Since its release on July 19, stray continues to receive accolades and very good reviews from both players and the press. So good in fact, that the game of BlueTwelve Studio and Annapurna Interactive finds itself rated higher on Steam thanElden Ringthe latest – and global success – of FromSoftware.
Less than 1000 negative reviews
Stray breaks records in terms of positive reviews. The game counts almost 40,000 positive ratings on Steam at the time of writing this article, and it is unheard of, especially in such a short time. Only 905 people have given a negative evaluation to Stray, and even their comment contains positive, in spite of many “but”.
In addition, just 5 days after its release, the little cat from BlueTwelve Studio and Annapurna Interactive is embodied by more than 33,000 concurrent players per day. To push the numbers even further, Stray has over 50,000 concurrent players the day after its releaseon July 20, an additional 15,000 concurrent players compared to Elden Ring that day.

Why such an interest ?
While there’s no doubt that playing as a cute little ginger cat appealed to a lot of people, there are a lot of criteria that make this a solid game, and the excellent ratings are fully justified.
After all, we must not forget that Stray is one, even THE only game of summer 2022which he immediately made people talk about him when his trailer was released in 2020, which only costs 27€, and that it is a short and accessible game.
Of course, playing the most popular animal on the internet has brought players from other backgrounds, even people who are not very interested in video games in general, but Stray’s interest lies in his nature. contemplative and immersive game with simple gameplay and without great difficulty, where Elden Ring is very demanding and often obscure.
In fact, it doesn’t really make sense to compare the two games, because they’re simply light years apart in every way, and it’s completely legitimate that a lot of nobody likes to relax and travel, as others prefer a challenge.
In any case, this is a great achievement for BlueTwleve, who can be very proud of their poti chat.
