Ever wanted to play a stray cat in a mysterious cyberpunk world, one inhabited by robots? Course you have! Well, you’re in luck, because that’s exactly what Stray is, the latest Annapurna Interactive game, developed by BlueTwelve Studios. Stray, in essence, is an exploration game. An adventure game, where you wander throughout this gritty urban cyberpunk city trying to find your way home, all whilst also trying to uncover the mysterious world you find yourself in and the origins of said city. Puzzles, chases sequences, exploration, Stray and its world is a great place to spend 10 hours, one that you’ll hopefully get lost in.
How to Play:
Right, let’s talk about the best way to play to play Stray, because there is absolutely definitely a correct way to play this game. Because of the speed run trophy (I am Speed ) , that automatically means you’re going to have to do 2 playthroughs. However, these playthroughs will be drastically different. Your first playthrough will be your exploration playthrough, where you take your time, grab the collectibles, work out all the puzzles, and solve every little mystery you can.
Then, when you’ve had your leisurely 8-hour playthrough where you do everything you can do, the next playthrough is your speedrun playthrough. One that will likely take you around 1 hour 30 to 1 hour 45 (meaning you have 15 minutes to spare, hopefully). And that’s it. Below we’ll walk you through what to do and what you need in every chapter, so keep an eye on the Road Map, in conjunction with the array of guides we've created.
Stray is absolutely chock full of collectible trophies and various things that you’ll need to do on your journey, especially if you want to get 23/25 trophies on your first run.
Below is a list of the levels, with what you need to do in each level, whether that’s collectibles or specific tasks. There are 3 trophies that will require you to do specific events all while fulfilling specific criteria, so keep an eye out for them. That said, these events can be done using Chapter Select if you miss them first time around, but it’s best to use the “restart checkpoint” if you screw it up at all than save going back to do them. The trickiest trophy of the lot actually comes pretty early on in the game (Can't Cat-ch Me ), in the Dead City chapter.
There is 1 thing that I really have to stress though: MAKE SURE YOU SCRATCH SOMETHING IN EVERY CHAPTER. There is a guide for the Territory trophy below, but this will perhaps be the hardest thing to track. So follow the guide and do it as you go. If you don’t get it at the end, you’ve missed one: the hardest to miss being the ones in the Sewers and the Jail, so try there first.
But, if you use the below (which I’ve tried to put in some kind of rough order - except for the Memories, which I dropped at the bottom of the list for the most part), along with the trophy guides themselves, and a ton of individual walkthroughs we’ve made, you’ll get the platinum pretty easily. And have fun while doing it!

There’s also a few general trophies that you’ll likely pop throughout as well. Those are:
A Little Chatty - Meow 100 times.
Cat-a-Pult - Jump 500 times.
No More Lives - Die 9 times.
If you miss anything after you've done your first play through, you can use Chapter Select when you’ve finished the game. For one-off events you don’t need to finish the level. But for collectibles you absolutely have to finish that chapter for them to count. I’m not 100% sure whether the Badges run by the same logic as the collectibles like the Memories, but just finish the level just to be safe.
And once you’ve done all that… it’s speed run time! Time to grab the I am Speed trophy, and round out that platinum! Good luck!
