It took me nearly precisely 5 hours to complete Stray, with a playstyle I’d describe as thorough however not obsessive. I received nearly all of its collectible secrets and techniques, solely missed a couple of of the hidden “reminiscences”, and accomplished all of the aspect duties for its robotic residents that I managed to seek out.
