“Both prophecy and requiem. [A Night in the Woods is] a pensive game, absent of conflict and rich in subtext.”
– Paul Hack, Indie Statik

“You’ll find three of my favourite things: gorgeous first-person pixel art, thoughtful sound design, and overbearing screen borders [that trick] my brain into thinking I’m playing some forgotten first-person RPG from the mid-nineties.” – Tom Sykes, PC Gamer
