The First Hour: Night in the Woods
Mae is a cat who has just dropped out of college and returned to her hometown of Possum Springs expecting to resume her old life. But Mae may have reasons for dropping out of college she’s not telling anyone, and she discovers her friends and neighbors have changed since she left… or were never the way she thought they were in the first place. A slice-of-life narrative adventure game that belies its anthropomorphized characters with heavy themes including depression, grief, and alcoholism, Night in the Woods was an indie sensation in 2017 and came to the Nintendo Switch on February 1st, as all indie sensations inevitably must.
