To Hell and Back
(Update: Afterparty received a new trailer during PlayStation’s State of Play presentation yesterday. You can check out the newest video below.)
Night School Studio’s bender from hell Afterparty will crack open the beers exactly one month from the now. The upcoming indie adventure will launch October 23 on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Epic Games Store.
Afterparty is the tale of two friends, Milo and Lola, whose good time goes a little awry after they find themselves dead and staring into the mouth of Hell. Sounds like a rough weekend. Once there, however, the duo decides that the night is still young, and embark on an all-new jaunt through the town of Nowhere, where they continue to meet new people, play games, engage in slurred conversation and, of course, drink.
In Afterparty, players will journey through a stylised, comic-book iteration of oblivion, whilst dialogue and cutscenes drip-feed the back story of our heroes’ fate. Choices of drink, dialogue and activities will alter Milo and Lola’s abilities, also affecting their relationships with the various denizens of the underworld. Can you drink the big guy under the table and return to the land of the living? Or are you damned to eternity in a dive bar? Either way, it’ll make for one helluva Halloween.
Afterparty launches on October 23 for PS4, PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
