If you love cats, you'll really like this game.

To be released tomorrow, 19.07.22 and currently at 10% off on Steam (£23.99 / £21.59) this is the adventure of a ginger cat in a strange, dystopian world. It's brilliantly done, with the movement and mannerisms (and meows!) of a real cat, captured very well. Available on the PC, PS4 & PS5.

I'll be buying it on PC.

Stray is certainly a game that grabs your attention. The core concept of a cat exploring a dark Blade-Runner-esque post-apocalyptic world is intriguing, and the game’s vivid, ultra-detailed presentation is pretty astounding considering this game’s the work of a small first-time studio. It’s no surprise Stray immediately jumped to the top of many people’s “Most Anticipated Indies” list.

I gave up playing this game not too long after starting it, unfortunately. Not because it was poor, but because there's a section near the start that I can't get past where the red alien things jump all over our ginger protagonist and kill it. I think you're supposed to outrun them and shake them off when they jump, but after repeated attempts, I could never get through, so I gave up. I think games should have cheat modes for sticky areas like this. I feel like I wasted my money.
