Over the last few weeks I've been focused on playing Oxenfree, a game by Night School Studio.  The game is part supernatural thriller, part teen relationship movie, with some of the elements from the Sierra Online adventure games I enjoyed playing as a child.  I can't go into the plot too much without spoiling it, other than it involves a few teens that take an evening trip to an island in the Pacific Northwest.

Some of the things that drew me to Oxenfree were the clean and effective graphics, along with the great soundtrack.  Its creepy atmosphere channels Stranger Things or one of the classic Stephen King movies.  There are few games that have evoked such emotion and nostalgia in a long time. The great character development and intriguing story heavily invested me in the outcome of the story.

I finished the game after five or six hours and greatly enjoyed the whole experience. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a rewarding gaming experience.
