eGamer writes: "The Cat Lady is hands down one of the most disturbing, thrilling and memorable games I have ever played. It’s absolutely brilliant, and a wonderful achievement. It’s certainly not a game for everybody, but if you have a strong stomach and an attraction to haunting or overly dark things, then I can recommend few better games than this. In a perfect world, I’d encourage every gamer out there to play this. It’s that good, and it’s clear proof of how seriously you can take video games as a form of artistic expression. At the very least, it’s an excellent example of how well video games can handle mature and controversial content. But then again, we always knew that games are capable of it."
