Oxenfree II is even more spooky if you’re a tired millennial

When I got a hands off look at Oxenfree II: Lost Signals, my analysis was that it looked a lot like Oxenfree and therefore if you liked Oxenfree you would like this. I have now played through a small bit of the game, a slightly extended version of the area I saw in the hands off preview, and my analysis is… largely the same. I know that’s very boring, but it’s also positive, isn’t it? Oxenfree was good, and Oxenfree II looks to be doing those same things that made Oxenfree good. A 2D, side-on supernatural thriller with radios. Good…

Then I have some good news for you about Oxenfree II. Read more

Oxenfree II: Lost Signals will bring back more spooks and delightful dialogue

You can catch the first spooky trailer right here for the newly-announced sequel that’s coming later in 2021. Read more

Have You Played… Oxenfree?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. If your friend asked you a question – innocuous or not – they wouldn’t just sit there, quietly, waiting for you to answer. They’d continue the conversation with a follow-up query or statement, or they’d change the topic. The point is: they wouldn’t just… wait. But that’s what video game characters regularly do when players are given dialogue options. NPCs shut their traps, eagerly awaiting the cue line that allows them to open their mouths again. The teenagers of Oxenfree don’t…
