Finji’s Night In the Woods is one of the best-written indie games of all time.
Seriously, if you want a game to take you on an amazing, emotional rollercoaster this game is for you. Night In The Woods released on the PC, Xbox One and PS4 last year and will soon be available for the Nintendo Switch.
The developer has confirmed that the game will be coming to Nintendo Switch on February 1st, selling for $19.99 USD. This is a perfect Switch title as you can easily pick up and play.
Without diving into spoilers here’s what the game is all about:
College dropout Mae Borowski returns home to the crumbling former mining town of Possum Springs seeking to resume her aimless former life and reconnect with the friends she left behind. But things aren’t the same. Home seems different now and her friends have grown and changed. Leaves are falling and the wind is growing colder. Strange things are happening as the light fades.
And there’s something in the woods.
Join Mae on a trip through her hometown and into the dark on the other side.
Night in the Woods is an adventure game focused on exploration, story, and character, featuring dozens of characters to meet and lots to do across a lush, vibrant world. Break stuff, play bass, hang out, walk on powerlines, jump between roofs, and discover strange and amazing and terrible things you never asked for. Come home and waste your life away in Possum Springs.
