By Mark Delaney, 20 days ago
February has arrived and with it comes our latest TA Playlist game, OXENFREE.

From now until March, we'll be swapping ghost stories, making friends (or enemies), and investigating the mystery behind one very peculiar island together as a community. Join us in the TA Playlist Hub where we'll have forum chatter, achievement assistance, and video clips to share. You can also follow along with our full game walkthrough written by KylKo to help you complete the game's achievement list in the estimated 10-12 hours.

Oxenfree launched three years ago as the debut title from Night School Studio, an indie house led by former Telltale staff. It's a 2D adventure game that gives you full control over dialogue and asks you to make many choices over the course of the supernatural story, sometimes even when you don't know you are. It has an aggregate score of 81 on OpenCritic and 3.8 out of 5 stars here on TA.

Be sure to subscribe to the TA Playlist Game Suggestion Thread where you can suggest future games to play, decipher emoji puzzles, and complain that I still haven't included Albedo: Eyes from Outer Space in a poll yet.
