The heartfelt cat mods are off to an incredible begin
While Stray has a set-in-stone search for its adventurous orange tabby, for those who’re taking part in the game on PC, there are some convincing mods to change the look of the “purr-tagonist.”
Chris already highlighted a humorous Garfield mod, and Eric nudged me to say a cursed “joke mod” that squishes Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas star CJ into a cat-shaped body. After all of the laughs, it’ll be good to have some life like alternate coats. It’s early days on Nexus Mods, however Stray followers have already replicated their very own cats within the game.
Poking across the web site, I discovered Stray cat mods for a tuxedo, calico, gray tabby, tortie, siamese, and even a sphynx. A creator named Hacktix uploaded some commissioned mods primarily based on different gamers’ actual cats, and their very own, Jessy. My coronary heart is melting.
Another good one: Antonio El Gato, from modder Angeloloo — it’s “a texture edit of the main cat but instead it’s my cat Antonio.” And sure, the mod web page features a few real-world photographs for comparability. The healthful ranges are off the charts with this game.
Pick of the Litter, a multi-coat mod from SpaceD0lphin, has some beautiful hand-painted designs. I’m certain lots of people shall be searching for a traditional black cat.
Installing these mods should be as simple as extracting the information and dropping them into the game’s set up listing in your PC. (steamsteamappscommonStrayHk_projectContentPaks, as an illustration.) I’m excited to see how the scene grows from right here.
One of my favourite components of reviewing Stray on Destructoid was seeing readers share a bunch of heartwarming cat pics — y’all flooded the feedback with the very best show-and-tell. Since then, I’ve seen disappointment that the game lacks customization, and whereas I’d have a tough time taking part in by means of this often tense, perilous, monster-filled game with a cat resembling our personal little troublemaker, I do get the enchantment.
Mods or no mods, it certain is sweet to rally round a game like Stray, isn’t it?
