    What I really love about Stray is the way the world treats you. None of the robots know what a cat is—they’ve never seen one before. You trip them up in the street, ruin their board games, and rub up against their legs, but for the most part, they forget you’re even there at all. Yours is a largely thankless task. But what do you care? You’re a cat. As the characters embrace and cheer, or break down and cry, and when the game comes to its ultimate conclusion, you are just a cat, who saunters off into the night, indifferent to it all.

    Stray is a fairly short game with a few notable flaws. Still, it's a joy to experience the wonders of playing as a cat in a marvelously designed world.

    Stray manages to straddle the glee of playing a roguish feline with an absorbing sci-fi story and gorgeously detailed landscapes.

    A tribute to the true cat lovers. Any gamer who loves cats is bound to fall in love with the great details of the cat looking just like real ones. But when you turn the eyes to where cats do not exist, you will face simple, linear game structure made out of monotonous puzzle and short volume.

    Overall, Stray surprised me in how well it wears its features and themes on its sleeve and how well crafted said features are. It’s a game created for cat lovers by cat lovers, but with features and mechanics everyone can enjoy irrespective of age or pet preference. It’s just too bad that the journey you’ll go on, while memorable, is incredibly short, at only about eight hours long.

    Stray is a very good surprise. It is not a simple game where you play as a cat but it's a poetic, touching and exciting adventure.

    Stray is interesting but it needs some details to be the "perfect" game. It has excellent graphics but its monotony makes it boring and the solution of puzzles is quite basic. It will give you hours of play only if you like to see a cat jumping from one side to another.

    The game could feel a little bit short but with how the story and the world is set up I feel satisfied with the length, I enjoyed every single aspect of this game, and I never saw anything that I thought could be improved. Stray is a 10 out of 10 for me.

    This is a unique experience, and with how similar videogames are modernly this really stands out more than anything that has come out in years.
