Catherine is an adult and mature-oriented puzzle video game developed and published by Atlus.  It is self-described as an "unconventional romantic horror". Originally the game was made for PS3 and Xbox 360 back in 2011, however it has since been ported to Steam as "Catherine Classic" in January 2019. Unlike the console versions, the PC version has dual audio, 4K support, and unlocked framerate. This was done as Atlus gears up to re-release this an enhanced version of the game titled: Catherine Full Body onto PS4. 

Catherine Full Body releases for Americas and Europe on September 3rd 2019.

Catherine Full-Body is the same base game as Catherine, but as an enhanced port/re-make will have added story lines, quests, "sexy episodes", endings, and a new dream girl to die for. Needless to say if you were a fan of the original you don't want to miss out, and if you're a new player you might want to pick up Full Body for the ultimate experience. So what's it about?

Quote

Vincent Brooks begins having strange nightmares after his girlfriend, Katherine, begins to talk about marriage and commitment. This matter becomes more complicated for him when he meets a girl named Catherine, and begins an affair with her, and the nightmares get more and more intense.

The main story mode, Golden Playhouse, follows the story between Daytime and Nightmare scenarios. During the daytime, Vincent will converse with his friends as well as try to handle his relationships with Catherine and Katherine. Most of this time takes place in the Stray Sheep bar where Vincent can save and send text messages from his mobile phone, talk to customers, order drinks, play a minigame titled Rapunzel or listen to a jukebox containing tracks from other Atlus games such as the Persona series.

The main gameplay takes place in the Nightmare stages. In a nightmarish dreamworld inhabited by other men, who are represented as anthropomorphic sheep, Vincent must climb up giant staircases that are slowly collapsing underneath him and safely reach the top. To accomplish this, Vincent must push, pull and climb blocks as quickly as possible while avoiding various traps such as spikes and ice. Climbing up steps in quick succession increases a score multiplier, and at the end of the level, players are given an award based on their score. Each stage is split up into numerous areas, culminating in a boss stage in which a nightmarish creature also attempts to kill Vincent. 

Vincent can move faster depending on how much alcohol he drinks during the day and can earn pillows that allow him to retry levels. There are also several items which can be found or purchased in between stages, such as spare blocks, lightning which removes enemies and energy drinks that allow Vincent to climb more steps at a time. Vincent will die if he falls off the bottom of the level, gets caught by a trap or is killed by a boss, with the game ending if Vincent runs out of retry pillows. In between action stages, Vincent can interact with the other sheep, save his game, learn techniques or spend coins on special items. When playing on easy and normal difficulty, players can push the Select/Back button to correct a single block move.

Throughout the game, the choices the player makes during certain sections of the game will affect the development of Vincent's character and the route the story takes place. This is represented by a morality meter, which can change in several ways, such as how Vincent types out a text message to one of the girls, how he answers certain questions and how he converses with non-playable characters. The game features multiple endings based on the route Vincent takes.

It has been asked what the game play is like as Catherine is described as a puzzle game. The best I can do is give you a video. As you progress in the game this gets VERY challenging due to traps and other things trying to kill you. Here's a bit of gameplay so you can see:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pErv6ol6ZC0

I played this game a while ago, well quite a few years now. From what I remember, this was the weirdest game I had played at that time...

It's a unique game to say the least, but very enjoyable. The story line is interesting and I'm excited to see what all they added for Full Body.
