Pawel Purrlovski is your man for exceptional jobs.

But he’s not just burning (literally) with the desire to perform the most daring stunts ever, but also to finally be with the love of his life.

A love so deep, he will go to hell and back, just to brag about it. Experience a story, so action packed and full of passion, you will get emotional whiplash from it (or even acutal whiplash, depending on the quality of your chair).

Join Pawel on a journey trough his nine lifes and witness a whirlwind of love, passion and explosions!

Nine lifes - one decision

In the end there is always a price to be paid.

Quite a dramatic end but a passionate journey along the way. Really nice work. :)

Swords, fire and explosions. There are many ways for a stunt-cat to lose their nine lives...

With a strong narrative focus and melodic crisp voice acting there is no better way to indulge your Hollywood noir fantasies.

If you're an admirer like I of narrative based platformers the likes of 'Night in the Woods' and 'Celeste' then you will most definitely fall in love with this Itch Dot Io Indie.
