Embark on a Vengeful Journey with Will Ferrell in the ‘Strays’ Tie-In Game
In the upcoming R-rated comedy Strays from Universal Pictures, join Reggie (played by Will Ferrell) as he sets out on a revenge mission against his abusive owner, Doug (portrayed by Will Forte), who callously abandoned him. Before the theatrical release of this hilarious canine adventure, you can now become a part of Reggie’s quest to give Doug a taste of his own medicine in a brand-new tie-in game available on the film’s official website.
In this free game, players will take on the roles of Reggie and his talkative, quick-witted companion, Bug (played by Jamie Foxx). Your mission is to guide them through city streets and serene countryside, reliving some of the movie’s most memorable moments. Jump over obstacles scattered in your path or, for extra points, click or tap rapidly when encountering objects like couches or gnomes to humorously ‘hump’ them. Additionally, biting objects and catching rabbits will earn you more points, while pickups such as pizza, beer, and mushrooms will replenish Reggie and Bug’s health or grant them special powers like a double jump. The game will culminate either when your health runs out or when the dogs succeed in their comedic vengeance on Doug. At the end of the game, your biting prowess will be assessed and rewarded with an appropriate title.
The pixelated fun of this game will not only entertain eager viewers who’ve been waiting for Strays, which was postponed to the end of the summer, but it will also serve as a delightful reminder of the laughs to come in this raunchy comedy helmed by director Josh Greenbaum, known for Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar. Greenbaum aimed to create a hilarious parody of classic talking dog films like Milo and Otis and Homeward Bound while infusing the movie with its own emotional depth, thanks to the collaboration with producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Strays is sure to deliver both humor and heart, proving that dogs and humans aren’t so different after all.
Apart from the star power of Ferrell, Foxx, and Forte, the film boasts a talented ensemble cast for its canine revenge escapades. Isla Fisher, Randall Park, Josh Gad, Harvey Guillén, Brett Gelman, Rob Riggle, Jamie Demetriou, and Sofia Vergara add their comedic flair to the mix. Strays joins the ranks of this summer’s successful R-rated comedies, including No Hard Feelings, The Blackening, and Joy Ride.
Mark your calendars for August 18, when Strays premieres in theaters. In the meantime, explore the game trailer, aptly titled “Strays of Rage,” and get ready to embark on a howlingly funny adventure!
