Publisher Annapurna Interactive and developer BlueTwelve announced a release date for Stray, their cyberpunk, stealth, puzzle-hybrid game.
Stray is launching on July 19th across Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
As previously reported, Stray is a stealth game with puzzle elements, where players control a cat and a drone. You’ll be exploring high and low the city as both parties, uncovering the mysteries of the city.
In this trailer, we are shown the cat prancing about in an alleyway of the city, when a nearby citizen flees inside its house, or more appropriately, it’s hole in a wall. More citizens flee as the cat continues on. We see more of the city, a train station, and another alleyway covered in what seems to be bio-organic goop on the walls, with standard video game bug eggs scattered all over.
Later we see said bugs now out of the eggs, attacking out feline hero, along with enemy drones. A robot by the name Guardian seems to help you along the way too, taking you on a boat ride with him in a water infested area.
You can watch the gameplay trailer below.
Here’s a rundown on the 2020-announced game:
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 nothing but unassuming droids and dangerous creatures.
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, a small team from south of France mostly made of cats and a handful of humans.
