Got a Musical Keyboard gathering dust somewhere?  If you do, then great!  If you don't, then a QWERTY keyboard will still work!

Simple musical patterns control the cat, and playing on the rhythm will speed you up.
Designed to be playable by a total beginner to music, the game introduces basic musical concepts in an approachable way.

This release is a prototype/demo that's about 15 minutes long with development ongoing, so constructive feedback is encouraged :)

FYI MIDICat is pretty amazing!

Glad you liked it!  Hope people start to take more interest in MIDI controlled games ^^

I looked at this at Rezzed, but didn't really get a chance to play; I ran it today on my Lenovo Yoga 2 10.1 Windows tablet/ synth and it's super cute:D

Such a cute and fun game! <3


This looks like a great idea. I've always wanted to experiment with making a game that used MIDI input but never got around to it. Any chance of a linux build? If it's not easy to do then don't worry about it.

I've uploaded a Linux version, but I've got no way to test it sorry >_<

Can you re-upload it, please? The archive lacks Data folder, but has a redundant dll file.


Ok I think I was mislead by how big the .x86 file was >_<, I've changed the linux build now to be the .x86 and the Data folder.  I don't have a linux box so hopefully that works :o)


Really cute & unique concept! It hat fun imMIDIately :)
