Alright 80%

I have a hard time placing this as a 7 or 8 out of 10. It's right in that sweet spot between the two for me. This game is definitely within the same realm as some walking-simulators, but it grabbed my attention a little better than most. It has some more elements of game play to it than just walking around, but for the most part, you're just enjoying the story, and the melancholy atmosphere. This game hits a little close to home. It captures th... Read More

Positive points
Good music, story, and art style. The deviations from the main gameplay actually help break up the samey elements of the game. Addresses its subject matter in a very weird but charming way.... Read More
Negative points
Some of the game elements feel shallow, and could be a little deeper. Replayability, it doesn't seem like a game I'd like to play to get the other ending. I'd probably just look it up on YouTube.... Read More

Good 90%

I'm sorry for having missed out on putting this on my Best of 2017 List. It was a charming game and even enlightening in some way. Between this and Hellblade, it really provides some perspective on mental health, something that's been really been beyond me and something I want to sympathize with and learn more about. Beyond the serious subject matter, it addresses the realities in a genuine and charming way that anyone from a small town can en... Read More

Positive points
Art design and animation, soundtrack, writing
Negative points
Gaming aspects can be a little too simplistic at times

Storyline

Night In The Woods is a VIDEO GAME. All Mae wants to do is run around with her friends, break stuff and hang on to a life of aggressive aimlessness. She dropped out of college and returned home to her crumbling old mining town to do just that, but she's finding that nothing is the same anymore. The old town seems different. Her old friends have grown in their own directions. Mae herself is undergoing some sudden and unexplained changes, giving her mysterious abilities that grant her access to a side of town she never knew existed.
The world is changing, things are ending, and the future is uncertain. Up behind the park at the edge of town, back in the trees by the old mine- there's something in the woods. And it could mean no future at all.
Night In The Woods comes from a deep place for us. That point where you sense things are changing and it's time to move on but you just don't know how. Knowing that everything will end someday, and wondering how well we'll be able to meet it when it happens. How long we'll be able to hold on, and when we should let go. When to accept and when to fight.
