How to Make Every Jump in Stray the Cat Video Game

    Stray is a third-person cat adventure game that’s available on the PlayStation 4 and 5 and PC (via Steam store), and is very popular amongst streamers. There’s not many games out there where you get to play in game world as a cat and completely interact with the environment and solve all kinds of puzzles the way that Stray presents.

    One of the main points of the game is to venture the surroundings, both high and low, and that’s going to require a LOT of jumping. Fortunately, the game developers have enabled it so you can play and never miss a jump – no matter how tricky it might look. They’ve even made it so a button prompt will display over any place you can jump to.

    Continue with the guide below to learn how to make every jump automatically and how to enable or disable the button prompt for jumping in the game Stray.
