Full length Catzilla graphics benchmark video has to be seen to be believed

Lasers! Giant cats! Wub wub!

The director of quirky PlayStation Network game Datura has released the full length video from his new project - and it has to be seen to be believed.

Catzilla was described to Eurogamer by Datura director Michal "Bonzaj" Staniszewski as "an exercise before future challenges". It's a benchmark designed to check your computer's graphics capabilities that doubles as an animated short. That features giant cats who shoot lasers out of their eyes. With dubstep.

Staniszewski, who works with the Polish demoscene group Plastic, told us the video has "spread widely without anyone noticing it's a PC benchmark".

"It just brings so much fun to people," he said. "I will remember that when designing our next game."

Earlier this month the beta of the Catzilla benchmark was released. You can download it from the official site.

The Catzilla benchmark video in all its glory is below.
