This is probably the most positive opinion I've ever seen about the game. Apparently it was so bad that the developers pulled it off the market.

They didn't. They dropped the price enormously, though, from the original £20 to about £5, which I'd say is really as far as you'd want to push it. I found it to be utterly awful for the first half hour, then I got it, and it became brilliantly amusing. For, um, about another half hour. The joke wears thin pretty quickly.
The game takes itself about as seriously as you have to take it in order to enjoy it. But the press material kinda led me to expect that. Had I gone into it totally blind, I suspect I'd have passed it off as impossible nonsense right away.

I think when the price is that cheap it can make people want to buy it just to see how bad it is. At least that's the effect it's having on me.

It is worth noting that this is the only game I have ever played that includes, in the options menu, the following question and tickbox:
"Do you like cats?"

Actually, turns out Sportsman is perhaps right. A glance at the game's website says it is not currently available, but to watch this space for an updated version. Hmm.
