Reviews for cat adventure game ‘Stray’ are in…

It’s a safe bet to say the internet loves two things: Cats and video games. So why not combine the two?

Stray is a platformer (or catformer, if you will) where players control a cat through a futuristic cyberpunk city and it’s safe to say, it’s a firm favourite with feline fans.

It was released on 19 July 2022 and is free for PS Plus extra and premium members. Players have been quick to download the game and play with all of its features.
