We told you in December that Cambridge video game maker Fire Hose Games was scrapping the traditional studio business model to become an incubator for indie developers. Well, Fire Hose has signed up its first developer, Chris Chung, whose gaming project is called Catlateral Damage.

According to Chung’s description of a demo version, the game is “a first-person destructive cat simulator, where your goal is to knock as many of your owner’s possessions onto the ground as possible. Feel what it’s like to be a mischievous cat and show your human who’s boss by eradicating his material belongings.”

Essentially, Chung has combined two of the Internet’s great pastimes — cats and breaking stuff — into one game.

A Fire Hose spokesman described Catlateral Damage as “bonkers fun” and said the studio is “ridiculously excited to have Chris on.”
