A contemplative moment to share
Stray hit our screens recently, and nothing seems to be stopping BlueTwelve’s little cat, which continues to grow in popularity with gamers – casual or not. With nimble legs and a robotic sidekick, Stray’s four-legged hero offers a different gaming experience of what we can get used to. This puzzle game emphasizes exploration and observation, and features a simple story that will appeal to most players. Stray offers a relaxing and contemplative experienceand this reflects on its community, which takes the time to snoop everywhere, to decode the alphabet of the game, and above all to share their desires in terms of gameplay.
Recently we told you about mods to change the appearance of the protagonist. While some have fun replace the cat with other characters, like the famous Garfield or even a version of CJ from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas straight out of hell, others prefer embody their own furball by simply modifying the coat of the animal. But some modders went beyond visual changes, and managed to produce something to flesh out the gameplay a bit and make the game even more user-friendly, like the multiplayer mod that we are going to present to you:
