Definitely one of the more original settings for a game we've heard in quite some time, you control a regular cat in a sort-of post-apocalyptic world, which is now filled with robots going about and living their day-to-day lives. Using platforms skills, puzzle solving and all of the abilities of a cat, you must find your way home as you adventure through this stunning beautiful game that feels like a mix of Cyberpunk 2077 and Inside.

Stray is available on PS5, PS4 and PC right now.
