To those of us in the U.S. (and those who know who we are thanking ;-) ), Happy Thanksgiving. I won’t be posting anything until about next Wednesday or so. Probably Thursday, I’ll have a review of Awesome Soccer by Red27 Studios.

Everyone loves Mario! You do, don’t you? You know Mario, the little Italian plumber from a series of games from Nintendo that goes back to the ancient Donkey Kong, and still 20-30 years later we’re still enjoying him. You know, Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros, Super Mario World, and on and on. Spin-offs of spin-offs, tv shows, and what have you, he’s become almost as recognized as Mickey Mouse the world over, and maybe even surpassed (I can’t remember but I might have read an article where he surpassed Mickey as the most famous fictional character), but I digress… There’s been a ton of fan games and rip offs. Now let’s talk a little bit about cats. Okay so they’re not as exciting. But a lot of us love cats, take the characters in John Wizard Game’s Dawn’s Light for instance, or Cat Ladies. So it makes some sense that someone, somewhere would create a game that has both CAT and MARIO elements. It’s by some Japanese person, whom I don’t even know the name of because I can’t read Japanese. This only makes sense though because Nintendo is a Japanese company. What makes this game unique though (aside from the fact that you play a cat in what looks like a rip off of Super Mario Bros)? You’re about to find out…
Okay at this point I was doing walk animations. Hand drawn at first using paper, and then eventually using a program a friend had made. I’ve decided since they are nothing but short paragraphs each with animation, I would put all 4 previous posts here. They’re all walk cycles, and Joe doesn’t really look right in each one but still there’s some of my lame skill. A quick note, I don’t know what happened to animation number 2… I think I had done it but had not put up a post about it.
