Top Critic Average
The top-notch writing and superb voice acting, coupled with the visually vibrant hellscape, keeps your interest from start to finish.
Night School's Oxenfree is a charming, hilarious, and insightful comedy that makes Hell a pretty fun place to be.
Night School Studios follows on its excellent work in Oxenfree with this touching look at the absurdity of life and video games.
Afterparty is one of the funniest games I've ever played, and its plot bends to player choices in subtle, important ways. But Night School Studio needs to clean up the bugs before I can fully recommend players go to Hell.
Some of the best dialogue of the year and an interestingly original portrayal of Hell overcome a slightly undercooked take on classic graphic adventures.
The premise may seem silly and lighthearted, but Afterparty goes well beyond drinking games into something more meaningful
Afterparty is an ambitious game that works hard to deliver funny dialog and outright laughs.
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.
Night School Studios have made hell intriguing and complex, with punchy dialog and relatable characters, be it human or demonic. The humor and writing is where Afterparty shines the most, breathing life into every character it touches—be it short and sarcastic, or emotional and reverent. Like the Beastie Boys' "Fight for Your Right (To Party)," what seems like dumb entertainment can evolve into something a lot more meaningful if you're willing to look beneath the surface.
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.
