Dark Horses of 2022 - Best Upcoming Obscure Games That May Surprise Us

Every year brings productions whose success is prophesied long before their release. But in this article, we talk about their opposites. What gaming surprises await in 2022?

Stray

  1. Genre: action adventure game
  2. Release date: May 2022
  3. Developer: Blue Twelve Studio
  4. Why it can surprise? We play a cat in cyberpunk world...

Stray has been a sensation on social media from the very first announcement. Well, I'm not a huge cat lover, but I have to admit that the Blue Twelve studio have come up with quite an intriguing game. Few games have us control anything that doesn't at least resemble a human.

There are no more people in the post-apocalyptic world – robots have replaced them. Among them lives our main character – a kitten, who has been separated from its family, so its goal is to find it. Watching from third-person perspective, we will be solving environmental puzzles, jumping on various objects (as cats do) and facing enemies from time to time. A friendly flying drone will help us. The whole thing impresses with the animation of the cat's movement and the visual setting that perfectly harmonizes with the cyberpunk world.

Started writing about games on the SquareZone website. Later, he wrote and managed the non-existent PSSite.com, and currently runs his own blog about games. He hasn't yet written a text that he would be 100% satisfied with. He started his adventure with games at the age of 3, when he managed to convince his father to buy a C64 computer. The love for electronic entertainment awakened by Flimbo's Quest blossomed during the first adventures with Heroes of Might & Magic, reaching its peak after purchasing the first PlayStation. As he grew older, he had more encounters with Nintendo portable consoles, and also returned to the PC as an additional gaming platform. He collects games and is a fan of emulation.
