If you were watching the PlayStation 5 event and was an intrigued as I was with the trailer for STRAY then you might be happy to know that you won’t have to rush out and buy a PS5 on release to play it. It was really great of Sony to use their platform to highlight this unique game though
The game looks like it’s “CyberPunk with Cats” as you play a feline with a backpack who is lost, alone and separated from family. You must untangle an ancient mystery in a futuristic city to escape back home.
The decaying Cybercity is a beautiful backdrop for this adventure with its neon lights that offer a glow to the deep dark alleyways that are home to your character. It sets a tone of a true CyberPunk style seedy underbelly.
There’s more description of the game as well beyond what the trailer showed us.
See the world through the eyes of a stray and interact with the environment in playful ways. Be stealthy, nimble, silly, and sometimes as annoying as possible with the strange inhabitants of this foreign world.
Along the way, the cat befriends a small flying drone, known only as B12. With the help of this newfound companion, the duo try to find a way out.
Stray is developed by BlueTwelve Studio and will be available on PS5 and Windows 10 via Steam in 2021.
It’s quickly becoming one of the most anticipated games of 2021 which is why I’m giving it the nickname “CyberKitty 2077”.
