Ratings and Reviews
Beautifully Original from start to finish
I have never considered myself a gamer. But the other day I decided to give this game a try. The videos games I have seen and viewed, to me, tend to all have the same style and consistantly try to grab your money. But there is nothing quite like OXENFREE. The gamer not only gets to live the life of a teenage girl but gets to control it throughout this magnificant adventure. Ever minute you spend playng the game, you are in control. It is almost like gaming in a #1 New Your Times Best seller novel. With this purchase, not only do you get a wonderfully executed game but you get a taste of how the game was created. With only a staff of about 5 people, Night School Studios hit the ball into another dimension. My hope is that Night School Studios continues to create games like OXENFREE.
I’m admittedly a huge punk and usually avoid any kind of suspense/spooky games (Shoot, I won’t even play Gone Home cause something about it creeps me out), but I was compelled by the interesting graphics and the story from the trailer so I gave it a go. This game is great and is while unfolding the mystery is interesting, it’s more about the dialogue with the other characters and how it affects the rest of the story. Naturally, parts of it did freak me out a bit but overall I really enjoyed it and you it’s worth playing it through at least twice.
Otherwise I didn’t have any issues with the technical gameplay and everything ran smoothly. It was a little difficult getting a hang of tuning the radio a with the touchpad, but other than that everything’s pretty intuitive.
I've never written a review before but this is a great game and should have better reviews. Almost all the bad reviews are complaing about apple game center disrupting their game play. It is a game not a scary movie so it does require the player to keep moving things foward. Its also reflective of what a real experience would be like. I think that is the best part of this game. It allows the player to to connect to the game on a very deep level making each players experience unquie. Those who always skip cut scenes to get to the action might not be crazy about this game.
