Catherine Craziness Coming

There’s been a lot of FPS-love floating around Grig Towers of late – so now for something completely different. And we mean completely different.

Catherine is a “relationship horror” – an exploration of fidelity that sees you guiding lead man, Vincent as he plunges into the moral morasse of a fiendish love triangle. Does he stick with his loving, but increasingly demanding lady-friend Katherine, or plunge into the exciting world of the temptress, Catherine? As the game progresses, Vincent’s guilt grows and starts to leak into his dreams, manifesting as horribly disfigured monsters and a ticking clock. You make his choices and evade his horrors in a highly stylized concept piece based around “intense, terror-filled gameplay”.

Yep, OK, we’ve no idea what any of that means either, but with direction from Katsura Hashino, and lush character art from Shigenori Soejima, it’s certainly shaping up as pretty goddamn exciting. I’m thinking Snatcher and all that mid-90s Konami madness. Scheduled for summer release on Xbox 360 and PS3 through Atlus USA, stay tuned to the Grig for all the latest…

    I been keeping an eye on this one, looks interesting. I kinda got put off by some of the gameplay videos that are kicking around – the block puzzle sort of bits, hope it’s gonna get a bit better than that! Still, if it sucks it might not be a big loss coz the chances of a Euro release may be slim – I seem to remember reading it was a close run thing for even getting a U.S one. Hope things work out for the best though, it would be cool to get a good game in this style!

    nope, north America only for now… Why Europe wouldn’t get it though is a weird one – I’d have thought we’d “get it” more than the states…

    Yeah but as usual, (sort of) in the words of the great Jerry Reed, they get the goldmine, we get the shaft.

      thats some good grigorig opacity there benny. haha,
      jerry reed is a legend, obviously not quite the legend as the bandit. Think you played that song, rings a bell.
      As for the release in the uk, i’m thinkin i heard that it was likely to come to uk, i may be getting confused with the meat boy not coming to mac, but now coming to mac thing. And then there’s the ubisoft game that i dont think i ever thought would come out here, so not getting confused with that. Maybe there was somethign else. hmmm.

        That’s a good bit of reasoning there buddy boy – I also heard about these flying pigs. Er, except it might be this plane someone was telling me about that was doing the flying. Or this thing someone thought was a plane, and wasn’t, but then was.


        And I’m liking that transparency big p – alpha 120. You know it makes sense!
