You have a mysterious curse. Learn magic spells that will help you to collect 13 and a half cats and find your way again.

With its fresh and vibrant 3D art style and magical context juxtaposed with real-life situations and emotions, Thirteen & Half Cats definitely stands out from the crowd. It is a story that resonates with players of all ages and abilities. In a world where games are defined by 20+ hours of addictive gameplay - Thirteen & Half Cats proves that short games and narratives can rouse a deep and rich experience in the time it takes to drink a cup of tea.


Thirteen & Half Cats was originally developed in 9 days for the Weekly Game Jam. The theme was 'Remember'.

Nekomatata has made several games over the past two years and this is the one we are most proud of. The tone that we set when designing the story, game mechanics and general feeling of the game is our biggest success to date.

We have great hopes that players will resonate with the emotions we've shared through mystery, exploration and the characters involved.

This is our way to express a deep, personal message about mourning and remembrance. We couldn't have written it with words alone.


  • Fresh & vibrant 3D art style
  • Short emotional story-driven experience
  • For all ages
