The publisher of new hit video game Stray has partnered with several charities to raise money for real life homeless cats. I’m not crying, you are.
If you’ve somehow avoided the constant promos and viral videos of pets acting up at television screens, Stray is finally out on PlayStation and PC.
Published by Annapurna, the game puts the player in the furry pads of a cat as it traverses a dystopian cyberpunk city in search of its family. You can meow, elegantly jump between rooftops, and do that weird claw thing on carpets.
There’s way more to the whole experience, which has received pretty decent reviews across the board, but that’s the gist.
As though giving us the chance to fulfil the impossible dream of living out adventures as a cat wasn’t enough already, Annapurna is using the game’s hype to help generate funds and awareness for real life strays.
The publisher has partnered with several cat charities including the Nebraska Humane Society (NHS… not the UK health service) and the UK-based Cats Protection, which both aim to find homes and caring owners for our wild feline friends.
