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.

Don't have a concrete opinion on this yet nor have finished it, but this is the hardest anything has given me mid-2010s tumblrite college dropout vibes.

se meu cérebro um dia estiver mais corrompido por problemas de adolescente alternativo bicudo talvez eu volte a jogar (não vou)

não gosto da protagonista, não sinto conexão o suficiente pra continuar a história mas a arte é legal, a gameplay já não me lembro bem como era enfim meu problema é mais com os personagens e a história que eu tinha altas expectativas

Fantastic, good story great replayability. I highly recommend this!!

I wish there were more games that gave me the same cosy feeling as this one does

I've been sitting here trying to think of how to even start this review. I'll avoid big spoilers, but this may spoil the game in more general ways, so keep that in mind before reading.


This game is just so amazing and beautiful (emotionally). Feels so raw and realistic (excluding the physics and the anthropomorphic animal people). Characters are so loveable, but in a way that feels true to life, not just a "loveable fictional character" way. Idk, everything about the characters and their relationships feel accurate. Love it tackling the pains of growing up and how it affects relationships, along with many other topics.

I find Mae relatable in many ways (not necessarily her overall personality, but some specific things she deals with), and have grown more attached to Angus over time, despite his limited focus in the story. He might be my favorite character by now. Gregg and Bea are also great and get a lot of focus to expand on them.

I'll try to talk about this as vaguely as possible: I will say that the whole...thing...that happens near the end/second half is strange, not sure why they went that direction. That's not even a complaint or anything, just saying that even after finishing the story, I'm not quite sure what the reason for it was. It led to one of the greatest scenes in anything I've ever seen, though, and sparked interesting moments with the characters, so I'm fine with it. Just mentioning that it's a lil random, and you probably never would've expected anything like it from the beginning. There are some signs of something like that happening, but it still felt a lil out of place with the overall vibe the game had going on.

Anyways, if you haven't, please play this game or watch a playthrough of it.
