Harvey Johnson joined my crew at SeeminglyPointless.com and was to prove his tallent by participating in the GameBoyJam. About halfway through the jam, he decided to take a break from games and do some urban exploration of an abandonded facility a few hours away from his appartment.
Harvey found a CD and a note addressed to him in one of the abandoned buildings. I know this because he later tweeted a picture of it at me accusing me of planting it as a joke.
A day later, I heard he wasn't responding to people, so I went to see if he was doing alright. His apartment appeared untouched when I arrived, sans a glitched game screen and a sheet of paper saying "James upload this game." I didn't want to upload it, but I couldn't shake off the whispering I heard in the dark and the feeling that I was being watched. This went on for a full day until I finaly caved in and uploaded it. I don't feel as afraid in the dark anymore, but I will never open this game.
I uploaded some footage I got from his phone, and a few relevant pictures here. I just want to make sure people know what they're getting into. I'm afraid that if I try to hide the game, the shadows will come back, and I don't want to end up like Harvey.
Last bits of info on Harvey:
I linked the game's webpage to Harvey's page as I feel that's the most relevant. And I refer to whatever was stalking me as 'shadows' because I found several links to this site in his browser history:http://www.shadowpeople.org/
His profile on SeemPoint: http://seeminglypointless.com/hhj/
New information since the game's upload:
Since "Mr. Kitty Saves the World" was upload on GameJolt, it has been featured, posted on a few blogs, as well as in some forums. In other words, it has been played more than once. At first, I wondered if I had imagined it all. Maybe Harvey did just leave. Maybe the shadows were all in my head and the voices just paranoia. But then I was contacted by several game survivors, people who received similar instructios to what I have gotten. The most shocking example was brought to my attention by Nik Sudan who left Mr. Kitty in his downloads folder and woke up with this on his arm: https://twitter.com/NikSudan/status/357877283018665985/photo/1
In case you wonder if it was a prank pulled by a friend, he lives alone.
In terms of gameplay, from what I've seen of other people playing it, it seems that Mr. Kitty Saves the World is a finite runner.
As a warning: If you play this game and are contacted by whatever created it, please be willing to disapear. I know this sounds awful, but it has become extremely apparent that by following their instructions and not just disapearing, the game will continue to claim more lives. I am now sure that Harvey was doing the world a favor by letting it take him. Whereas I've hurt humanity by giving in.

And there was me thinking that the GBJam would be full of green run-’n'-gunners. What a fool I am! Seemingly Pointless chime in now with something undeniably purple, but that’s hardly important right now. Let’s take a little trip over to this page on their website about their apparently new member, who goes by the name of Harvey H. Johnson.
