Can’t Cat-ch Me
Once I cracked into Stray for the primary time, I didn’t assume I’d have to fret about how greatest to zig-zag, juke, and even “drift” as a cat — however when a coveted trophy is on the road, every part’s on the desk. Half an hour of failed makes an attempt and a number of other slow-mo information movies later, I’ve lastly gotten Can’t Cat-ch Me, a easy but deceptively laborious trophy.
It’s one of many earliest trophies/achievements you may (theoretically) get in Stray, however I’m right here to say that it could be greatest to reserve it till after you’ve completed the sport. It might put you right into a bitter temper if you happen to attempt to pressure it, so don’t let it gnaw away. Come again later.
Within the second chapter, there’s a tense chase sequence on the town streets with Headcrab-esque creatures known as the Zurks. They’ll scurry, leap, and glom onto your cat, and if you happen to don’t shake them off rapidly sufficient, that’ll be the tip of this journey. Strive once more.
In a puzzle-solving journey sport that’s overwhelmingly chill, these little creeps are very threatening. They’re relentless, as they’re meant to be, and that works effectively within the context of the ruined metropolis’s story. However on the subject of this trophy, the battle is actual.
- Can’t Cat-ch Me: Full the primary Zurk pursuit with out being caught.
The chase sequence is a few minute lengthy — how laborious might it’s? I feared the two-hour speedrun greater than the rest, however that appears approach much less irritating by comparability; there’s room for error, at the very least. Right here, you must memorize each rushdown and pray.
That’s your private home!
Typically, zig-zagging is the play. However typically, it’s greatest to strategically run into a gaggle of Zurks and swerve on the final second. Different occasions, you may must take a large swing from one wall all the way in which to the opposite, to attract out sure Zurk leaps. It’s not a lot avoiding coming into contact with them as it’s ensuring they don’t land on prime of you.
After all, in follow, it seems like devious RNG is pulling the strings.
