Promising Story-Driven Oxenfree Coming To PS4 This Month
If you're looking for a creepy, original story, you need to try this out at the end of the month.
As announced over at the PlayStation Blog, the spine-tingling narrative-driven Oxenfree will land on PlayStation 4 on May 31.
The game follows the tale of a girl named Alex, who brings her new stepbrother Jonas to a party on a decommissioned military island and of course, everything goes terribly wrong. There's a supernatural twist to the story and your decisions will shape the adventure; developer Sean Krankel says to envision "Freaks and Geeks but with possession, time loops, and terror."
The idea is to cast the player in a gripping thriller that is "frightening, funny, and meaningful in varying doses." The game also doesn't follow a strict linear progression, either, as you can explore, talk, and solve puzzles at will. The duo that created this title (Sean and his cousin, Adam) has made improvements "to push the experience beyond anything the publish has seen yet," and this includes transforming the DualShock 4 into the game's supernatural radio. Plus, we get a New Game+ mode that will continue Alex's story "with a new purpose."
The game has already received the IGN award for Excellence in Visual Art and it might earn more awards before all is said and done. Check out the trailer:
