Adventure/exploration game Night in the Woods
achieved its $50,000 goal on Kickstarter
after one day on the funding platform. The indie story-focused game comes from Infinite Fall, a two-person team composed of Aquaria
developer Alec Holowka and animator Scott Benson.
Night in the Woods
has players exploring the town Possum Springs as college dropout Mae, a cat with recently-developed "paranormal abilities." Mae joins a ragtag group of "loser friends," including a bear named Angus, described as "that kid in school who wore ties and fedoras for no good reason." Mae's growing abilities grant her access to new parts of the town as the adventure wears on, including an area near Possum Springs' old mine where "something in the woods" resides. Night in the Woods
is planned for PC and Mac, and is currently estimated to launch in January 2015. The Kickstarter project will close on November 22.
