Dontnod made a game that had a smart gameplay mechanic along with a compelling story. Great characters and an outstanding dialogue system make Oxenfree an easy recommendation for fans of interactive storytelling. It's the lack of challenge and underutilised radio mechanic that make it harder to recommend as an adventure game.
Its vocal performances don’t always do it justice, but the underlying emotions of the characters shine through, spinning a deeply resonant narrative that begs to be replayed thanks to the branching dialogue options and multiple endings. Night School Studio’s debut release is spooky, touching, and beautiful, and an adventure absolutely worth experiencing.
I can't think of many games like Oxenfree. It's simple if judged purely on gameplay mechanics but wonderfully accomplished in terms of storytelling, characters and dialogue. If you fancy a supernatural adventure mystery with a smart plot and clever ideas, don't ignore this.
