My cat adventures are officially over… for now. I beat Stray! I still need to go back and find some missing memories and some other achievements/trophies, but I finished the game AND had fun trying out a couple of mods:
One of the mods you can get from Stray’s Nexus is photo mode! Which is something that should have shipped with the game. It’s a little buggy, and I did crash the game a couple of times, but that only seemed to occur if I Alt-Tabbed one too many times. This mod alone will make my next playthrough of the game all the more worthwhile! Now I can go through the game pretending to be tourist cat. 😛
I also tested the split screen co-op mod. It looks really nice on a big 4K TV! But it’s even buggier than photo mode; If you walk into an area you’re not supposed to the second controller will stop functioning partially, and only Player 1 has the robot and HUD button prompts. It was fun to play with, but this mod still needs some time to mature. It has really been nice seeing all of the different mods popping onto the Nexus for Stray! Now if someone could just add a level editor so people could make their own platforming puzzles that would be purr-fect.
One of these days I’ll play through it again, perhaps when my Steam Deck finally arrives! Until then it’s back to fighting off the rest of my gaming backlog! 😛
