==================

Vacation at Grandmas has never been more irritating! She has always been a bit cat crazy, but this is absurd! All you want to do is read your new book in peace.

Build up your pillow fort to defend against the snuggle seeking cats who want your warm lap like it's about to go out of fashion!

The catch? You only get ONE hour to build up your defenses before the hordes arrive!

==================

Controls

Space bar (hold) - Show item menu.

Left mouse button - Select item, place item.

Mouse - rotate item after it has been placed.

Right mouse button - Cancel action, remove placed item.

Escape - Quit.

When the first cat jumped out I lost it. So great.

Hilarious and amazing concept. Who doesn't fucking love pillow forts? Only problem I see is that it is a bit easy. Does it get any harder later on?

This was pretty unique, I really liked building my fort :D The cats came quite slowly though, and the brooms were too cheap. Overall it's one of the best I've played so far though!

The amount of cats only increase as the nights pass. Hopefully I can add a better difficulty curve after the competition ends. Thanks for the nice comments and plays so far!

Placing items isn't working for me on windows 8. I hover over the item selection menu and try clicking, nothing happens, and I try clicking somewhere after releasing space, and still nothing happens.

Nevermind, it's because my laptop won't let me click if I'm holding the space bar down. Could you make it so left control works in place of the space bar?

Very well executed for 48 hours, very polished. Great effort, I'd only say the direction could be divided a little better, all cats from one side is gonna get you sooner or later.

Pretty hilarious game. :) I felt it was a bit light on the theme but everything else was great!

This looks like a major success! The polish is unbelievable in such a short period of time. Features a really nice, innovative control scheme for placing objects. How can anyone not love the game concept!?

AWESOME! - Everything (graphics, audio, fun factor, game mechanics)except the game length and difficulty.
GOOD - For a 48hr compo, the number of levels is acceptable.
NOT SO GOOD - The game's a little too easy.
CONCLUSION - A very creative use of the theme and a very good addition to the "tower defense" genre of games.

Idea is great! The graphics are good. But it is a little boring and too easy if you use only blue pillows.

Great game, very fun and charming. Unfortunately it seems to be a pretty decent strategy to spam the blue square-shaped pillows everywhere, though. I didn't even use any of the other things later in the game.. :)

Really neat idea and I love the art style in this. :)
