FINJI is very excited to announce that the award-winning game NIGHT IN THE WOODS is now available on iOS, thanks to the team at Secret Lab.
On the off chance that you’re not already familiar with the game, NIGHT IN THE WOODS is an adventure game where you play as a 19-year-old cat who comes home to her small rural town after dropping out of college. The game focuses on exploration, story, and characters, featuring over 100+ characters to meet and hang out with across the vibrant world of Possum Springs.
First published on Playstation 4 and PC Storefronts in 2017, NIGHT IN THE WOODS has since come to Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and now iOS. The game won multiple awards, including the Seamus McNally Grand Prize at the Independent Games Festival and the BAFTA and IGF for Narrative, both in 2018.
We’re also able to offer interviews with Scott Benson, co-creator of NIGHT IN THE WOODS, as well as with John Manning founder of Secret Lab, and the developer of Yarnspinner, the narrative tool used to create NIGHT IN THE WOODS. Manning also did all of the development work to bring this pc/console game to iOS.
