'Oxenfree' Available For Android And iOS Through Netflix

Inspired by classic cult films like Stand by Me and Poltergeist, Oxenfree is a supernatural adventure game about a group of friends who unwittingly open a ghostly rift.

In Oxenfree, players take on the role of Alex, a bright, rebellious teenager who brings her new stepbrother Jonas to an overnight party on Edwards Island, an abandoned military island. The night takes a terrifying turn when the group of friends unwittingly open a ghostly rift spawned from the island’s cryptic past.

Rites of passage and Senior year traditions set the stage for a group of friends sneaking off to Edwards Island, an old military outpost with no phone service. The game plays out over one night, as a group of high school students on an annual school trip to a decommissioned military island decide to “miss” the last ferry back and spend the night on the island.

The festivities are framed by a dangerous sneak to a forbidden beach, celebrating with friends and navigating prickly situations with enemies. But the night takes a horrifying turn when you unwittingly open a ghostly rift spawned from the island’s cryptic past. How you deal with these events, your peers, and the ominous creatures you’ve unleashed is up to you.

Players determine every aspect of Alex’s story while exploring Edwards Island through critical dialogue choices. What's simmering just beneath the hauntingly beautiful veneer of Edwards Island will forever change the future and the past. 

Oxenfree is now available for Netflix members to download on iOS and Android devices – and includes no ads or in-app purchases.

Oxenfree is such a special game to so many people and 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. “As a Netflix games studio, we have the best support to bring Oxenfree: Netflix Edition to a global audience.
