Cat game Stray knocks things off shelves for Mac users coming soon

Hey Mac owners, you no longer have to dual boot from Windows to check out Stray!  Publisher Annapurna Interactive and developer BlueTwelve Studio has announced that the game is coming to Mac with a whole bevy of Apple-powered improvements.  Let’s hear it from the team:

Taking advantage of the breakthrough performance of Apple silicon and powerful software technologies like MetalFX Upscaling that accelerates graphics performance with high quality visuals, Stray delivers a smooth and immersive gaming experience across the entire Apple silicon lineup — from the incredible desktop lineup, including Mac mini, iMac and Mac Studio, to Apple’s powerful Mac laptops — MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.

In Stray, players take the role of a stray cat who must untangle an ancient mystery to escape a long-forgotten cybercity amidst the detailed neon-lit alleys and the murky environments of its seedy underbelly. Along the way, the cat befriends a small flying drone, known only as B-12. With the help of this newfound companion, the duo must find a way out.

Stray is an award-winning game, including Best Independent Game and Best Debut Indie Game at The Game Awards, PlayStation Game of the Year at the Golden Joystick Awards, Best Debut at the Game Developers Choice Awards and Most Innovative Gameplay at the Steam Awards, as well as more than 20 nominations that include EE Game of the Year, Best Game and Debut Game at the BAFTA Awards and Game of the Year at the D.I.C.E. Awards. The game is also available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam.

You might recall that we loved the little cat game, with Lead Editor David Burdette suggesting we “play it meow” in his review (with a bonus picture of his own kitty, Obi-Wan).  Here’s what else he had to say:

A delightful journey behind the whiskers of a fuzzy feline friend, Stray is a wonderful game for both cat enthusiast and indie enjoyer alike. The story, while simple, is enchanting with each new discovery – with some that may just make you shed a tear. Gameplay doesn’t break new ground, but feels unique from the perspective of a cat, which is handled purrfectly. Stray is incredible, and one you should be playing right meow.

Congratulations to the Mac crowd — this is one you’ll want to add to your virtual shelf.
