If teenage humor and jokes about religion is something you enjoy, then Afterparty can offer a fine evening's worth of entertainment. If you don't belong in the former group, then you can find better games to spend your time and your money.

An interesting game about growing up that needs to be played as much more than a light boozy adventure.

Still, if you enjoy some fairly well-written dialogue, complicated relationships between multi-dimensional characters and enjoyed the fluency of Oxenfree’s dialogue, you may well enjoy Afterparty. It won’t take long before Night School’s Oxenfree follow-up is merely an Afterthought, though.
If you absolutely love these types of games, or you're really, really eager for something new, then it's still worth checking out, especially since it's only $20 USD. If you're a little more hesitant, I'd wait, at least until some of these issues are possibly fixed in a patch. Afterparty is included in Xbox Game Pass, so if you intend to play on Xbox, you do have another option.
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.
Afterparty is a fantastic story about booze, buds, and the nature of good and evil. It's just not much else.
After success of Oxenfree, Night School Studio just released another high quality game. Afterparty is one of the best indie games released in 2019. Amazing story-telling, lovely visual and high quality voice acting made Afterparty a memorable experience

Afterparty shines with witty dialogues and a crazy story, but the adventure remains largely playful on the track

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.
Afterparty is one of the smartest games I've played this year. The characters are great, the dialogue is smart, and the drinking mechanics are inspired. If you can forgive its technical issues and a slow start, you too can enjoy the best drinks Hell has to offer.
Afterparty isn't the most groundbreaking work about hell or its denizens, but it zeroes in on its characters' personal demons with a sobering clarity that makes for an adventure with a sharp, biting wit.
Afterparty is a game with characters and writing, with the secondary characters often managing to outshine our two leads, Milo and Lola. Unfortunately a few technical issues with load times, stuttering and long periods of silence do suck some of the fun from Afterparty. Still, it's worth playing if you like your character centred pieces.
Hellish bugs might significantly diminish the experience but Afterparty still gives players a convincing enough argument to take an express elevator down to the fiery pits of torment.
Some of the best dialogue of the year and an interestingly original portrayal of Hell overcome a slightly undercooked take on classic graphic adventures.
It felt more like I was in Hell pushing through its technical issues than I did exploring the games' world.
Afterparty blends genuinely thought-provoking depictions of growing up, working, and the afterlife with great comedy and fantastically awkward conversations. While technically it has a few hiccups, the story and tone they strike are near flawless.
Afterparty as a whole is surprisingly funny. I did actual out loud laughs sometimes, not just strong exhalations through my nose.
For anyone looking for a good story driven game that has some pretty hard hitting decisions as well as some really goofy moments, Afterparty is a fun one to take on, and with the multiple options and branching paths, there is some room for replay in there as well.
Afterparty is a stylish and compelling narrative adventure featuring superbe writing, top-notch voice acting and a great take on the classic hellscape, with a couple of twist and a lot of booze-action. Sometimes it's guilty of selfindulgency, but, that's probably why it's set in Hell.

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