With the recent growth of the indie market, it’s no surprise that many developers in larger companies are breaking off and createing their own studios. Night School Studio is the recent melding of Telltale and Disney employees. At GDC, they had unveiled their first game. Titled Oxenfree, Night School Studio states that the game is “a supernatural teen thriller about a group of friends who unwittingly open a ghostly rift.” The main focus of Oxenfree will a story-driven single player game that is both a coming-of-age tale and part supernatural thriller.
Earlier this week, IGN was able to get their hands on an extended look at the gameplay of Oxenfree. The video definitely shows the artistic style of the Disney side with the dialogue and narrative focus of the Telltale side. Oxenfree is set out to be released for the PC in late 2015. No console release has been confirmed. They do plan to try and distribute it for consoles. However, no console was specifically stated.
