I've been recommending this game to everyone and anyone. The story, the setting, the characters, the development, the dialogue, and the design are nothing like I've played before. I didn't know what to expect with this game, but I'm glad I bought it, $4 was insanely worth the brilliance of this game. It was easy to catch on how to play, and none of the problems were extremely difficult that I had to look up answers.
I love being scared and startled, and getting sucked into another world, and I finally found a game that perfectly gave that, being a thriller, horror, comedy, romance, and mystery all in one. This is the kind of "make your own choices" game that every game should be. It was exactly like real life where you get to choose what to say and when to say it in a conversation. The never ending dialogue was enjoyable as well.
The only struggle I had with this game was I was never 100% sure I was going the right direction. It also doesn't save when you want it to, but I caught on that it saves whenever you change location.
I'm not going to complain with how much storage it takes up or that it drains your battery, because you should expect that to happen with a game like this. Surprisingly, it didn't overheat my phone like other games have done, so that was a plus.
Overall, I hope to stumble upon a game like this in the future, though I know nothing will live up to the magic of this one.
The best iPhone game on the App Store
I never ever leave reviews for apps, unless they're terrible enough or fantastic enough, and so far Oxenfree is the only game i've found worthy of a five star review.
When I was traveling in Spain, walking 10km every day with a large group of people, the only thing I wanted to do when we finally stopped and rested for the morning was play Oxenfree. This game kept me up from 10pm to 3am for 3 nights in a row until I finished. Any free time when I had ample time, I'd pull out my phone, plug in my headphones and start playing. The game is extremely easy to learn, the art is fantastic, it has an amazing soundtrack, and the story is unlike anything I've ever seen. The characters are all interesting and have a unique personality, so it's like you're really there on the island. The method of selecting your dialogue and the "choose your own adventure" system is fantastic. There's not just one ending, and your decisions influence what happens. My only complaint about playing Oxenfree is that now every other app on the app store seems dull. Even though Oxenfree has made every other game seem bland, playing it was worth it.
Astonishing game with quality unexpected of a mobile game
This is an amazing adventure in every aspect. The game does a spectacular job of immersing you as Alex, you feel a personal connection to the character while projecting yourself into her, with many ways to interact and converse with the other characters, who are unique and interesting. Some meant to gain your fondness immediately while others push you away, as you learn the quirks and personalities of these characters you quickly begin to relate to them and understand why they act as they do. It's difficult not to care and really feel for these characters. The art is beautiful, the atmosphere is fitting with it being light-hearted yet anxiety-inducing and at some points frightening, all while maintaining a sense of a larger story due to how cryptic everything is. The story is wonderful, all while purposefully not giving you every detail as to leave it with a feel of mystery. The voice acting is great and the dialogue is just as good. This game is of quality that I would not expect out of a mobile game, and it most certainly shows.
