If we talk about indie games, then one game that definitely crosses our mind is Stray. Well, it is justified because it was teased back in 2020. Since then, gamers around the globe have been on the lookout for its release.
After two years of wait, Stray was finally released on the 19th of July, 2022. This game is developed by BlueTwelve Studio and published by Annapurna Interactive. It can be played on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Microsoft Windows.
Stray has taken the gaming world by storm which is evident by the fact that it became one of the top sellers on steam in the week before its release. This is understandable because of how wholesome the story of the game is and the experience that it offers to its players.
The story revolves around a cute little ginger cat that was separated from its family and is trying to find its way back to them. The developers have done a phenomenal job at capturing the true identity of a cat. There are a few shortcomings but they can be easily overlooked as everything else compensates for them.
The developers have ensured that the cat’s movement, mannerisms, and all other shenanigans that these lovely little animals do in real life are on point. They were able to do so with the help of five cats in their studio.
On top of that, you will be exploring the cyberpunk city and interacting with the humanoid robots that the city is filled with. The protagonist is just like any other cat and hence can not talk. Therefore, you are accompanied by a drone, B12, that does all the talking for you.
What Are The Memories
There are several collectibles in stray like the music sheets, and memories. In this Stray memories slums guide, we will cover everything you need to know about memories and the locations of the ones that are located in slums.
These memories essentially provide a better understanding of the stray’s world. The B12’s memory bank can be accessed by going into your inventory. Here you will find the details such as the memories you have collected and the ones that you have not.
In addition to that, these memories can be easily differentiated based on different colors: blue, yellow, and grey. The blue ones represent the memories that you have recovered. Yellow represents the memories that you have received. The grey ones represent the memories that can be found in your current level and those with no color represent the ones that you can not find in your present location.
