Death and pizza parties
Night in the Woods is real cool. I’ve played it and loved what I’ve played, from the writing to the art style to the pierogi. I just want to curl up with it on the couch and now that’s going to be easier than even because it’s coming to PS4.
I’ll let creator Scott Benson tell it. “Night In The Woods takes place in the crumbling town of Possum Springs, a dead-end backwater that is barely holding on after the mining jobs left. Mae the cat is a college dropout who has returned home to reclaim her teenage life with her friends who stayed in town. Bea stayed home from college to take over the family business after a death sent her family into a tailspin. Gregg and Angus are highschool sweethearts, working hard to get out of Possum Springs. Germ is a weird kid that hangs around. No one knows what his deal is.”
The tl;dr? “Night In The Woods is a game about the inevitability of death… and pizza parties.” Plus vandalism! I love vandalism.
