Grotesquely re-animated for RPGMaker.net's Revive the Dead Contest, October 2014. Jewish, depressed, 92-years-old and living on foreign soil. You never knew what kind of experience you were going to have when you visited my grandmother. Sometimes she was sweet, sometimes she was a nightmare, but she was always an absolute hoot. For better or for worse, I treasure the time we spent together. In this short linear visual novel, adapted directly from a short radio play I previously created, I aim to give the player the experience of visiting a crotchety old woman who just won’t quit. You can’t win, you can’t lose, and nothing gets resolved. And because of this, I feel that this is a scenario that many people can relate to. Featuring character artwork by Justyna Burzynska and full voice-acting. Contains coarse language and brief nudity.

Kitty City: A bustling commercial metropolis nicknamed The Big Milkbowl, an animal paradise where young cats can chase their dreams like birds in the sky. From the bright lights of the skyline to the sedate green spaces peppered around the city, it's a hell of a town. But beneath this dazzling facade is an underlying layer of darkness that the average joe wouldn't have the first idea about. No city is perfect, and Kitty City has more crime than you could shake a feather-on-a-stick at. `Nip dealers, extortionists, and worse.. When a frog turns up cold in Flirtybird Park in the middle of the day, the fuzz don't have any leads and don't know where to turn. Lucky for them, one cat trots alone through the seedy backstreets of Kitty City, doing what he can to make it a better place: JB Hairboll, Private Eye. A tribute to 1980s-1990s Japanese detective games such as JB Harold and Saburo Jinguuji, JB Hairboll is a short mystery that is suitable for players of all ages. Created within 30 days for NANORENO 2015 by Nurvuss, Justyna Burzynska and Borscht Boll the Cat.
