Quotes

Clarissa: Because it's *scary*, that's why! Have you ever stared into *nothing, and *moved* with it, and felt *apart* in it! It's worse than when we were wilting to atoms. Worse than... *dying*... the first time.

A coming of age tale that is one worth telling
30 June 2017 | by chunkylefungaSee all my reviews

Oxenfree is a majestic, supernatural coming of age story which uses branching dialogue to give real three dimensional depths to its lead characters.

Whilst the game is relatively short, about six/seven hours in length, quality has definitely been chosen over quality, you still feel that you have been on an adventure through the characters dialogue, the multiple paths you can take (and alternate endings) along with the beautiful scenery.

My main complaints are a lack of really challenging puzzles and the short time that you are given to choose your dialogue.

Oxenfree has it's funny moments and at times can be very touching, but despite being essentially a horror game, it isn't scary.

Overall you will be entranced by the characters and their story lines. Just a shame there isn't really much replay value, especially if you get the good ending first time, like I did.
