Afterparty falls short of the standard that Night School set with Oxenfree. While it boasts a strong setting and brilliant set-up, it leans heavily on writing that just isn’t strong enough to shoulder the load. I still can’t wait to see what Night School does next, but Afterparty feels like a watered-down take on Oxenfree. Here’s hoping they can mix up something a little stronger for the next round.

With its charming 2D style, exceptional voice acting and hilarious moments, Afterparty ultimately ticks all the right boxes. Bottoms up!

Afterparty is filled with irritating characters and over-written dialog sections.

Certainly a worthwhile successor to Night School’s debut, if hardly the leap to a higher echelon some may be hoping for.

It felt more like I was in Hell pushing through its technical issues than I did exploring the games' world.

Afterparty is like a Godfather cocktail: devilishly sweet and won’t leave you with a remorseful hangover. Night School Studio can toast to creating a funny and endearing tale.

A daring and fresh adventure in Hell that excels in the most important areas but just barely misses the mark in others

Afterparty retains Night School’s penchant for good storytelling, but clumsier game design and technical issues leave my enthusiasm—ironically enough—in limbo.

While Afterparty provides some charm and fun it was ultimately a let down for me.

Afterparty presents a version of Hell that is likely to hit home for a lot of people, and ensures nothing is wasted when it comes to its writing. The nuanced characters and world will be more than enough for fans of the adventure game genre to enjoy playing through multiple times.
