Netflix releases Oxenfree game for its users
The popular game joined Netflix’s catalog of games but is particularly notable for being an in-house release, the report said.
The game sees players take on the role of Alex, a rebellious teenager who brings her new stepbrother Jonas to an overnight party on Edwards Island, which is an abandoned military island. The night then takes a turn when the group of friends unintentionally opens a ghostly rift spawned from the island’s cryptic past. Throughout the game, players choose every aspect of Alex’s story while exploring the island through dialogue choices.
“Oxenfree is such a special game to so many people. Launching on Netflix is a really exciting opportunity for us to introduce Alex’s story to even more people. Maybe even someone who never thought they’d love playing a game” said Sean Krankel, co-founder and studio director at Night School Studio, in a statement.
Users can now download the new “Netflix Edition” of the Oxenfree game from Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store.
