In the last decade, independent games have become more and more visible within the mainstream gaming market. Partly to do with the rise in gaming as a staple entertainment platform, smaller indie titles have commanded more attention than ever before. Indie titles are like short films, with AAA titles being Hollywood movies.

While many indie games have their moment in the limelight before being drowned out by another 100 titles, few leave a mark as powerful as Night In The Woods. Released on February 21st 2017, Night In The Woods still holds up as one of the most beloved indie titles alongside the likes of Oxenfree and Firewatch.
With a deep story and heavy investment into the characters, we at incubadoradeartistas.com have put together a list of the top 10 Night In The Woods characters.
10. Mae Borowski
The obvious first choice, Mae, is the character you play as during the game. She’s a sarcastic wise-ass who doesn’t seem to care much for rules, which sounds like every 20-something college dropout. Oh, and she’s a cat.
Having returned to her parents’ home, she actively avoids talking about serious issues and her future, instead retorting to everyone she runs into and acting like she’s still a care-free teenager.
As the game progresses, you’ll learn more as to why Mae is like this and the many layers of emotions she holds back underneath her sharp wit. Whilst she may come off as a childish person with no vision or future, you’ll learn to love her and see yourself in her many adolescent struggles

Bea, or Beatrice is a blue crocodile who is never without her cigarette. With a smoky eye and dark clothing, she immediately gives off a vibe of reluctance, gloominess and a cool attitude. Bae was Mae’s childhood best friend until they grew apart, eventually not having much to do with each other at all.
On Mae’s return to Possum Springs, she tries desperately to becomes best friends with Bae, as if their childhood was yesterday and she’d never gone off to college. Bea is far from eager to rekindle the friendship between the two, and this provides for some very interesting dialogue between the two early on in the game.

An overt, loud, and reckless fox, you’re bound to have had at least one friend like Gregg in your life. Gregg is always overflowing with energy, happiness and talk, providing for some fun, rebellious dialogue and actions with Mae.
Gregg is Mae’s best friend and is always ecstatic to see her. With his troublemaker boy-charm and her rebellious attitude, the two usually end up getting up to some sort of mischief and tomfoolery.
Gregg is also the boyfriend of Angus, another character who is the complete opposite to Gregg’s loud, fiery personality. Gregg feels as though Angus has saved him, worrying that he may ruin their relationship one day with his exuberant personality.

Angus is a bear and Gregg’s other half, and as already stated, he is the polar opposite to Gregg. Angus is a polite, intellectual individual who is usually quiet and well versed in the sciences.
He dresses in rather smart attire, as opposed to the cool punk-rock jacket Gregg usually dons. Mae doesn’t really know Angus that well and is introduced to him through her best friend and his partner, Gregg.
Over the course of the story, Angus and Mae grow close and form a strong bond. This ultimately leads to Angus opening up to Mae and the usually quiet and closed off guy exposes his vulnerability to Mae.
