2Night in the Woods

Night in the Woods is a narrative-driven game from developer Infinite Fall. You play as Mae, a young woman who’s just returned home after dropping out of college. She soon realises how much things have changed in her home town since she first left.

Covering topics of depression, the complicated politics between upper and middle classes, the fall of small-town America and more, Night in the Woods is much deeper than its cute animal characters would suggest. It’s no wonder that it’s won multiple awards, including “Best Narrative” and “Most Fulfilling Community-Funded Game”. It’s an absolute must-have, and one of the best indie games on Switch.
