TA Playlist is Live for January 2020 With Afterparty

By The TA Playlist Team,
The first month of the TA Playlist being under new management is now live! After a poll focusing on well-regarded indie games, Afterparty was chosen as the community's first TA Playlist game of 2020. For those with a subscription, you'll be pleased to know that you can download Afterparty from your Xbox Game Pass games list.


Afterparty was developed by Night School Studio, the same team behind previous TA playlist game Oxenfree. Afterparty reviews have been reasonable with it currently being sat at 75 on Metacritic, although only sitting at around 3.6 here on TA. Just under 10,000 of you have it registered on your tag at the moment.

As the game’s protagonists, be prepared outdrink the denizens of the Underworld, including Satan himself, on your quest to escape from Hell. If you get stuck during your hunt for those Afterparty achievements, there’s an amazing walkthrough on site, courtesy of NoHeroes94.

Join us in the TA Playlist Hub this month as we discuss drinking tactics while enjoying this darkly humorous story, eventually facing off against the Master of Hell himself. As always, you can participate by adding the game to your tag by popping an achievement, or if you’ve already finished it, by adding a comment in the forums.


In Afterparty, you are 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.

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.
