Cat Daddy Games
About the Company
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.
