The Cat and the Coup
The Cat and the Coup, by Peter Brinson and Kurosh ValaNejad, is a documentary game in which you play the cat of Dr. Mohammed Mossadegh, the first democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran. During the summer of 1953, the CIA engineered a coup to bring about his downfall. The player takes the role of Dr. Mossadegh's cat, a kind of mischievous spirit who guides him through the events of his life by solving a series of short puzzles. As a player, you coax Mossadegh back through significant events of his life by knocking objects off of shelves, scattering his papers, jumping on his lap and scratching him. The Cat and the Coup utilizes a creative application in the digital gaming industry that allows the user to discover a story and gain a new realization.
