Game Info

GAME INFO

Night In The Woods is an adventure game heavily focused on story, characters and exploration, with some platforming to get around town. Mae’s a cat so the roofs and ledges and powerlines are all her playground, and she’s not the only one up there by a long shot. You’ll also be doing various activities and interacting with the world in different ways, getting to know the townspeople, hanging out with friends, exploring Possum Springs inside and out, and venturing into the surrounding areas.

Chloi Rad (IGN)

8.7/10

“Night in the Woods captures the fears and anxieties of being a young adult with surprising clarity, but brings it into new and interesting territory thanks to its developers’ deep understanding of rural America’s economic hardships. Branching, well-written dialogue made me feel closer to Mae’s story as I helped build out her history and reignite friendships, encouraging a second playthrough to uncover the scenes (and even a few secrets) I know I missed.”

“A beautiful, heartfelt coming of age story that says something about life, and cracks a few jokes in the process.”

“A witty smalltown adventure with light puzzle-platforming elements that walks the line between nostalgia and nihilism.”
