I am Speed Trophy
I am Speed
Complete the game in less than 2 hours.Argh! Speedruns! Why oh why! Thankfully, the Stray speedrun isn’t too bad at all. Completing an 8-hour game in 2-hours might seem impossible, but honestly, it’s not at all. Obviously don’t attempt this on the first run-through, as Stray is meant to be an exploration game, one you take your time with and hunt out all the secrets. Plus, on your second run you’ll know all the solutions to every puzzle, you’ll know your way through the factory without being detected. You’ll know everything. And even if you forget, don’t sweat it, there’s plenty of wiggle room. A good run, for instance, you’ll do in 1 hour 30 minutes, meaning there’s 30 minutes of wiggle room for failures, moments where you forget and wrong routes, etc.
One of the biggest tips is to always keep on the move. For instance, during Midtown when you have to move a couple of robots back onto the beaten path and they’ll take a while to walk there, use that downtime to set yourself up for other things that you need to do. i.e. using the example above: Earlier in the level when have to find Clementine, speak to Simon in the Residency to initiate the tape side-quest. Then, knock the cameras out on the way up to Clementine. Two birds, one stone. Then, when you have to get the Worker Helmet and Worker Jacket, you can nip in, put the tape in, then go and wake the delivery guy from the bar. While he’s on his way to the bar, go back and get the Worker Jacket, now that the shop worker has moved, and then run back to the hat shop and hopefully the delivery worker is just turning up.
I’d also recommend tapping as opposed to holding it when going vertically, as sometimes the game will drop you down instead of up when doing this, and that can cost valuable seconds.
Like I said though, it’s easy. You have loads of time, don’t sweat it. And if you do struggle and forget a puzzle solution, fear not, pause it and look it up. We’ll likely have the solution here on the site. Check the bottom of the page for a list of all our guides and walkthroughs.
