Oxenfree is a fantastic horror game, and Night School Studio has definitely pulled out all the stops to bring this story to life. Its classic Telltale meets the horror movies of the 1980s, and they’ve hit all the right notes. The branching storylines, likeable characters, and underlying dread and mystery really help this game to accomplish everything it could.
Oxenfree exhibits a lot of potential that it doesn't always live up to. Its length is disappointing, and it seems to favor quantity over quality when it comes to the all-important speech bubbles. And that art style and character design is held at a distance; the camera is so zoomed out that the (very limited) overworld never quite feels like home.
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.
