We've all heard of dogs eating homework, but the developer behind the brilliant indie FPS game, Dusk, claims his cat put his new title on Steam. 

Chop Goblins, a bite-sized retro shooter, is out now. 

Originally, the developer said they planned to launch it in early 2023. Unless this is a clever bit of marketing - and let's be honest, it probably is - we've got a cat called Zamboni to thank for the early release. 

Listen, I know you're not here for the game, so here's a photo of the cat. 

What a magnificent creature. 

Described as a "microshooter", Chop Goblins is designed to be played to completion in about 30 minutes. 

"You thought it would be fun to break into a nearby museum and root through the artifacts stored there," reads the description on the Chop Goblins Steam page. "Little did you know that a dusty chest in the basement imprisoned the evil CHOP GOBLINS.

"Now they're loose, wrecking [sic] bladed havok [sic] on the world once again. It's up to you to chase them through the city and across space and time, in a bespoke FPS campaign spanning the modern day, 1800's Transylvania, ancient Greece, and the not too distant future."
