You can update The Cat Lady to version 1.3 and now enjoy the game with English (audio and subtitles) French, German or Spanish (subtitles only). Please note save games from the previous version (1.2) are NOT compatible.

The Cat Lady is a dark, deep and engrossing adventure game by Harvester Games. It currently holds a MetaCritic score of 83%. The game won "Best Story" in the 2012 Adventure Gamers awards.

Buy a single copy of the game files here at Desura or visit for special deals that include DRM-free copies with activation keys (for Desura + Steam) included.

If you already own a copy, simply update to enjoy French, German & Spanish translations (language select can be accessed from the main menu in game). There are also some minor fixes to the save/load screen and bug fixes/typo corrections. The font is changed to accommodate multiple languages (and characters). We've also included a Vsync plugin to try and reduce screen tearing. No other changes have been made.

Thank you for playing The Cat Lady!

Hello, just to update you about the translation into Portuguese.
We have a team in Brazil called Gamer Tribe, they are responsible for bringing translations of games for the Portuguese language and are doing so with The Cat Lady.

The translation should be ready in March!

Thank you! and wait for a great translation!

Hello, you said you would look on a possible translation into Portuguese, have you looked for it?
I already have purchased your game and not played yet because I'm waiting for an answer.

Sorry for my bad english, thank you!

Hi there, it still seems extremely hard for us to do this. Can you recommend me a font that would work with Portuguese text & alphabet please? And I'll keep trying. Regards!

Hi there - Thanks for the explanation. Did you try the Advanced tab in winsetup.exe and then raise the RAM limit to 100mb?

Seems like the dev put up version 1.3.1 (take a look at the changelog when you right click the game in your list).
Installed and works fine for me :)

Not for me, unfortunately. :-(

I get an Adventure Games Studio crash after the load screen. Trying a reinstall.

Oh, I just saw the message about pre-1.3 saves, and I'm pretty sure I had an older version.

Ugh. All I can say is NEVER issue a patch like this (automated, where you can't post BIG warnings that players will have to start over) if that's the case.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm not quite sure what got put up by Desura there, but if it's working, that's a good thing. There's going to be another update soon, we've been able to re-include the original font if you play in English and hopefully also up the save limit by a lot. Any problems in the meantime let me know.

An astonishing game - I've never played anything else quite like it. While this game is very much about the story rather than the puzzles - although I've got to say I loved the combination lock - the tone and sheer imagination put into that story is almost peerless. There's very little that's nice or comforting about much of The Cat Lady, in fact it can be downright nasty in parts. And yet by turns it's also moving, touching and even on occasion shows a remarkably human sense of humour. But above…

Not much of a game here. I've just got done "playing" it for an hour, with my only interaction being pressing space as quickly as it would let me (which isn't very quickly at all given the long pauses between each line) to try to skip through endless, pointless conversations between the Cat Lady and some completely random seeming character that shows up and won't stop talking. Interminable, boring conversations between people I don't care about talking about things I don't care about with no interaction…
