If you were sent to Hell for "reasons" and the only way out was to be the Devil at a drinking contest, could you do it? That is what Afterparty is going to try to answer when it comes to us in 2019. At least that is how it all seems based on the teaser announcement that Night School Studio has put out for their next title. Yes, this is a real thing and we can all experience the fun in Afterparty as we head down this rabbit hole and see just how we can get out. All the while learning more about the two main characters and how they will also be affecting the underworld and its denizens. Mostly through an "intelligent conversation" system and completing quests along the way.
During Afterparty, we will also be faced with many other games and activities that go along with drinking all of the different libations from watering hole to watering hole. Obviously, beer pong, chugging, dance-offs, and karaoke will be in the mix. How these all play out can alter the underworld in minor ways like NPCs having different thoughts about you all the way to entire islands of Hell being destroyed. I am not sure how that more drastic of an event can occur in Afterparty, but it is something that could happen. All so we can meet the big boss and try to drink him under the table and get Milo and Lola back to the realm of Earth and presumably save their souls.
Afterparty is coming from the same team that brought us Oxenfree, so that should help you get in the mindset of what to expect. There has yet to be any specific platforms mentioned that the game will release on, but the common three of PS4, Xbox One, and PC are an easy guess for now. I am sure we will find out soon-ish as this is just an announcement for now and we have just a year until the proposed launch. So, maybe not too soon but soon. That is how I am going to say it for now.
Afterparty — Teaser
In Afterparty, you play Milo and Lola, recently deceased best buds who suddenly find themselves staring down an eternity in Hell. But there’s a loophole: outdrink Satan and he’ll grant you re-entry to Earth.
Milo and Lola are now dead, thirsty, and roaming the streets of Nowhere, the outermost island of Hell.
It’s time to:
What adventures will you stumble through in the underworld? Every step is up to you. Time to go on the best bender ever, uncover the mystery of why you’ve been damned, and drink the big guy under the table.
What do you think of Afterparty based on what we have out of the basic announcement? Does the idea of having a drinking competition to get out of Hell seem like a fun idea or just a plain one with a little twist? What other activities do you think we will have to perform in the game or will it all be a basic version of a different drinking game along the way? Let us all know down in the comments and then discuss. For more on Afterparty, be sure to stay right here. We will keep all of the information coming and you will not want to miss a thing.
