Third-person cat adventure gameStray is a single-player adventure game developed by BlueTwelve Studio and published by Annapurna Interactive. The game centers around a stray cat that has been separated from its family. As the stray, you must untangle an ancient mystery and escape the decaying cybercity. You can roam the neon-lit alleys and murky environments of the city’s seedy underbelly. However, you must also fend for yourself against all kinds of robots.
Big world, small characters
Stray puts you in the paws of a special feline living in a cyberpunk future. The cat is accompanied by a robot named B12. Together, you will need to go to the heart of the cyber city and solve an age-old mystery. The graphics of the game has taken inspiration from Kowloon Walled City—including the neon-lit sky-high buildings and narrow roads. It'll immediately become obvious that humans have been obliterated from the earth.
The game is played from a third-person perspective but you get to follow the cat wherever it goes. This means you get to sneak under cars and walk on rooftops while the inhabitants below are not aware of your presence. You can catch the attention of bots by meowing endlessly at them. Defending yourself is possible whenever unforeseen threats come your way, as this long-forgotten city has become inhabited by unassuming droids and dangerous creatures.
Moving around the city requires you to be strategically stealthy, nimble, silly, and sometimes annoying if you want to get ahead of the strange inhabitants of this world. As a small cat running around, you can enter all kinds of spaces or environments discretely. In addition, the droids will not pay attention to you even if you’re sitting right beside them. The difficulty of this is having extremely limited speech and limited mobility.
