It’s always wonderful to see video games bring people together, but it’s even more rewarding when games bring folks together for a good cause. In recent years, this philanthropy has become more and more commonplace with charitable Twitch streams and events like Games Done Quick, a series of speedruns and game marathons that fundraise money for charity. In tandem with these traditions of good-will is the recent release of Gamers for Good’s new title, Cat Burglar: A Tail of Purrsuit, a stealthy platformer that educates players on a number of animal charities.

Unlike the previously mentioned Twitch streams and events, Cat Burglar: A Tail of Purrsuit doesn’t strive to be charitable through the classic telethon format, rather, through its own gameplay. In between levels of stealthy puzzles where the protagonist Kat attempts to infiltrate the Dogo Corps headquarters, players will unlock a variety of different pet organizations and learn about their respective charitable causes.

Available exclusively through Steam, Cat Burglar: A Tail of Purrsuit is the premiere title from the new developer Gamers for Good, a non-profit charity that aims to make games more philanthropic. In addition to creating their own games, Gamers for Good also hopes to work with developers to add charitable downloadable content and bonus features to preexisting games.
