It took me almost exactly five hours to complete Stray, with a style of play that I would describe as thorough but not obsessive. I got the majority of his collectible secrets, only missed a few of the hidden “souvenirs”, and completed all of the side tasks for his citizen bots that I managed to find. I definitely took my time enjoying some silly cat moments here and there too (including a few naps) so I wouldn’t say I was rushing through anything, but it probably wouldn’t take me longer. an hour or more to find everything else I missed.

My Stray read lasted just under 5 hours, 4:57 to be exact. I’m done with all but three of Stray’s main collectibles, the keepsakes you collect as you go. And I’ve completed some, but not all, of the side quests that several friendly bots present to you. My collectible loot was due to a good chunk of time spent wandering around, because BlueTwelve has created such a lovely world to explore. I talked to every bot I could, scratched a lot, but rarely slept, so most of the time I’m actively playing to complete the adventure, rather than, say, making a one hour nap to get a trophy. But expect that time to be added to my game clock soon enough.
