Night in the Woods launching in late February

Night in the Woods, the Kickstarter-funded adventure game from Infinite Fall, will be released Feb. 21, the studio announced today.

The three-person development team added that their “grueling final testing/polish period gets rolling next week.”

A date of Feb. 21 doesn’t quite meet the window of “somewhere in the first part of February” — the time frame that Infinite Fall gave last month, when it announced it had to push back Night in the Woods from its previous release date of Jan. 10.

Infinite Fall confirmed to that the Feb. 21 date will apply on all platforms on which Night in the Woods will be released — Linux, Mac, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. For more on Night in the Woods, you can check out last month’s trailer below.

Nine of the 20 players were All-Star selections, so this isn't simply a popularity contest. M...
