You’ll soon be able to battle Doom’s hordes of hellish demons as the cat from Stray thanks to an awesome upcoming mod.
As games go, Stray and Doom couldn’t be more different. One is a fast-paced, brutal FPS where you shoot waves of enemies from hell; the other is an adorable adventure game that puts you in the paws of a fluffy orange feline. Now these two worlds are ready to collide with a mod that takes the stray cat out of his cyberpunk city and into the world of id Software’s iconic FPS.
The mod sees the usual shooter protagonist Doomguy replaced by the feline, who brought some heavy weapons to show enemies who’s boss. The action takes place in third person, and as the video below shows, this kitty can take care of himself, blasting through the forces of Hell before settling down for a nap surrounded by slain enemies. You don’t have to wait long to try this promising mod, as it will be released tomorrow (July 27).
In other Doom news, series creator John Romero has confirmed that he’s working on an entirely new FPS, but don’t expect any more Doom or Quake, as his latest project is a shiny new IP. It will be made with Unreal Engine 5, and the rest remains a mystery, as Romero Games says that “it’s too early to share any other information” about the game.
As for Stray, we recommend that you check it out if you haven’t already. Our Stray review describes it as “a phenomenal, albeit compact, feline adventure.” Not only humans like the game; It also does well with cats, but, unsurprisingly, it’s not as popular with dogs. Street modders are also mixing things up in weird and wonderful ways, with some replacing the game’s red-haired tabby star with a virtual version of their own feline friend.
