Stray Cat Crossing is a game to behold. The game has a very unique style to it which I truly admire and adore though before I get too far into indulging into the aspects, I should go over some more of the facts first. The game was released on Aug 28, 2015, is available on steam for $2.99 usd, and falls under the the category of being a puzzle game with horror, but arguably charming through the characters and base aspects. The game itself is very story driven so I cannot (will not) talk much out of the purpose of spoiling anything. Without further ado, let’s jump in.

Game Play -

The game play around the entire game is almost entirely puzzle based to which I have to say there is a much well deserved pat on the back for the dev team and everyone involved with the release of the game. I really love how the puzzles interact with each other and progression to the over all story. This is different from other games that have puzzles because in most cases, puzzles are thrown in to continue on with the main plot and never showing up again, well not so much the case with this. I really do adore games that manage to put their puzzles as the main driving factor for the story.

Graphics -

The graphics are 16 bit custom made, from what I can tell, all of the graphics were very well done. I really like the dark colors mixed with the almost whimsical characters. The graphics prove to be dark and almost brooding in nature thought the slight touch of charm really helps to bring characters and the environment to life. I have to stop here because of spoilers.

Sound -

Let’s touch on the sound track, all tracks are custom made and the scores are beautiful, dissonant with itself with gentle and gradual resolves as the story progresses. With that being said, it’s no wonder by far my favorite songs contained within the OST folder have to be Skin Tight and Would Baby Like to Play.

Overview -

I’ll try to keep this quick and sweet, I liked the over all game. For me and for the spirit of the Halloween season, this is a very enjoyable game. I loved every minute of it, it was bold and unique. It also had one of the more unique story lines I’ve been able to play through. If you’re looking for a bit of a spook, this one will do the trick.
