Videogames for Cats and Humans


In 2013, together with Alex Camilleri we worked on a tablet game for cats and humans. We started to develop this game because we are convinced that we, as humans, can develop better tablet entertainment for cats than the applications that currently exist. Felino is a digital toy that allows humans and cats to play together. The main objective of Felino is really simple: enjoy and share playful moments with your feline companion. No highscores, no time pressure, no game-over – rather an experience that is more understandable for a cat: time spent playing together. I previously blogged about the playtesting process. This project has also been the basis for an academic paper.
