Love trumps politics in Cat President ~A More Purrfect Union~, a visual novel/dating sim and yet another ridiculous game from the developer of A Stranger Comes Calling. In it, players are thrown into the life of a campaign manager who doesn’t know what she’s doing, but who’s been selected to help out on the campaign for six potential feline presidents after humans have been banned from all politics. Which kind of seems like a good idea lately.
After choosing a cat to back, you’ll be sucked into the whirlwind lives of their run for the presidency, and maybe get a little bit closer to these charismatic creatures, all drawn from real cats, along the way. Through an interactive narrative, will you choose to help Dr Nom Noms, DJ Nibbles, Thunderpaw, or the mysterious, somewhat-off Rover? Will you keep your head buried in this game to avoid the frightening nightmare that is real politics?
