Ahead of the release of Stray on July 19th, Stray has become the most wishlisted game on Steam and it has been fully Steam Deck Verified. Good news for Steam Deck fans and Linux desktop gamers, since it should work great on both.
Stray has been doing headlines for quite some time since the initial trailer that was shown by Sony, as it will be coming to the PlayStation 5 too. The Steam release is what we're interested in though of course and the publisher Annapurna Interactive noted on Twitter the Steam Deck compatibility. This is great to see for multiple reasons though, not only being Steam Deck Verified but the publisher and developer ensuring it's done before release. Hopefully more will do the same.
"Stray is a third-person cat adventure game set amidst the detailed, neon-lit alleys of a decaying cybercity and the murky environments of its seedy underbelly. Roam surroundings high and low, defend against unforeseen threats and solve the mysteries of this unwelcoming place inhabited by curious droids and dangerous creatures.
See the world through the eyes of a cat and interact with the environment in playful ways. Be stealthy, nimble, silly, and sometimes as annoying as possible with the strange inhabitants of this mysterious world."
You can pre-order on Steam. I'll be taking a look at how it runs at release.
