Blue Twelve Studios recently created “Stray,” a video game where players take on the role of a stray cat wandering around in a futuristic city. Now the studio has revealed that the cat in “Stray” is actually based on a real cat named Murtaugh.

the game studio team found Murtaugh in the streets near the city of Montpellier, France under a car. Now the studio co-founders, Viv and Koola, have taken Murtaugh in and decided to make a video game based on their stray cat. So it’s likely that this cat helped authenticate the game so it feels as realistic as possible.
