About

Lost, alone and separated from family, a stray cat must untangle an ancient mystery to escape a long-forgotten city.

Stray is a third-person cat adventure game set amidst the detailed, neon-lit alleys of a decaying cybercity and the murky environments of its seedy underbelly. Roam surroundings high and low, defend against unforeseen threats and solve the mysteries of this unwelcoming place inhabited by curious droids and dangerous creatures.

See the world through the eyes of a cat and interact with the environment in playful ways. Be stealthy, nimble, silly, and sometimes as annoying as possible with the strange inhabitants of this mysterious world.

Along the way, the cat befriends a small flying drone, known only as B-12. With the help of this newfound companion, the duo must find a way out.

Stray is developed by BlueTwelve Studio, a small team from the south of France mostly made up of cats and a handful of humans.

Stray reviews and comments

Great short story game. Nothing mind blowing but very pleasant to play.
«Sit back and relax»
Atmosphere in this game was on a whole other level. Design, audio and visual, was topnotch and made me fall in love with the game. Short but sweet.

I think that this is the game that I enjoyed the most while playing it, even though I finished the whole story in 2 days.

Bravo 👏  for the developers of the game. It's amazing how they implemented all the physics of a cat in this game.

It was nearly perfect! Stray was a short but fun game that never got boring. The only downside really was it`s length being that it only took me about 5 hours to complete it and I would have loved to see more of certain characters!

This is an absolute chef’s kiss of a game. Great in most every way. Get it, play it, enjoy it.

Atmosphere in this game was on a whole other level.
Design, audio and visual, was pretty good.
Short but sweet.
Careful when trying to go for 100% as there is an achievement so hard/based on luck that can ruin the painting of the game "Can't cat-ch me".

Been waiting for this little gem back since back before the hype, back when no one really knew about it. And let me tell you, I'm only a few hours in but it doesn't disappoint, not one bit.

This is generally what you'd call a "game as an experience". As with most such games, the gameplay is simple, there's no HUD and the control scheme is very minimalistic.The immersive experience you get is all in your surroundings and the indirect atmospheric narrative. The gameplay itself is 100% prompt-oriented, which is ideal for this types of games - you get some variety without losing immersion. The pace is very friendly and relaxing, there's a lot to explore and a lot of fun cat shenanigans to occupy yourself with.

That said, the only real problem so far is that the level design occasionally struggles with implementing a proper vertical gameplay in these atmospheric surroundings. What I mean by that is that sometimes you clearly see that you should be 100% able to climb a wall or a building using the very prominent ledges and objects and whatnot but the game just won't let you. An immersive vertical gameplay is never easy to implement, sure, but some games actually pull this off - take both Dying Light games. So that's about the only somewhat serious problem with this game.

Sometimes it can be a bit hard to determine which way is going to progress the story, and which one may contain secrets, and there are hard-locks in place that prevent you from backtracking - always a nasty combo, although a very common one, sadly.

Technically speaking, the game runs pretty smooth, although expect some heavy FPS losses at some points - the game might get optimized at some point, but so far it's not ideal, although it's not really that much of a problem. So far I've only ran into a few jerky animations and that's about it on the bugs side of things.

I'd say that if you're a fan of cats or a fan of this sort of games - definitely check this one out, cause my review contains A LOT of nitpicks and surely fails to give the whole experience enough credit.
