In Mineko’s Night Market, you are a girl who runs a stall on a whimsical island dominated by cats. The game comes to PC and Mac in 2018.
It was only a matter of time, but a company in Fukuoka, Japan is now making samurai armor for pets.
The greatest tragedy in my life is that I am allergic to cats. I’d normally supplant my desire for cat ownership by getting one in a video game, but, a cursory look at the mods on Nexus shows me that video game cats in popular games like Skyrim and Fallout 4 aren’t quite right. Here are the things Bethesda games get…
In case you were feeling somehow short on online content to consume today, here is a video of Tocen clicking a mouse one million times. It took him 17.5 hours to do, and he filmed the whole thing.
I went to the set of this year’s annual Puppy Bowl, and I made sure to bring a camera. The more I type, the more you’ll have to scroll past to see the baby animals, so I’ll cut that shit out.

It’s not that cats are important in Japanese politics. Cats are important. Full stop.
You’ve might have seen the super lucky cat in restaurants and shops. But did you know the cat has its own temple in Tokyo?
We’re entering the next phase of cat cafes. It’s fancy.
This is Koyuki. She is a 9 years-old, a Scottish Fold, and never looks like a happy camper.
Mobile games should all implement Neko Atsume’s criteria: full of adorable cats you can buy toys for—for their entertainment and yours. But just like real life, not all things can be purrfect. Not even my new-found furry mobile friends. That’s why ranking all 53 of them—from worst to best—seems a logical thing to do.
During crowded train rides and shows that require just half of my attention, I play games on my phone. Some condescendingly refer to this as “casual gaming,” but some mobile titles can be just as exciting as a chain reaction of explosions in a big-budget console game like Just Cause 3.
