In Little Kitty Big City, you play as a cat lost in the big city, and you must get home...but there's so much else to do

There aren't enough games starring cute cats. Thankfully, developer Double Dagger Studio is doing something to rectify that. Little Kitty, Big City is a frankly adorable feline sandbox in which you must find your way home as the titular lil' black cat. You will inevitably get distracted along the way.

What is Little Kitty, Big City all about?

Since Stray is taking its sweet time to get here (as befits a cat), it looks like other studios are stepping up to fill the void. Little Kitty, Big City is a painfully cute game starring a tiny black kitten who is lost in the titular big city. You must find your way home and try to avoid (read: embrace) getting sidetracked by cardboard boxes, enticing fish, and curious dogs along the way. You can check out the trailer for Little Kitty, Big City here, and if you manage to make it through without being overwhelmed by cuteness aggression, you're a better man than me.

From a gameplay perspective, Little Kitty, Big City is looking somewhat similar to the rather successful Untitled Goose Game, only this game stars an animal that isn't a stone cold psychopath (sorry, goose lovers). You'll get to explore the city, using vines to reach higher ground, and it looks like you can steal food from unsuspecting vendors as well. Whether you have any other goals besides "get home" remains to be seen, but frankly, I'm looking forward to just existing in this world and hearing the lil' void meow. Oh, and you can wear hats. Of course you can. Grr.

When is the Little Kitty, Big City release date?

As Double Dagger puts it, "cats don't have deadlines", so right now, there's no Little Kitty, Big City release date, beyond a general target of 2022. It looks like the game will be done when it's done, so we'll have to wait a little bit longer to enact some feline mischief. Of course, in the meantime, you can just watch that trailer over and over again and remind yourself how adorable black cats are.

Cats can talk to crows in Little Kitty, Big City. That's probably just because our feline hero can't reach its quarry.

We'll bring you more on Little Kitty, Big City, including a potential release date, as soon as we get it. In the meantime, you can wishlist the game on Steam. If you're a fan of chaotic sandboxes like Just Die Already (which got a PvP update not too long ago) or Goat Simulator, it's safe to say you'll probably enjoy this one, too. Here's hoping for a dedicated "knock things off the side then look smug" button.
