Night in the Woods har nå offisielt blitt annonsert til Playstation 4 på Playstation-bloggen. Sammen med annonseringen kan vi se en rekke lekre detaljer fra spillet animatør, Scott Benson. Spillet beskrives som et "adventure/exploration game with a heavy focus on story, character, and place", og etter bildene og traileren å dømme har spillet en mildt sagt særegen stil.
Benson beskriver selv spillet slik:
"You'll be doing some running and jumping around, a lot of extracurricular activities, some bass playing, some smashing of things, and a lot of hanging out with your townie friends."
Her er de to første bildene og traileren fra Night in the Woods, og under dem finner du historiekonseptet klippet rett ut fra pressemeldingen.
Night In The Woods takes place in the crumbling town of Possum Springs, a dead-end backwater that is barely holding on after the mining jobs left. Mae the cat is a college dropout who has returned home to reclaim her teenage life with her friends who stayed in town. Bea stayed home from college to take over the family business after a death sent her family into a tailspin. Gregg and Angus are highschool sweethearts, working hard to get out of Possum Springs. Germ is a weird kid that hangs around. No one knows what his deal is.
What Mae finds, however, is that life and her friends moved on while she was away. Strange things are happening to her and to the town. Things are changing. And there's something in the woods up behind the park that might mean an end to all of it.
