Gamers can now jump into the world of Hollow Wish and play as Kit Ballard in Blade Kitten
. She is a cat/girl hybrid who bears the burden of being the last of her species. Poor thing. She's not one to sit around and whine, though. Blade Kitten
is an action-platformer with side-scrolling and exploration levels while riding on an alien mount.
The launch trailer is below and the game can be purchased for $14.99 on PC and PSN. The back story and fully-voiced characters might seem childish but the action looks fun enough that I might give it a try. What do you think?

Los Angeles, CA — September 22, 2010 — Atari, Inc., one of the world’s most recognized videogame publishers, and Krome Studios announced today the release of Blade Kitten, the epic action adventure title starring Kit Ballard, based on the comic book series by creator Steve Stamatiadis. Blade Kitten is now available for $14.99 on PlayStation®Network and Windows PC Download at Atari.com, BladeKitten.com and Steam.
Blade Kitten marks the latest creation by Mr. Stamatiadis, who is also the force behind the multi-million selling Ty the Tasmanian Tiger series. In Blade Kitten, a prequel to the comics set three years prior, players are invited into the world of Hollow Wish where they take on the role of Kit Ballard, one of the best bounty hunters in the business. With her pink hair and tail, Kit is part cat, part girl - and fully lethal. As one of the last of her species, Kit commands her unique “Darque Blade” hovering sword to defeat enemies. Also along for the ride is Skiffy, Kit’s laid-back sidekick who lends a hand in collecting items, solving puzzles, and when needed, serves as Kit’s protector.
Blade Kitten goes beyond most downloadable titles to deliver a strong narrative, with high-quality cinematics, and a colorful, frenetic visual style, that lends to the pick-up-and-play arcade action. Players can jump right in and easily begin exploring and fighting their way through multiple levels, including three exploration levels with Noot (a rideable alien mount). Blade Kitten features side scrolling gameplay mechanics, intuitive “scramble style” exploration, fully voiced dialogue, dramatic narrative and powerful visual direction.
Blade Kitten is rated ‘T’ for Teen.
