News culture Oxenfree: The adventure game on the way to TV adaptation
On January 15th, Oxenfree celebrated its fifth anniversary. The adventure game, which is very much appreciated by many gamers, has long planned to expand its universe through a movie.
The project was initially in the hands of Skybound, which was eventually canceled. Asked by Digital trendssaid the founders of Night School Studio No grudge against Skybound
(…) The very good news is that the project is now (in the hands of) a different group and will most likely move forward, but in the form of a series. There’s not much to announce at the moment, but we started doing it in the middle of last year. It’s an adaptation of the game, but there would be a whole new set of variables. Even at our second game, Afterparty, there is something going on behind the scenes. But it’s long and complicated in Hollywood.
The studio uses the interview too When you return to your projects, you feel an urge to suggest something else
(…) I think we’ll try not to just say, “How can we make things bigger or different?” but “How can we continue to allow the player to act in a story other than simple dialogue?” It can manifest in the artistic direction or the creation of the universe. This can mean that new navigation mechanics are added. We are open to everything. We do not want to be satisfied with supplying the same mechanism with a new story about it.
