So while exploring the big cyberpunk city, Stray's cat can die, but it is only a temporary and is not gruesome. There are instances where the cat does get injured during the story, which may be difficult for players to view, but the cat does always end up back in good health eventually.
Yes. The cat can get hurt and die in multiple instances throughout Stray's eight to 10-hour story.
Now, with the launch of Stray, players are curious about the same thing, as illustrated in a recent Fanbyte article. In fact, ahead of the publication of Inverse's review, I received a message from someone asking about whether the cat dies at the end of the game. Thankfully, they do not.
Leaving behind the friends he made, and those he lost, the cat moves forward into the unknown. Stray does not reunite the cat with his family in the last moments of the game, leading our hero on yet another journey.
However, B-12's sacrifice pays off. The city opens up, which not only allows the Companions to see the sky for the first time but soon destroys the mutant Zurks and robotic Sentinels that hounded the cat earlier in the game. Stray ends with the cat finally leaving the city, presumably to rejoin its friends.
The cat weeps for B-12 by curling up next to the drone as he drops dead on the ground. B-12's sacrifice, nonetheless, is worthwhile. The city expands, eradicating the mutant Zurks and mechanical Sentinels who had earlier pursued the cat and giving the Companions their first glimpse of the sky.
As you explore the backstreets and districts of a mysterious city of robots, Stray has its fair share of sad moments. Stray easily elicits a lot of emotion throughout the game - joy, wonder, tension, and even sadness.
Stray has one ending, and it cannot be influenced. Optional quests like collecting all of the Sheet Music, energy drink cans, and even memories won't give you an additional cutscene or let you change anything. It's also worth noting that the cat doesn't die at the end of the game.
The short answer to this question is no, “Stray” does not have multiple endings. The game's story follows a linear path that is predetermined and unalterable. The game's developers have confirmed that there is only one ending to the game.
The Zurks are recurring enemies evolved from bacteria, which appear throughout Chapter 2 to Chapter 8 and are said to be the only living beings of human times other than the cat or some animals. They can kill the cat, as well as Sentinels.
In terms of the main story, the cat lives, and makes it to the end pretty much unscathed. Put those worries aside, the cat survives!
And now some rapid-fire facts about Stray: There are no customization options for the cat. The cat doesn't have to eat, drink or sleep to stay alive, but it can do these things because they're cute. The cat doesn't have a name.
The player can interact with most robots in the world. Stray features two types of enemies who can kill the player: Zurks, a large, mutated bacteria that can swarm and devour the cat; and Sentinels, security drones who will attempt to shoot the player upon spotting them.
Parents need to know that Stray is mostly a downloadable action/adventure game for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Windows PCs. It has minimal violence (you play as a cat who's occasionally attacked by blobby creatures), and there's no blood or gore, though the blobs do leak fluid when they pop.
Death. At some point, there was an outbreak of plague in the city. Due to the inability to go outside, the inactivity of the Control Room workers, poor living conditions on the Lower Level and refusing to cooperate with each other, humans soon died out.
The cat doesn't have a name, but the closest the cat ever gets to having a name is “little one" by the Companions. Inspired by Murtaugh, the cat of BlueTwelve Studio's co-founders, he is quickly becoming a video game hit.
For the robots and any other beings still living in the city, however, the death of so many Zurks will allow them to live their lives with a lot less fear. It's a big improvement to the robots' post-apocalyptic quality of life, making the Stray ending a happy one for sure (unless you're a Zurk).
In Stray, one of the main collectibles hidden throughout the game is B-12 Memories. These aren't just good for earning the I Remember! Trophy, they also unveil some interesting story and lore, so they're definitely worth finding. You also get an in-game reward for finding them all.
The story does get a little dark mid-to-late game. There's some possibly scary environments that you make your way through. As well as some light “combat” and stealth gameplay. But nothing that would be out of place in a PG Disney movie, so I feel that it's appropriate for the kids.
The Sentinels are the main antagonists of the 2022 cyberpunk video game Stray. They are a corrupt and abusive police force who gives offenders harsh prison sentences and take away their free will by rebooting them. They also prevent anyone from leaving the "safe zones" to "protect the citizens".
Flesh Eyeballs are located in the Sewers. These are eyeballs that are attached to Fleshy Walls. They are not affected by UV light unlike the Zurks. It appears that they have manipulation over the Zurks, summoning them if you get too close to them.
At the end of Chapter 7: Dead End, Momo is found waiting for the cat and B-12 on a raft in the Sewers Entrance. Then he floats through the Sewers, but at one of the doors he discovers that it can only be opened manually, so it will not open much and will close quickly, which means he will not be able to go through it.
You'll be booted back to your last checkpoint (which should be just before you start the chase sequence) and you're able to be killed again. And again. And again. Nine times!
While not complete clones of each other, the protagonist in Stray had its design based on a real cat named Murtaugh. He is the cat of BlueTwelve Studio's producer, Viv and Koola. Originally he was a stray himself, found by Producer Martin-Raget under a car near Montpellier, France.
Some of them suggest there's a lot to know in the world, and things to find out apart from the player's primary goal of helping the cat find its way back to the surface. Although a lot of fans have asked whether a potential sequel is in development, BlueTwelve Studio has yet to officially announce a sequel to Stray.
