Not A Cat Info

Sun Nov 23, 2014, 3:36 AM
What is it?

Not A Cat is a game being developed by Binary Tales in which you control Silk, the little ruler of Karistalia. Silk is a Quartz Basilisk, a rare species that is born each time the last one passes away and whose fate is to rule Karistalia. This fact has been forgotten by Karistalians for long now and they are confused by Silk's looks. Since the first time Silk was told it looked like a cat, everyone else thinks so too which makes him really uncomfortable. However, what really made him explode was his friend Kil calling him that too. Now Silk must prove the world he's not a cat while fixing everything he messes up in his rage along the way.

Main Characters

Silkis Ban Drakonis (aka Silk)
Young ruler of Karistalia. A bit scaredy-cat (lol) and easily angered. Often tries to kill by looking as it is said basilisks can do. However, he's a Quartz Basilisk, who cannot do that but he can instead control the elements. That's where the game starts as Silk needs to master those elements and seeks the help of the Guardians. A note about basilisks is that they're genderless so Silk is neither a boy or a girl but often referred as "he" for making conversations easier.

Kilbaiss (aka Kil)
Good friend of Silk since childhood. He is the other type of basilisk existing in the world, a Regular Basilisk or, as they call themselves, True Blood Basilisk. They're genderless too and can hurt by looking into the eyes, which isn't actually the best way to fight because they need the victim to be reeeally still. Kil belongs to the Basilisk Empire, not Karistalia, but was exiled for helping Silk when his castle was invaded by the basilisk emperor. Kil is really intelligent and often thinks he might have the only brain in all Karistalia and the Basilisk Empire. People often look bad at him for looking like the enemy.

The shopkeeper. "If there is a true god, that's money" is her religion. She's really kind (to her customers) and helps Silk out a lot (he's a king, he's got money~) but can be a fierce monster when she doesn't like something. Mia often leaves her shop to get new materials from defeating monsters by herself. She has a sister named Ami who sells similar products around dungeons and they're always fighting for who gets more money. She's a Karistalian dragon.

Fire-Idle by SilviShinyStar

Darkness Guardian
Lonely, cranky, fearless and quite creeppy sometimes. He can control shadows to will. Formerly known as Ender but doesn't respond to that name anymore. Represents solitude.

Darkness-Idle by SilviShinyStar

Light Guardian
Jolly, honest, energetic and bright. One of Silk's ancestors (a Quartz basilisk) who discovered the power of Light and became one with it. Usually uses light flashes to blind the opponent but is said to have a lot more power than it seems. Formerly known as Hope and still prefers that name. Represents hope.

For those who want to know a bit more since the game's going slower than expected. >~<

Hola, me interesaría saber como va el progreso. Hay algo más de historia aparte de la intro por ahora? Cuantos niveles se pueden desbloquear y con que criterio? La vendedora de las cuevas ya fue implementada? Podrían agregar el dialogo a el creador de niveles?

Desde ya, gracias! Sigan así! 
(por cierto, conocen de gente que suba sus niveles a algun lado? Porque me fue muy dificil encontrar incluso esta pagina; tuve que buscar "Binary Tales" en vez de "Not a Cat" )

Hola, lo siento pero está un poco parado ahora mismo. Tenemos mucho trabajo con la universidad y otros proyectos con mayor prioridad pero tenemos muchas ganas de acabarlo, no te preocupes. xD
Los niveles ahora mismo son infinitos, están generados proceduralmente así que no se acaban nunca. La vendedora de cuevas todavía no está y los diálogos en el creador no creo que podamos, ni siquiera esperábamos que alguien lo usase tanto. xD Te animamos a compartir los niveles que hagas en el grupo (Binary-Tales) para que otros puedan disfrutarlos y nosotros sepamos cómo usas el creador para mejorarlo. :dummy:

is it possible to play on Windows 7?
SilviShinyStar Featured By Owner May 12, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No, sorry. However, in July, you'll be able to download Windows 10 for free, which is compatible. ^^

i did what you said and waited till i had windows 10, the game is great i only have one question tho, how do i progress in the story?

I'm so sorry but the game's not finished so you can't really see more story just yet. You can, however, find some bosses if you get far enough in the levels. We are really busy with university work, sorry. >-<
I'm so happy you like it so far, it means a lot. ovo
