The story of Mae Borowski is an effortless blend of growing up while confronting the strange going’s on in the woods. And while it’s an excellent story, it’s the characters and their struggles, triumphs, joy and sadness that I’ll always remember about Night in the Woods.
Detention is a great horror game, single-handedly redeeming the lack of quality in the genre’s most recent years. It trades in cheap scare tactics to instead create an unsettling and incredibly effective atmosphere of terror. You’ll dread going through each and every door in Detention, but be compelled to do so anyway thanks to a compelling main story and excellent world building.
