The game features zoomorphic humans who are residents of a town called Possum Springs. The game's protagonist Mae is a college dropout who has returned to the town and she eventually unearths the dark secrets that were buried in the towns belly.
The game was announced in October 2013 and at that time, the developers raised their goal of $50,000 funding in just 26 hours and eventually went to raise $200,000 through crowdfunding. This allowed them to hire more workforce for Night in the Woods and eventually, a roguelike action game was born.
After its release, the game received positive reviews and was highly applauded for its story, soundtrack and characters, and today it boasts a 9/10 rating on Steam. Night in the Woods was nominated for several awards in 2017 and 2018. The game won two awards for having superb narrative- Best Narrative at the 14th British Academy Games Awards and Excellence in Narrative Award at Independent Games Festival Competition Awards
