Night School Studio is bringing its spooky adventure title Oxenfree to the Switch eShop, it has been revealed.
Originally released on PS4, Xbox One and Steam in 2016, Oxenfree casts the player as Alex, who travels with her stepbrother Jonas to an abandoned military island packed with hidden secrets.
The game is unique in that it offers a multiple-choice conversation system that alters the story as you play, building your in-game relationships with every reply, statement and question. There's also a radio which allows you manipulate the game world and make contact with the strange and mysterious forces that have been dormant on the island for the past 70 years.
Our friends over at Push Square quite liked it, saying:
It may be brief, but Oxenfree has elements of greatness and stands out as an excellent example of video game storytelling. It's also a beautiful and intriguing game that draws you in from the very start and makes you want to see just how deep the rabbit hole goes. Unfortunately, the situational narrative is let down slightly in the final third where it confuses even itself and fails to merge with the far stronger and more prominent social narrative.
Night School Studio says the game will arrive in October. Will you be downloading it?
