About this project
CatTube Famous is a card game where you aim to seize global trends and release cat videos that’ll get you a massive following on CatTube. Will audiences laugh at a fat cat hanging off the curtains this month, or will it be a cat thinking “they’re people too” as they climb up on the dinner table? Read the trends, time your video releases right, and you too could be CatTube Famous!
We've reached $5000! THAT'S INSANE. The thank you video has been recorded and it currently being edited, it's just a little reward but upcoming are some major ones! We've decided to announce our two next stretch goals:
We've reached $8000! Thanks everyone! Every backer gets 10% off of our next project! This may be a CatTube Famous expansion, a spin off (some have suggested DogTube Famous) or an entirely different game (which being honest will probably have cats)
Note: Due to the nature of this reward you'll have to back our next project with the same account. This will only be available for the first week of the project (we'll give you plenty of notice) and will be available for tiers up to and including how much you've backed here (if you backed $100 you'll be eligible for the 10% discount tier priced at $90 or below)
If we reach $20000: We'll add an additional 18 cards to CatTube Famous! It's a big jump but we can't work out any cheaper target. We'll be adding an additional trend, lots of additional video cards and one or two additional rule cards with variant modes or bonus rules!
Note: We'll be adding additional slots to get your cat into the game if we reach this goal. The price of these cats will be more expensive than the current options so no one is upset after buying something exclusive!
Check us out on social media:
- 2 double-sided rules cards
- 40 unique video cards
- 2 of each of the 15 different trend cards: angry, brave, clever, cool, cute, fat, happy, lazy, lively, naughty, sad, serious, silly, skittish and thin.
There is also the Catstarter Special Edition, available only through the $100 and $110 tiers. This is a dark edition pack with a high gloss box. The cards may also provide a raised effect, depending on our opinion of the implementation.
The Catstarter Special Edition contains the same number of cards as the standard edition with each of the cards having a darker style as shown below. *Note: Rules cards not shown
This will only be available throughout the Kickstarter, so be sure to back yours today!
We've also got the option to get your cat in the game! There are 2 options, either as a video card or as a single trend card that gets printed twice.
There are 35 video cards total, 25 available with the standard edition and 10 available only with the Kickstarter exclusive dark edition. There are 13 trend cards available only with a double pack.
To do this you send to us:
- One or more pictures of your cat
- A small selection of trends that you cat fits or doesn't fit
- Key characteristics of your cat, be it physical or attitudes
- The eye color you'd like your cat to have
- The name to put on the card (we recommend your cat's name but it may be anything family friendly)
Using this information we will select a video card to draw your cat onto, immortalizing your cat into our game! If you'd like multiple cards or multiple cats on your card then contact us on email@example.com and we'll try to accommodate you!

Josh is a young and eager developer with an interest in strong mechanics and fun. Liam is a freelance artist who has worked on many projects throughout the creative industries.
With some previous experience working together on game jams we've come up with a long list of interesting projects and we've decided that CatTube Famous was awesome enough to share it with the world!
The price of CatTube Famous may increase after the completion of the Kickstarter so get in quick!
Any listed prices do not include local taxes other than US and Australian taxes. Taxes may be applicable on delivery and vary by location.
If you're local to Victoria, Australia then we're planning to have launch parties in both Geelong and Melbourne. Current venues are Guf Geelong and Games Laboratory Melbourne. We'll ask you if you'd rather this or delivery at the end of the Kickstarter.
Kickstarter allows a lower risk production of CatTube Famous. We’re really passionate about getting it out there so having a successful Kickstarter gets the product to you and gives us an easier time when trying to get it into retail outlets.
CatTube Famous was inspired by Gentleman Cat Fanciers being mentioned on The Comedy Button podcast. This lead to an idea of making a game about cat watching and eventually about releasing cat videos!
First development started at the Global Game Jam 2015. After a few ideas were thrown around Josh decided to develop something, it turned out to be pretty fun so we kept developing it in the hopes to one day spread it with the rest of the world!
After the Kickstarter is funded the continued development of CatTube Famous is entirely art and marketing related. We’ll be releasing new art pieces every couple of days, ranging from sketches to final art pieces as we draw your cats onto our cards.
Financially our upcoming expenses are only the development costs, shipping expenses and Kickstarter fees. We’ve already invested some money into the project and will be continuing marketing efforts in the future that may impart additional fees, any additional profit we’re making off of the Kickstarter is put towards alleviating these costs.
When we reach certain stretch goals we’ll do our best to give you great rewards, both as an initial product and to ensure that we’re able to keep bringing you great products into the future. Stay tuned for more info!
Risks and challenges
The rules and gameplay are complete, artwork is underway however since we’re drawing your cats into the game we’ve planned enough time to complete and ship. Our goal is to get the game to you before 25th of December so we’ll be ordering the product for delivery in November to ensure that we can work around any issues that may arise.
Our manufacturer may reprint if they are not satisfied with the first print result, ensuring you get the best quality product. We’ll be keeping you updated every step of the way, letting you know where we’re at with our development process and letting you know if there will be delays in shipping.
