Night in the Woods Now Releases on February 21 for PS4 & PC

[embedded content] Previously scheduled for January 10, adventure game Night in the Woods is now releasing on February 21 for PlayStation 4 and PC, developer Infinite Fall announced today. On Twitter, Infinite Fall talked about some of the challenges of making a game with a small team: Realtalk: we’re not a big company. The core team is 3 people working out of our small apartments. I’m one of them. Hello. We’ve only been in the same room irl like 4 or 5 times for a few days over the past 3 years. No offices, no payroll. US and Canada. People have a tendency to see all games as coming from companies with big PR teams and producers and fancy workplaces and so forth. Even our amazing publisher @FinjiCo is a literal mom and pop operation run (very ably) out of their house in Michigan. Additional animation is done by my friend @charleshuettner. Shirts are printed by my friend @cwpress. Alec’s friend @bitmOO has been our tireless lead tester. So bringing a game like this in with this small and scattered a team? Kind of a miracle. Thanks for being into it. Thanks for supporting. By pre-ordering Night in the Woods through the PlayStation Store in…

[embedded content] Announced back in 2014, Night in the Woods is releasing on January 10, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PC, developer Infinite Fall revealed today. An adventure game focused on characters, dialogue, story, and exploring a big world, Night in the Woods follows Mae Borowski, a 20 year old college dropout who returns to Possum Springs, a small town in the middle of nowhere. Expecting to meet up with old friends and resume her old life of hanging out and petty crimes, Mae finds that her friends have grown up and changed. Not only that, but strange things are starting to happen, and there’s something in the woods. “How you choose to spend your time in Possum Springs will determine what things you end up doing and who you’ll get to know,” Art Director Scott Benson adds. “You’ll need more than one playthrough to see all of it.” Infinite Fall explained on Kickstarter why Night in the Woods has taken longer than previously thought: So yeah. We were originally shooting for this fall but to make a much longer story (hello those who read last night’s backer update!) short: in late September we had to add a handful of weeks to the schedule because of…
