“Stray gamers are swapping in their very own cats”
The heartfelt cat mods are off to a fantastic begin
Whereas Stray has a set-in-stone search for its adventurous orange tabby, for those who’re enjoying the sport on PC, there are some convincing mods to change the look of the “purr-tagonist.”
Chris already highlighted a humorous Garfield mod, and Eric nudged me to say a cursed “joke mod” that squishes Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas star CJ right into a cat-shaped physique. After all of the laughs, it’ll be good to have some practical alternate coats. It’s early days on Nexus Mods, however Stray followers have already replicated their very own cats within the recreation.
Poking across the website, I discovered Stray cat mods for a tuxedo, calico, grey tabby, tortie, siamese, and even a sphynx. A creator named Hacktix uploaded some commissioned mods primarily based on different gamers’ actual cats, and their very own, Jessy. My coronary heart is melting.
One other good one: Antonio El Gato, from modder Angeloloo — it’s “a texture edit of the primary cat however as an alternative it’s my cat Antonio.” And sure, the mod web page features a few real-world pictures for comparability. The healthful ranges are off the charts with this recreation.
Choose of the Litter, a multi-coat mod from SpaceD0lphin, has some pretty hand-painted designs. I’m positive lots of people might be on the lookout for a basic black cat.
Putting in these mods ought to be as easy as extracting the recordsdata and dropping them into the sport’s set up listing in your PC. (steamsteamappscommonStrayHk_projectContentPaks, for example.) I’m excited to see how the scene grows from right here.
Certainly one of my favourite components of reviewing Stray on Destructoid was seeing readers share a bunch of heartwarming cat pics — y’all flooded the feedback with the absolute best show-and-tell. Since then, I’ve seen disappointment that the sport lacks customization, and whereas I’d have a tough time enjoying by means of this often tense, perilous, monster-filled recreation with a cat resembling our personal little troublemaker, I do get the enchantment.
Mods or no mods, it positive is good to rally round a recreation like Stray, isn’t it?
