Is it Christmas? Well, in the world of printing, I usually work a month or two in advance. So, consider the new version of Edge as an early holiday gift. E365 offers a truly adventurous calendar full of tasty treats, especially the title game Stray.

Developed by BlueTwelve, a studio founded by two former Ubisoft graduates, the project started as a HK project before indie super-publisher Annapurna Interactive took over the French studio. Now, after several years of development, this unique action-adventure is doing really well.

The same cannot be said about the four-legged protagonist at the start of the demo. Rarely after a fall (cats have been shown not to do so). always He limps in a terribly convincing way. But thanks to convenient air conditioning with an intelligently optimized control system to make jumping platforms easy, it doesn’t take long for him to gallop over the pipes and make a quick jump to the roof. Well, it won’t feel like cat play after all if you keep missing jumps.

This dystopian urban jungle is unwelcome and welcome. You have to watch out for the worm-like creatures you see at the beginning of the game, but the robots that live there are a friendly bunch. You can communicate with them via a floating drone in your cat’s backpack, which will give you clues as to where to go next as you try to escape the city and reunite with your cat’s family.

But the main character of the show is Stray’s protagonist. to Knowing how it affects your cat), you can indulge in a bit of pranks while poking your whiskers everywhere you shouldn’t. Scattering bottles, scratching the couch, crouching in makeshift beds and taking naps. If all this seems to be true, it’s partly because this cat lover’s studio has gigabytes of data available for reference. Producer Swann Martin-Raget explains: A lot of to work.”

Elsewhere in the E365 there are plenty of other things that could add interest. First off, an ongoing update to Image & Form’s delicious, sleazy action-adventure The Gunk, not to mention the previews of Oxenfree 2, A Memoir Blue and Mesmerizing Backbeat: ’90s sets. The creative punk musical puzzler behind Osu! To Taka! Uendan. We spoke with one of the most influential figures in the media’s early days as Nolan Bushnell reminisced about his career to date, and he spoke with the leaders of Montreal’s burgeoning development scene.

When the temperature drops, what better candidate for creating a broader range of features than 11 Bit Studios’ dystopian city-building/survival game Frostpunk? And for something more exciting, take a look at Genshin Impact’s fresh approach to open world RPGs in Time Extend.

In the meantime, the review section includes Edge verdicts for Metroid Dread, Far Cry 6, Back 4 Blood, and Lost Judgment, along with real surprises that come in smaller packages, including ingenious platform puzzles, as they often do for Christmas Elec A fascinating unboxing of Head and Witch Beam. That said, the E365 is the perfect companion for warming up on long winter evenings, and it’s on sale now.

The Edge 365 is currently available in UK stores and can also be ordered from: magazine direct. To purchase your edition digitally, go to: Apple’s App Store or pocket mac.

It’s Christmas? Well, in the world of print we do tend to work a month or two in advance. Consider the new issue of Edge an early festive gift, then: E365 offers a veritable advent calendar’s worth of delicious treats, not least of which is our cover game, Stray. 
Developed by BlueTwelve, a studio founded by two former Ubisoft alumni, it began life as HK Project, before indie super-publisher Annapurna Interactive took the French studio under its wing. Now, after several years of development, this unique action-adventure is shaping up really rather well. 
Not that the same can be said for its four-legged protagonist as our demo starts: after a rare fall (it turns out cats don’t always land on their feet) he’s limping in an upsettingly convincing way. Yet it’s not long before he’s scampering across pipes and leaping nimbly up to rooftops via handy air-conditioning units, all care of a smartly streamlined control system that makes platforming a breeze. Well, it wouldn’t feel like you were playing a cat if you kept missing jumps, after all.

This dystopian urban jungle is both forbidding and inviting: you need to be wary of the scuttling bug-like creatures you catch glimpses of in the early game, but the robots that populate the place are a friendly bunch. Via a floating drone that lives in the cat’s backpack, you can communicate with them, and they’ll give you clues about where you should head next as you look to escape the city and reunite with your feline family. 
But it’s Stray’s protagonist that is the star of the show: beyond indulging your curiosity (though not too much: you know what that does to cats) as you poke your whiskers everywhere you shouldn’t, you can indulge in a bit of mischief: scattering bottles, scratching sofas and even curling up on a makeshift bed and having a catnap. If it all looks convincingly real, that’s partly because this studio of cat-lovers has had many gigabytes’ worth of data to refer to. As producer Swann Martin-Raget explains, “The helpful thing is that it looks like the Internet was made for posting cat pictures and videos so we do have a lot to work from.”

There’s plenty more to sink your claws into elsewhere in E365: a progress update on Image & Form’s delightfully gloopy action-adventure The Gunk, for starters, not to mention previews of Oxenfree 2, A Memoir Blue and the fascinating Backbeat: a ‘90s-set funk music-powered puzzler from some of the creative talent behind Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan. We talk to one of the most influential figures in the medium’s early years, as Nolan Bushnell reflects on his career to date, and chat with the leading lights of Montreal’s burgeoning development scene. 
As the temperature drops, what better candidate for an expansive Making Of feature than 11 Bit Studios’ dystopian city-builder/survival game Frostpunk? And if you’re in the mood for something more upbeat, Time Extend has a look at Genshin Impact’s fresh approach to open-world RPGs. 
Our review section, meanwhile, includes the Edge verdicts on Metroid Dread, Far Cry 6, Back 4 Blood and Lost Judgment, though the real surprises – as is so often the case at Christmas – come in smaller packages, including the ingenious platform-puzzler Elec Head and Witch Beam’s captivating tidy-’em-up Unpacking. In other words, E365 makes for the perfect companion to curl up with on these long winter evenings, and it’s on sale right now.  
Edge 365 is in UK shops now, and can also be ordered for delivery via Magazines Direct. To buy the issue digitally, head to Apple’s App Store or PocketMags.
