Press X to knead with your dumb little paws.
Do your worst.
Winning in this game means your human being awoken at 3AM, and the prize is his agony and sadness.
