A Frayed Yarn

You play as Kitty, a happy well-cared for cat. Over the course of a week your normal routine of exploring your home, playing with toys, eating and sleeping is upset by an increasingly neglectful owner. The cat's priorities are that of routine structure, of predictability, and being well fed and loved. This is upset as its owner "Mama" deviates from her routine structure. But why? The cat's priorities differ from that of the owner's suddenly - does the owner no longer love kitty? This is a guided narrative through the eyes of a cat whose world is turned on end - and the vast divide between a human perspective and priorities and a cats perspective and priorities, and those brief, rare moments of epiphany where inter-species communication are found. All actions are performed with the Leap Motion interface. Players, use your paws!
