Stray is the most wishlisted Steam game and it's Steam Deck Verified

By - | Views: 25,855

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.

Ha, I wonder if Liam should start a sister site called 'gamingondeck', as this site is slowly becoming that :P Not that I blame him, the Deck is rather awesome.

Here's a perfect example of this; my brother and I have started playing Children of Morta co-op. But with this freaking heatwave and the fact there is no fan in my office where my main game machine is (I do have a standing fan, but it's way too loud) so instead I switched to playing on my Steam Deck and could lay in bed with the ceiling fan on. It was wonderful! Also not sure how Valve fixed the shittiness that is bluetooth headphones so they work properly on the Steam Deck, but I've never had much luck getting them to work on any other Linux system...
Shouldn't it be "Annapurrna"?
Weird, this is the second cat adventure today.

Are you asking that because you don't know the person's answer or because you do know and you're waiting for their reply so you can give them a hard time?
Proton is great, but I don't think there's any point to razzing people for preferring Linux native.
Oh, it's only $30? I was expecting the usual AAA $60. Definitely wishlisted, and that bumped up the chances of me actually getting it quite a bit higher.
I've wishlisted it, but I'm not going to be an early adopter. I'll let others take that risk, and if the user reviews are positive, then I'll buy.

I would recommend all Nvidia users wait. Even if it's Steam Deck verified, that only guarantees it works on AMD.
