A downloadable game for Windows


NOTICE: Kato is a prototype, and is not going to be further developed. The game is free to download and we hope it will bring you as much joy playing it as it was fun for us to make it!


Note: Kato is best played with an Xbox Controller

Kato is a single player 3D third-person adventure game built in Unreal Engine where you play as the dog Kato.  

Your hometown has been through a great tragedy and your owner feels sad to see her home break apart. Kato sets out to make the village into a better place by barking, digging, sprinting and using objects in the surroundings to spread happiness!

As you explore your hometown you will help people get together, repair the broken windmill and save the homeless mayor of the town.  

Explore, find secrets, pester the mailman and spread happiness!

Who are we?

Cliffside is a team of students who made Kato for anyone who can read English and want a casual dog adventure with a focus on empathy rather than violence. By releasing this prototype of Kato we want to see how interested people are in what we made.

Awesome game but theres no way to lower the resolution. I cant see what people are saying because some of it goes offscreen!

this game gave me sweet sweet animal crossing vibes. well done, i'm looking forward for future games <3

How do i open this file? its a win64.rar. or do i need any program to run this game?

Hey! You need to unpack the rar file, if you have winZip, 7rar or winrar installed you can right click on the .rar-file and select "extract here" and it will unpack an .exe-file!

(If I'm not mistaken, if you don't have an unpacking software, you can open the .rar and drop and drag the .exe to your wanted location.)

Hope it goes well! :)

Very colorful game that controls well and was just generally a peaceful and cute time! Would be great for kids or just casual players. It has a dark premise but that’s almost refreshing for the type of game it is. Well done and i hope you do something more in a similar style in the future! 

i couldn't download it......

Could you describe your problem with why it doesn't work?

Finally got to play today and had so much fun I streamed it. Lovely work. Kato is adorable and such a good boy. :)

So cute! I definitely cried when it got to the bit by the memorial. For some reason I wasn't able to dig properly with the xbox controller and had to use the keyboard, but that may have been me! A very satisfying game even though it was pretty short.

We're glad to hear you had a pleasant time :)
The thing about the digging is a bit strange, are you sure you were using the triggers and not the bumpers? I just double checked and it should work correctly... strange.

Could be! I haven't used this specific controller that often

This game (demo) is very well put together! It's so cute, fun, lovely to look at but yet it has a deeper meaning! Highly recommended game! :) Spare some time to explore the island!

Can't wait to see more!

Thank you for making this prototype, even though it will no longer be further developed, I hope one day you decide to return to it, until then thank you for this lovely slice of game.
