Podcast on friday, starting sometime between 7PM and 8PT BST

Remember that this is british summertime now and the time gap might be weird for you, as always you can find that out on this handy website.

Please bring something that you think is interesting for show and tell, or I will insist on talking about a bunch of garbage that I made up!

Love, Cats

PS: To all playtesters of Lawyer Guy who may be looking forward to seeing their name in the credits because the game has actual credits: apologies for the delay. Busy as always. Good news is, I will soon be outsourcing my entire internet persona to catsmanbot, whom I have recently taught to use the word ‘whom’ incorrectly.

Podcast on the 22nd

Hi all! Based on the people I’ve surveyed, it seems as though the 22nd is the preferred date. Likely around our usual time (3PM). We’re now in British Summertime, just to make things confusing. If you’re reading this, you’re welcome to come along, you can find our mumble info in the sidebar to your right. Remember that I am still trying to make SHOW&TELL a thing, so bring any interesting bits of news, gossip or idle speculation you like. In other words, do my job for me because I am oh so lazy. Also because if you don’t, I have prepared another segment, which will be awful.

I don’t have too much else to report – but I hope to be streaming some more Lawyer Gyy development in the coming week. If you haven’t sent me feedback yet, you have until whenever I decide to start streaming!

Love, Cats

Specs won a competition and went to go and play a Nintendo Switch. Was it any good? Not really. There, I saved you two hours.

Happyman toiled while editing this episode. Catsman apologizes again.

Help test Lawyer Guy: Tetrahedron Alley

The new level for Lawyer Guy is now complete. Amongst other things, it introduces the ‘portable checkpoint’ mechanic, which allows Lawyer Guy to place down a checkpoint anywhere in the level.
If you’d like to help test Lawyer Guy, shoot an email to and I will send you a playable build. The level might still have some rough edges! After I’ve rounded them down, I will release it publicly. You are allowed\encouraged to stream anything I send you (sorry, no prizes, unless you want more Bad Rats), and anyone who fills in the feedback form will get their name\alias in the Lawyer Guy credits.

Love, Cats

PS: Podcast… maybe next weekend? Not this immediate one, the one starting on the 14th. I will be polling people throughout the month. Please make sure you’ve watched the book club TV show if you want in on that discussion.
