Gifts Await Print

In the surprise hit Japanese app Neko Atsume (Kitty Collector), the player uses golden and silver fish as currency to purchase goodies to entice cats to his or her virtual yard. The cats then leave fish behind as a token of their thanks. The "gifts await" bubble is the notification that cats have visited and left treats behind. (Yes, it's pretty dumb, but we love it.) Some have speculated that the calming, upbeat music, cuteness of the cats themselves, or even their little x-shaped buttholes are the driving force behind the game's popularity—but to us, this simple phrase is everything.

And also the buttholes. Oh, those buttholes.

The purposefully-pixellated bubble sits on a soft pink ground in this 4 x 6" digital print in a grey Ikea Ribba frame.
