Night in the Woods is a 2D adventure/exploration game starring a cat named Mae who returns to her hometown after a dropping out of college to discover that things aren't quite as she remembers them. It's all about running, jumping, astral projection, wasting time with loser friends, discovering secrets, playing bass, and breaking stuff—potentially very cool, in other words.

Fortunately, the wheels of development have continued to turn, and developer Infinite Fall announced today that the game will be out later this year.

Thanks, PCGamesN.
