Amazing! Not horror, just a bit eerie.

Wow, this game is so amazing. It's really one of the best games I've ever played. I'm rating it 12+ because of some mature themes, but nothing in the game is that bad. Mostly things that kids 12+ would already know about like drinking. SPOLIER AHEAD: There is also a cult in the game. If you don't want you or your kids being exposed to these things, I wouldn't recommend it.

Great Game

I got this game about less than a month ago, and I'm in love with it. The main character, Mae is going through some things teenagers and Young Adults can relate to. There are some good messages and role models, though the game has just a few lines about sex and some swearwords. Overall, I love the game, and I think it's okay for ages 10 or 11 and up.

Why NITW is really good.

The only reason why i gave it a 14+ rating is simply because some are not mature enough to play this game. But, if your 12 or 13 yo child wants to play the game, make sure they are mature enough. The "sex " is just a story and only talks about for like 1 minute. No drugs except drinking and smoking. Characters, like Bea smoke but that also is important to the story. She is seen in scenes where she doesn't have a cigarette in her mouth. Plus she is trying to quit! Drinking is conterversial since Mae, the protaginist, does get drunk. This really the only time we see drinks. In a side-story, you go to a college party with red solo cups, but i'ts not confirmed if they have achohol. Mae DOES get drunk, but she dosen't drive, shows what over drinking does bad things, and gives a nice messages to have a designated driver. Bea also gives information that most people don't know when drinking, SIZE MATTERS A LOT!!! Mae regrets it, and never does it again. The LGBTQ+ thing ins't bad. If you thinks it's bad, play the game for yourself. It's Sexuality. LGBTQ+ is something happening right now. Kids learn about different cultures and people. The game devs wanted to capture the diversity in small towns. There is violence but mainly against lightbulbs, as you can play a minigame where you smash them. There is a cult but they are bad, so your fighting for the good guys. All these things make the story. And language? Mainly s**t and "effing" instead of the actual word. It never says to do any bad things, it acknowledges them and turns them in building blocks for the charcacters, like real life! The worst thing is the cult but it is little mentioned, until the end! Pornograhphy in the game is just ads for "hot chats" but you can't open them. With those topics, they are never explicit. It does something good with the bad. Isn't that useful? High School is about the time they are learning about things like this, like sex-ed, and they know about LGBTQ+ and pornography in middle school. Don't be afraid to talk if they want to learn more. If they don't get it from you, they'll get elsewhere( reliable or not). Teach them how to respond to content like this because you cant make a real story, real characters, without talking about REAL topics. That's not real life. Good for teens, young adults, and tweens that can handle such stuff. :)

this is one of the only 2 games I've cried at

ok there are some scary parts but nothing like jump scares and while not bad the ending is a heck of a lot less scary than anticipated and if people are concerned about like sex and kissing you need to wake up your kid already knows as for swearing same thing but this game is a masterpeice and i totally recommend 100/100

Night in the woods is a great game

Oh. My. God. This game is the definition of awesome!!! It has such a unique art style and playing style! There is some *content* that maybe some kids might find uncomfortable but if your kid isn’t this game is perfectly fine for them! And to be honest the *content* is probably something your kid has already seen and heard of. If your kid is like.. Sensitive about like.. Subjects like depression, debt, or other stuff.. I wouldn’t reccomend this game to them. Also I saw a rating about a parent being skeptic about LGBTQ+ stuff being mentioned in the game and what do I have to say about that? Well... I don’t understand why someone would be concerned about LGBTQ+ content it’s just love. ANYWHO, nitw (night in the woods) is a great game and I highly recommend it for teens or mature tweens!

Fun game for mature kids

This game is defiantly fine for anyone over 13, many kids under 13 are mature enough for it as well. It really values friendship and has a nice message. The thing I don't understand in the one parent review is that it says they were iffy cause of the lgtb topics. In my opinion, if a kids knows about marriage between a man and a women then learning about lgbt is no different. There's language but nothing your kid hasn't heard at school. The drinking stuff is just silly. Super fun game, only wish it was longer.

Great game for teens!

This is a very fun and engrossing game. Controls are easy enough for anyone to catch onto fast. Discusses things that are often hard to talk about (child abuse, poor towns, family issues, lgbtq, drinking/drugs, illness, and death) but there's a great message in each of these. Minimal swearing (no f-bombs), some drinking and minimal discussion of porn and sex. A great game for teens, talks about friendships, relationships and growing up.

Fantastic!

This game is fantastic. It's one of my favorite games! The game has references to inappropriate things like porn invading a computer,Mae (the main character) getting drunk, Bea (another character) smokes a cigarette almost every time you see her,a cult is shown and mild swearing. If you are over 13 or 14 I recommend it! It's a fantastic game and easy to play.
