This game's characters are well developed! The radio dial tuning part of the game's really cool! Topics of this game include: time loop, memory or time displacement, possession, and ultimately talking to alt realities! Tbh, it is time-consuming to achieve this game's "perfect ending" (but worth it). When you finish first playthrough, it goes into like a "new game plus" mode where it worded as "continue timeline". Its funny that your main character and the radio ghosts are conscious of this. The only thing i do not like is that their isnt like a stats tab or something to see all of your playthroughs like Detroit Becoming Human game. Other than that, this game's the bomb dot com!!

A genuinely creepy creation, Oxenfree combines a clever story and smart dialogue mechanics with superbly sinister music to leave a deep and lasting impression on the player, one that should encourage an all-important second playthrough. Fans of Stranger Things and Poltergeist will love the direction this game takes – if not to hell and back, exactly, then absolutely to some other place where horrors abound, just waiting for an invitation into our world. It’s yet another Switch essential.

Oxenfree is fascinating. It’s best played in a relaxing spot, free of distraction, so the immersion can be best enjoyed. It’s short and different, but there is replay value. There’s not anything outside of what you can do with the story of the game, other then interact with the world itself. But it’s exciting to come back and see how choices can change the plot of the game. Not quite a Telltale-level game, but also not something to pass up. The beautiful visuals, characters, and choices are why I came back to it. And with that radio you just can’t “turn that down”.

Peel back the layers of mystery and intrigue, and what underpins Oxenfree is remarkably simple in approach. With nuanced storytelling at its ghostly heart, the pacing to this coming-of-age tale suffers in places but it will still enthral like no other. For Edwards Island holds many secrets, it just depends whether you want to stick around long enough to learn the truth about them all.
