TA Playlist Game for January 2020 Announced

By The TA Playlist Team,
Along with the recent news that TA Playlist would be continuing under a new team, we also asked you to vote on what we should play together in January. The theme of the poll was well-rated ID@Xbox games that could be found on Xbox Game Pass and we’re excited to now announce the winner, with 38% of the votes, Afterparty.

Afterparty Achievements

In Afterparty, you play as 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. Time to go on the best bender ever as you drunkenly stumble through their story that changes, using an intelligent conversation system, and controls your characters relationships with every decision.

Afterparty is the follow up to Night School Studio’s 2016 hit OXENFREE, which was our Playlist pick for February this year. Like that game, it’s a 2D adventure where the choices you make impact the outcomes of the story. It has an aggregate score of 75 on OpenCritic and 3.6 out of 5 stars here on TA. Also like OXENFREE, many achievements are missable and multiple playthroughs are required to complete it, with completion estimate running at 10-12 hours. To help you on your journeys through Hell, we have a walkthrough for the game courtesy of NoHeroes94.

Here are the full results of the poll:

We’re looking forward to playing Afterparty along with you and hearing your thoughts in the Playlist forums, starting on January 1st.

The TA Playlist is a monthly community event. Everyone votes on which of four games to play, and then we all play through it in the following month. There's a dedicated hub to discuss everything about the game, from story beats to gameplay tips – and of course, you can track your achievement progress during the month as well. TA Playlist was created by Mark Delaney and is now run by Miles, Nici and Chewie.
