As it turns out, BOV’s Cat and Ghostly Road was inspired by real life. They found a white cat under a bridge fifteen years prior and took it in. “The inspiration for creating the game was our cat! Because the cat is white, he resembles a moon cat. We gradually became imbued with the idea of fantasy in an Asian style. Everything else fell into place naturally,” said BOV.

With a runtime of around three hours, Cat and Ghostly Road is filled with puzzles and little tasks to complete. Locate a skull for a ghost and drive away rats from an old ship. Retrieve a phoenix feather and play a clay flute to navigate this unusual, atmospheric game.

Cat and Ghostly Road launches for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Microsoft Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch on 6th March 2024. It’ll retail for $9.99 USD.
