In this game, you have to find a way to get your cat down from a tree.

What's the worst that could happen?

*Now updated with sound!!!*

This is a work in progress for My First Game Jam: Winter 2017 and is a prototype of game systems for future projects. It is also my first game done with PICO-8. Please let me know what you think in the comments below, particularly if you find any bugs/glitches.

I am making the PICO-8 files available for download for anyone who would like to take a look at the coding. If you find the game entertaining or the code examples useful, consider leaving a small donation; however, it is not necessary, nor expected. Have fun!

Super fun! Couldn't find the torch at first, bubt once I did, I had a blast.

Thanks for playing! Glad you liked it :D

I've tried playing this a few times, and either I've failed at pixel hunting or I'm missing something really obvious. I'm assuming the game is winnable, but how?

I've found the axe and the torch, and I know you can use the torch on the tree and the axe on either the tree or the stump.

Have you tried following your cat after the fire starts?

Phew! After multiple tries, i finally did it! I was pleasantly surprised by its simplicity yet difficulty! Great game :)

Thanks for playing it! I had a lot of fun making it, and have updated it with a little more polish and 100% more sound.

very short and cute game!

Thanks! I'm a fan of short browser games, so it's very cool to make one myself. I also just updated it to a new version with music/SFX.
