Little Kitty, Big City Assures Players They Can’t Hurt the Cat

Despite concerns, Little Kitty, Big City is the purr-fect family-friendly pick for budding gamers and good fun for seasoned players.

Little Kitty, Big City is out now across PC and console, and players are having a ball exploring the city on all-fours. From curling up in empty boxes and sunny nap spots to donning the most adorable hats you’ve ever seen, Kitty’s to-do list primarily includes leisurely activities sure to please cozy gamers. However, you’ll also encounter a few obstacles throughout the city as you make your way back to your apartment, which has raised some concerns about feline safety following the game’s launch on May 9.

Little Kitty’s development team has wasted no time putting these concerns to rest, reassuring players that curiosity can’t kill this cat. In fact, there’s really no way to hurt the four-legged protagonist on your Little Kitty, Big City playthrough — though puddles and unfriendly dogs will naturally give Kitty a good scare.

Developer Matt Wood took the time to address one parent’s worries on X (formerly Twitter). Wood shared his response, stating that his goal was to make a game that “very young kids can play (and their parents will be okay with it).” Having spent roughly 10 hours making leaps and bounds in the city myself, I’d say he and the rest of the development team at Double Dagger succeeded.

Little Kitty, Big City Offers Up Family-Friendly Fun

Little Kitty, Big City follows a lost cat that fell from its apartment window during a particularly good nap. A lighthearted adventure through the city ensues, introducing a genuinely funny cast of characters, quests, and cat-chievements. While the premise has earned some comparisons to the anxiety-inducing Stray, Double Dagger’s wholesome indie title couldn’t play out any more differently in practice.

A true exploration-based game, Little Kitty, Big City largely rewards you for your curiosity without penalty. You’ll find all manner of items littered throughout the city, from Rubik’s cubes and rubber ducks to tennis balls, bones, and the occasionally unsupervised slipper. You can even rack up shinies — an in-game currency of sorts — by diving in trash cans or swiping birds’ nests and jars from high places.

I’ll admit I was nervous to scale buildings when I first began playing, but as it turns out, miscalculated leaps, barking dogs, and wet feet aren’t cause for concern. After all, cats always land on their feet, and that’s half the fun. You may even earn an achievement or two for your mistakes, like getting kicked out of shops or leaving pawprints in wet concrete.

To that end, Little Kitty, Big City is the purr-fect family-friendly pick for budding gamers and good fun for even the most seasoned players. For help finding collectible hats and Chameleon’s hiding spots, check out our Little Kitty, Big City guides hub here at GameSkinny.
