Best laptop games: 20 top low-spec titles that won’t melt your machine

In many ways, we’re inclined to describe Night in the Woods as Life Is Strange meets Bojack Horseman. The interactive dialogue bits derive from the former while the overarching themes of coping with mental health issues rings true in the latter.

Night In The Woods itself was developed in Unity by Infinite Fall, the virtual studio where you’ll find coder and composer Alec Holowka and Twitter jokester slash illustrator and animator Scott Benson. Together, these two have created not just a game, but a gorgeous world full of relatable characters that you will hopefully resonate with.

You’ll play as Mae, a cat who dropped out of college and recently returned to her hometown of Possum Springs. As it’s a modern day point-and-click adventure game, it’s heavily narrative-driven, with very few gameplay hooks that will keep your attention. So if you like the Telltale games or Life Is Strange, we reckon you’ll love Night In the Woods even more.

Best of all, it will run pretty easily on integrated graphics, given that it has an appealing, but not highly demanding, art style. Surely, this is a title we’ll be talking about for years and years to come, even if it was snubbed at The Game Awards.
