Oxenfree is a fabulously unique video game that takes the form of a supernatural, teenage coming-of-age adventure.
The opening scene of the game, developed by Night School Studio, depicts a group of teenagers drinking on an isolated beach near an abandoned military base. From there, the game proceeds and takes you on an adventurous tryst that includes encounters with frightening creatures, people and scenes with the risk of treacherous outcomes. The main protagonist of this supernatural game is a high school senior named Alex, who embarks on a fateful journey with her friends. The player has to choose what Alex does, where she goes and what she says.
The coming-of-age genre has long been hugely popular in the worlds of film, TV and books, but its reinterpretation in the form of the Oxenfree video game allows for a truly unique kind of engagement with the genre.
