A new 3D adventure game where you're a cat-girl.
Giraffe & Annika

Giraffe & Annika is a new 3D adventure title from Atelier Mimina and publisher PLAYISM. Players will assume the role of cat-girl Annika as she makes her way through this "musically charged" title. It is available now through Steam.

You will get to visit the mysterious island of Spica in order to uncover its hidden secrets. You will explore vivid dungeons, collect alternate outfits, and "artistic meow-sterpieces." Get it? Because you play as a cat-girl. There will also be bosses that need defeating. While the adventuring and exploration are pretty typical for 3rd person adventure titles, the battles against enemies and bosses are carried out through the power of music. Players will need to match actions and attacks to the beat of the music. Speaking of music, we're told that the soundtrack for this game was recorded by a live orchestra. That seems pretty neat.

As for your motivation, it's really quite simple A boy named Giraffe tasks Annika with seeking out three star fragments. Annika's story is told to players through a manga-style comic. As you progress, Annika will slowly regain her lost memories and build up the strength to take on the evil witch Lily.

Giraffe & Annika normally goes for $17.99 (USD) but has a launch week discount of 10% off until February 24. The soundtrack is sold as a bundle with the game or separately for $9.99, reduced to $8.99 during the launch window.

This probably won't appeal to you "hardcore gamers™" out there, but this game just looked too gosh dang adorable to not share this news.
