In many ways we are inclined to describe Night in the woods as Life is Strange meets Bojack Horseman. The interactive dialogue elements are reminiscent of the former, while the general themes of managing mental health issues ring true in the latter.
Night in The Woods itself was developed into Unity by Infinite Fall, the virtual studio comprised of coder and songwriter Alec Holowka and illustrator and slash jokester Twitter host Scott Benson. Together, these two have crafted not just a game, but an amazing world filled with relatable characters that should hopefully resonate with you.
You play as Mae, a school dropout cat who recently returned to her hometown of Possum Springs. It’s a fully storytelling-driven game, as modern point-and-click adventure games typically are, with very few gameplay hooks that will hold your attention. So if you like Telltale Games or Life is Strange, Night in the Woods might be the best laptop game for you.
Best of all, it will perform well enough on integrated graphics, given that it has an attractive, but not very demanding, art style. It’s surely a title we’ll be talking about for years and years to come, even though it was snubbed at the Game Awards.
