Lost Constellation Ain’t Afraid Of Snow Ghost

We used to be best buddies, and now we're not

If you’re looking for something in the realms of macabre fairytales to accompany the frozen January darkness, take a look at Lost Constellation, from the makers of Night In The Woods.

It’s a short puzzle-based story set in the same world as NITW but is billed as a supplement rather than a demo. What you’ll find is a ghost story told by cats and enacted by you – a crocodile astronomer called Adina.

Talking about it too much would spoil the story but it has that spectre of death quality I remember being equally disturbed and intrigued by when I read the original Hans Christian Andersen tales. Plus you get to build little snowmen as part of the puzzle solving.

Sure - I'd like to be prepared, I guess.

It’s available as a pay-what-you-want game on itch.io, so if you’ve not played it over the Christmas break I’d say it’s definitely one to earmark for a wintry evening in the coming weeks.

    I found this charming, but I hope Night in the Woods is a bit less easy and linear.

    This is a fantastic thing to do in just a month. Psyched for NITW.

    Took me around 75mins to get through. While I liked the crisp visuals, and the audio worked well enough. the story and characters didn’t really do anything for me. Those less nihilistic may get more mileage :-)
    The snowman-building parts brought a smile to my face though, and you can create some creepy looking snowmen with the bits you get given to stick on them!
