What's with the name?
Way before Harley Howe and Patrick Wilkinson formed Cat Daddy Games 20+ years ago, Harley was exposed to the perils of falling trees at a family-owned timber company. In those days, a cut tree commonly got stuck on other trees as it fell towards the ground. The solution was a person called a "cat daddy." A cat daddy climbed up stuck trees to hack away at their tangled branches ... and then had to rush downwards as trees started to fall. The more time Harley spent with cat daddys, the more he realized they were responsible for enormous amounts of creativity and bravery.
And so ...
Cat daddys left quite the impression on Harley. When Pat and Harley started their video game company, it seemed fitting that Cat Daddy Games be the name. After all, Pat and Harley were operating without a safety net and making adventurous games on a variety of emerging platforms. Kinda like a nerdier version of cat daddys.
Cat Daddy Games is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive, so it’s part of a pretty big family. And while we love making massive games and being in something so impressive, the studio is a small group of incredibly talented game makers who get the job done with collaboration, skill, grit and humor.
Cat Daddy has shipped games of almost every genre and on almost every platform. Whether it was the rise of simulation games, handhelds, the Wii, Kinect, and now VR and mobile, we've always pushed to make something cool. We are a fun, hard-working, and dedicated family of experienced game developers. A lot of our employees have been here for over 10 years and we're growing our family even more!
