This indie thriller emphasizes your actions and the world around you. Be careful who you talk to, and be careful what you say. Anything can happen in the world of Oxenfree 2.
Reconnect with your past as you explore your hometown, Camena. Play as Riley as you investigate mysterious signals transmitted from the town you grew up in. Work with the town’s other citizens as you try to save everyone you love from an interdimensional portal opened by a cult.

Night School Studio has the perfect combination of setting and narrative to tie this story together.
