Cute, but not very memorable, July 4, 2017

Saybutts is an interactive story entered in Twiny Jam about the perennial plight of a cat owner: how to stop your cat waking you up in the middle of the night. The cat in question is named Sabriel, "the Patience of God", apparently so called because that's what you need to deal with her.

The moment I played it, the lovely and character-filled photos of Sabriel won me over. If you have even the slightest fondness of cats, it's worth giving it a playthrough for the photos alone.

That aside, there's not much here, for better or for worse. The shortness is of course a component of Twiny Jam, and it does do a good job packing that small scope with a complete story (a gentle, slice-of-life story) and interactivity. However, other Twiny Jam games had far more impact on me while still adhering to the same space constraints. The prose isn't bad, but neither does it stand out. There are some cute and amusing observations, and the ending made me chuckle, but by and large, the story is pretty unmemorable.

Worth playing for some excellent photos and a sweet little story, just don't expect it to blow your mind.

For a much more in-depth game about feline cuteness and annoyance, I recommend Cat Petting Simulator 2014.
