Oxenfree: Finding Certainties in Uncertainties

In this episode of The Longest Rainy Sunday, we look at Oxenfree, a game that consistently ranks among the best fifty games since its release by Night School Studio in 2016. The game certainly has its complexities from the characters’ personalities to the daunting supernatural elements that take over the game when players least expect it. In this episode, we analyze how a game in which we seemingly have no control teaches players to find control, a helpful tool during these uncertain times. We hope you sit back and come listen to our critical take on Oxenfree.
