Stray, the game that lets you play as a cat, has landed on the Mac App Store for US$30. It is compatible with Apple's MetalFX and will easily run on most MacBooks.

Apple's Game Porting Toolkit aims to bring some AAA titles and indies to MacBooks. At launch, it was confirmed that Stray would be playable on Apple Silicon-powered hardware. Annapurna Interactive has officially heralded its arrival on MacOS, and one can purchase it off the Mac App Store for US$30. Stray was launched for PC and consoles in 2022.

The game is set in a dystopian world populated by robots, where you play as a stray cat that gets separated from its pack and lands in a subterranean city. For the most part, it is a 3D platformer with stealth and "combat" sections peppered in along with rudimentary lore. Stray doesn't give you nearly as much freedom as one would hope from a cat-themed game, but at least you get to knock stuff off ledges.

Stray isn't very graphically intensive, meaning it should run fine on all Apple Silicon-powered MacBooks (US$799 on Best Buy). The game isn't particularly long, with the campaign taking about six hours. Completionists could stretch that up to twelve. Unfortunately, it isn't replayable because of its linear story, but it's well worth the $30.
