Mae and the Wolf by wolfjedisamuel Mae and the Wolf by wolfjedisamuel
Life makes us all into trash mammals in our own little way...



I've been enjoying Night in the Woods recently. I discovered it from PatrckStatic, then Jacksepticeye (which I'm still following. I love his dubbing for this series), and finished it off from a YouTuber called Checkpoint. It's a really interesting game and emotional one for that. I love the 2D-Vector style and simplistic aesthetics portrayed, yet fine detailing on design and animation. The music is beautifully orchestrated and the dialogue is just to die for. Best part has to be the dialogue.

If you don't know what N.I.T.W is, it's a story based coming-of-age mystery game played through an anthropomorphic cat named Mae who returns to her home town after suffering another mental breakdown from college. 

As stylized and animated as this game maybe, it is so true to life and super close to realism in terms of capturing our personal emotions. The story and the issues faced by the main characters are something we all encounter in our daily lives, or even know someone experiencing those types of social and personal issues.

I could really relate to the story, and I feel we all have a little bit of each character in us, including the struggles & joy they face. You could really sympathized for these 2D characters, but personally for me, more so for Mae and Bea. Their issues hit closer to home. 
So what better way for to show my feelings and support for this game than to spoof it.

Sorry about the lengthy and faint dialogue, fellas. Got lazy to replicate the typography of the original game. Download for full view, I suppose.

For some reasons, I find myself kinda wanting to see a ''follow-up picture'', where Mae got the hat and is wearing it ?.. maybe while unconscious-drunk.

I'm a military collector and history buff. I collect all sorts of military antiques, particularly those of the German army in my early days of collecting.

Ah, a historian of sorts I assume? Memories of the old wars and the past, reminds me of a fellow from The Divide. Always had that duster with a flag of an old world. Well either way, this art piece is pretty good.

I follow Jack's playthrough as well and I am really enjoying the game so far.
The art style indeed is awesome and the characters do a good job keeping me hooked to the story.
