Afterparty is a hilarious bar hop through Hell. I had a blast meeting all the demons and people roaming the streets and crashing Satan's house party. I highly recommend this game for anyone who is looking for a humorous take on life and death. Night Club Studio knocks another one out the park.

Afterparty is a fantastic and incredibly funny tale of friendship and the role drinking alcohol plays in society and the effects that drinking has on us. Night School Studio has created one of the funniest games ever made and their version of Hell is fully realised. The stellar voice acting and writing left me smiling from ear to ear constantly. Afterparty is a joy to play and everyone should take a trip to Hell.

Even with a few technical flaws though Night School Studio’s Afterparty feels like a masterpiece of narrative gaming. And if you're wondering how it compares to Oxenfree, I'd suggest just letting Afterparty stand on its own as its own story and piece of work.

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 is certainly an acquired taste, but—like a fine wine or a good beer—it’s definitely worth the effort.

Afterparty should be commended for its diabolical sense of humour and elegantly crafted conversations. While it’s definitely the wrong time of year for additional playthroughs, I’m most certainly coming back when I find myself with some precious free time, slamming down some different drinks and picking new decisions just to see how things will play out in my newly-created alternate timeline.

With fantastic dialogue, an unforgettable performance by Dave Fennoy, and a surprisingly charming version of Hell, I think players from all walks of life and all belief systems can find something to love in Afterparty.

Night School's Oxenfree is a charming, hilarious, and insightful comedy that makes Hell a pretty fun place to be.

A funny, likeable adventure with lashings of alcohol. There's also enough content in Afterparty to push you through a second time around.

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 an irresistible journey to hell, round and (maybe) return. A place of perdition that lives at the rhythm of club culture, telling the crazy night of two dead boys who mysteriously want to recover their earthly life, challenging Satan and his alcoholism.

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 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.

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.

It's well worth giving in to temptation partying with the devil by throwing back a few drinks in Afterparty. The game isn't very long or difficult, but it makes up for it with plenty of wit and charm.

Afterparty is one of the funniest and most plot-driven games of this year, which constantly throws out too much information on the player, so even with a good level of English you will have to work hard.
