The Life of a Stray Cat

“For a game about a homeless cat roaming a robot-filled cyber-punk world, Stray gets top marks from PETA for its accuracy”, says PETA in the description of the video.
The organization has earlier slammed several video games like Far Cry 6 and mario for portraying animals in ways that may promote cruelty towards them. For instance, Far Cry 6’s cockfights and Mario’s Tanooki follows came under criticism from the organization.
Stray launched recently on PS5, PS4 and Windows PC. The adventure indie game is developed by BlueTwelve Studio and published by Annapurna Interactive. The game features the story of a cat lost in a cyberpunk world full of robots who must return to their family. On the journey, he will face several challenges and dangers.
