Supernatural Thriller Oxenfree Announced

By Ellis Spice, 2 years ago
At the Game Developers Conference over in San Francisco, indie developers Night School Studio, which features Telltale and Disney alumni among its staff, have announced Oxenfree, a supernatural teen thriller about a group of high school senior friends who unintentionally open a ghostly rift on a former military base island. Players take control of Alex, who has brought her new step-brother Jonas along for this overnight party on the coast about to go awry.

Alongside the announcement of the game, Night School have also released a reveal trailer and screenshots for the title:

For some of you, some of the voices and music from the trailer will be familiar. Included in the vocal talent in Oxenfree are Erin Yvette (Snow in The Wolf Among Us and Sasha in Tales from the Borderlands), Gavin Hammon (Kenny in The Walking Dead and Beast in The Wolf Among Us) and Britanni Johnson (Angel in the Borderlands series), while the music comes from Scntfc, known for producing tracks for Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP and remixes for Fez.

No platforms or release details have been released for Oxenfree at this time, but we'll be sure to share when we know more!
