Oxenfree is a supernatural teen thriller from some of the team behind Telltale Games’ award-winning adventures.


New indie Night School Studios unveiled Oxenfree at GDC 2015. It tells the story of a group of friends who accidentally open a “ghostly rift” at an overnight party on the coast.

Night School, which is made up of Telltale and Disney alumni, has managed to recruit some great vocal talent: Erin Yvette, who plays Snow in The Wolf Among Us and Sasha in Tales From the Borderlands; Gavin Hammon, voice of Kenny in The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us’s Beast; and Britanni Johnson, the voice of Angel in both Borderlands and its first sequel.

Additionally, it’s signed on Galak-Z to do the music; you may remember this act from Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP.

No release or platform information yet, but here’s a delightful trailer:

Because the title of this game put it into my head, I encourage you all to enjoy this great Amanda Palmer song.

Thanks, AGB.
