Well, the developers wanted to fully embrace this decision, trying to be as accurate as possible in the representation of the behavior of kittens on the screen.

In short, Stray is full of goodies for cat lovers And we decided to tell them in an article, because you may have missed some or because you haven’t bought the game yet, but this discovery may be an additional element of curiosity towards the BlueTwelve Studio title.

The protagonist of the cat Stray is so well able to harmonize, and even does so with an impressive number of different tones, that the developers have even included a trophy associated with the practice. However, there is another behavior that immediately catches the player’s attention, which is Get your nails done on different surfaces.

A normal behavior for cats but at the same time a source of anger and despair for those with decent furniture, this practice is repeated in the game that involves adaptive stimuli The DualSense controller, which applies a variable resistance and thus simulates the friction with the materials we scratch, be it a sofa or a carpet.

Another well-known situation for cats is to get into anything can Cardboard in hand, then recline inside and enjoy a little relaxation. It is not clear why this instinct, perhaps simply associated with the feeling of being covered on all sides and thus protected from any dangers, the fact is that even in Stray, this practice is used for gaming purposes.

In fact, it happens to deal with sequences stealthily Where you have to hide from the security drone sensors, quickly cross a part of the scenario before the beam of light hits us or take advantage of things behind you or inside to hide, like cardboard boxes.

Some of the good things in Stray are used in the gameplay, others are cute but end in themselves, and we have some interesting examples. The first is when the cat finds a file paper bag And he puts it on his head, remaining “blind” for a few seconds to the point of reversing the controls, so as to simulate the character’s inability to see where he’s heading.

However, there are also Easter eggs, such as balls Which are usually used to issue rewards at snack time, in case our cat is a bit lazy, or kittens’ ability to jump on things and make them fall: in the BlueTwelve Studio title, it happens with booksbut also with paint cans and even board game tiles, leaving competitors in despondency and expletives.
