Night in the Woods is an upcoming game from Alec Holowka (Aquaria, Towerfall) and animator Scott Benson. From the Kickstarter page:

Night In The Woods is a 2D story-focused adventure/exploration game with many extracurricular activities to enjoy, characters to meet, and secrets to discover. Run, jump and use astral projection to explore the many sides of town of Possum Springs and the surrounding environs. Waste time around town with your crew of loser friends. Gain abilities that grant passage to new areas. Discover the secrets of a large cast of characters and the town itself. Experience a big crazy world and the remarkable events unfolding there. Play bass. Break stuff.

Lovely audiovisuals and I’m intrigued by the story and characters. Really looking forward to this one!

    Weren’t they developing Marian? I once asked him on twitter what happened but never got a reply.

    Sometimes projects just don’t work out, or the time isn’t right. It’s never easy to move on. :/

    That’s unfortunate. I was really looking forward to this game. NitW does not interests me, however, GRAVE is looking quite promising, thanks for the link.

    nevermind, didn’t click the video. still “exploration game” leaves a bad taste in my mouth

    Great visuals and I like the post-industrial decay setting a lot. That’s a very real part of America nowadays, interesting topic.
