Catherine "Nightmare" Trailer Released, Demo Next Week

Yes, more Catherine media has surfaced -- this time in the form of a snazzy new trailer. The video does a bit to set up the story, while offering little tidbits of gameplay. The latter isn't tremendously insightful, but after a quick YouTube search, yours truly has returned with a lovely prize/light spoiler, which gives one a much better understanding of how gameplay will work. In addition, Atlus USA sent out a tweet earlier today, stating that the game will be available July 12th on both PS3 and 360. No word yet on how long the demo would be, but I for one am just happy to have a little morsel on this side of the Pacific.


Overall, I'm quite intrigued with Catherine - pleasantly so. I had casually ignored it for some time; the cover art simply screamed "I'm being made for adolescent boys," rather than the far less catchy (imaginary) tagline, "What David Lynch sees in his head when he's 'in the mood.'" There's been a decent amount of buzz around the game (at lest in my profoundly weird circles), and from what I've seen in terms of gameplay, it seems as though it will be suitably odd, yet addictive. For those unfamiliar with Catherine, it's a bit difficult to describe. The words "erotic platformer," "erotic horror," and generally anything involving the word erotic. Weaving a tangled web of love, infidelity, mysterious deaths, and general visual oddities, Catherine definitely has its own unique vibe. Given a man with horns and boxers, the unnerving presence of anthropomorphic sheep, and platforming one's way back to the world of the living while giant hands threaten to pull one into the swirling vortex of infinity - all this being within the confines of a particularly hallucinative nightmare, naturally - it tickles the fancy of one, such of myself, who bows at the altar of weirdness.

I, too, am craving more Catherine. Finally a game that speaks to my straight alter-ego who is punished for loving not to well yet too much.

Very excited for this game. Sure, because there's hot women and I'm a girl who likes breasts, sure, but mostly because it looks unique and experimental. Gaming has gotten so amazingly samey in the past five years. I'm jumping at the chance to play something colourful, intelligent, and different.

Agreed. Catherine is one of the few games I've seen in the past months that has really struck my interest, sp I'm quite eager to give it a whirl.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
