Real cats couldn't play White Cat Project because they have no thumbs

Mobile games are usually quick and easy, but you still have to end up fiddling with touch controls to figure out. That's if they work correctly. White Cat Project, recently revealed by Famitsu, seeks to change all of that by...

by Max Scoville


Sometimes, when I check my email, I find wonderful things like messages from friends and family, beta invites, or announcements that something I ordered has shipped.
