Upcoming game jam will make games for cats


Cats can play games with their paws

Stop the presses! People are getting together to create games for cats. Not about cats, or with cats in them, but stuff that cats can actually play. With their paws. Friskies is hosting a weekend-long event to gather developers for this special occasion.

The Games for Cats Hackathon is going down in Los Angeles starting on March 23, and the creator of the best game will get a $15,000 prize. It's so adorable I can hardly contain my excitement! I can't wait for them to upload all the videos of cats playtesting videogames.
