“Meow, meow” – there hasn’t been such a cute cat noise in a video game since “Nintendogs + Cats”. In “Stray” players control a lonely cat through a crazy cyberpunk world. The focus is on exploring the world, which was elaborately created in Unreal Engine 4.
Jumping and climbing are among our stray’s primary activities. The interactions in the adventure are undertaken with the help of a little android that the cat meets early in the adventure. B-12 is the name of the sidekick, who also plays an important role in the approximately 10-hour storyline and exudes a touch of R2-D2 charm.
Animations to purr
We start the linear adventure from the beginning in the evening and show the PC version. If you wish, we can compare it to the PS5 version. “Stray” is currently the most bookmarked game in June 2022 on Steam.
Blue Twelve Studio’s project started in 2015 under the codename “HK_Project”. The cat’s animations are among the highlights of the experience, ideally one to see for yourself. We were just as impressed with the horse animations in “Red Dead Redemption 2”.
The live stream starts at 7 p.m. and can be viewed via the video embedded above on YouTube or via Twitch.
“Stray” is available for Windows PCs via Steam, Playstation 4 and Playstation 5 and costs around 30 euros.
“heise plays” is the live stream format for PC and video games on heise online. Michael Wieczorek (@avavii) is dedicated to either the latest new releases, major updates for important games, or retro classics that might be celebrating their birthday.
This invitation link takes you to the heise online discord server. Current events from the IT world are discussed there and decisions are made about upcoming games and “heise plays” streams.
