Cat adventure Stray gets new gameplay walkthrough

By Heidi Nicholas,
Stray, the gorgeous cat adventure from developer BlueTwelve, just got a new video showing off a look at gameplay, as well as an early 2022 launch window.

"At its core, Stray is an adventure game. It tells the story of a cat who accidentally falls into a weird, mysterious city and his journey to return to his family," says BlueTwelve producer Swann Martin-Raget. "There’s quite a lot to find and learn about this forgotten city and the surprising characters who live in it! Not everything will be explained clearly, so it will be up to the most attentive and insightful players to figure out what exactly this place is, who these inhabitants and creatures are, and the story and purpose of this beguiling world in which we are immersed."

The gameplay walkthrough gives us a look at how that little cat will interact with the world around it, in both friendly encounters and against enemies. "The cat is definitely the star of the show in the game though, and it was important for us to show a glimpse of all the playful interactions that he can have with his environment," Martin-Raget adds. "Some of them are useful and will help solve puzzles as you progress, and some are just here because cats will be cats — and as most cat owners know painfully well, no sofa can be left unscratched."

Stray was initially expected to launch in 2021, but now has a release window of early 2022.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
