Although Stray is a fairly short game, it is a lot of fun to play it and play as a cat. Many will recognize their own pets in the main character. The cat has the same mimics and behaviors as a real cat, which is quite comical in itself. The mysterious atmosphere of the game leads us to reflect on what happened in the past. The game is quite light, but there are a few sequences that could scare younger children. However, both teenagers and adults will undoubtedly appreciate it.
