Oxenfree

released on Jan 14, 2016

Oxenfree is a supernatural adventure game. Rites of passage and Senior year traditions set the stage for a group of friends sneaking off to Edwards Island, an old military outpost with no phone service. Players will take on the role of Alex as she brings her new stepbrother Jonas to an overnight party gone horribly wrong. Inspired by classic cult films like Stand by Me and Poltergeist, Oxenfree is an adventure that pulls from the past but looks to the present. “It’s a coming of age story where players control how their hero comes of age,” says Sean Krankel, co-founder of Night School. “We’re drawing on the fond and mortifying aspects of being in your late teens, and setting it against a dangerous and ghostly backdrop.”

one of my favorite point-and-clicks with a cool mystery. the quirky humor and awkward lines feel intentionally awkward because these are teenagers, not because the writing was lacking. however in retrospect, some of the choices feel a bit odd and forced with not enough buildup.

I've got enough achievements in this game that I definitely know I finished it, but I have retained exactly nothing from this game. Gameplay, narrative, style, everything is blank. This is the definition of a 2.5.

SO GOOD. what a cool platformer game. uses the mechanics to support the story so well; made me feel helpless and loopy, scared and anxious. will never forget my first playthrough

pretty cool for its straightforward gameplay+story -- wish you could walk faster though

Super interesting! A quick platinum as well

The gameplay is pretty boring with barely anything to do or challenge you, but the worst part is how goddamn cringe the dialogue and characters are.
