LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Game Developer Chris Chung the creator, explains that the aim of the game is to roam around virtual rooms and swipe at objects using the cat's paw. Like other bad kitties, your aim to destroy as many household items as possible. Take that, priceless antique lamp! Take that, bird cage! Feel my wrath, glass vase!

In order to play, users go around the room using the keyboard keys W, for left, A for forward, S for back, and D for right. In order swipe at objects and knock them over, click the left and right mouse buttons. He advises that you keep the cat's paw facing forward by holding the middle scrolling button on the mouse, or press the button once to swat forward. 

Wear your faith proudly by going here --

There are two elective modes of play. "Cat Ops" lets players roam around the virtual house at their leisure. In Time Attack mode, players are given two minutes to cause as much damage as possible, collecting points for each broken item.
 
Based in Boston, Chung came up with the idea for Catlateral Damage last summer and is now working on a full version release. It is currently available as an alpha version and can be played on browsers that have the Unity Web Player plug-in installed +5.

There are also standalone players for Windows, Linux and Mac operating systems.

A full version is expected later this year 2014.
