Wait, I can now play as 'Garfield' in Stray?

Stray has been the breakout game of the summer, despite not featuring a single space marine, decapitation or battle pass. In terms of innovative design there's enough in Stray to inspire, and that's despite only being able to play as an orange cat… but that's changing.

Despite being a visual tour de force developer BlueTwelve cut one corner – you can't customise your kitty. This is at odds with the trend in game design and indeed the push for NFT games that offer players the chance to tailor their experience. This is, of course, until now. PC games are modding Stray to enable you to play as a variety of cats – sorry PS5 owners, you're not invited.
