Ox­en­free has no puz­zles wor­thy of the name, but that hardly mat­ters when the mys­tery is fresh and the di­a­logue is fizzing. Be­yond ex­plor­ing and chat­ting, your third job is to fid­dle with the dial on Alex’s ra­dio, but on oc­ca­sion you’ll also face ar­bi­trary tests, fail­ure of which car­ries a heavy penalty. Th­ese add fleet­ing notes of panic, but it’s un­fair they should have such an im­pact on the story, not least given the lack of clar­ity in the speech of your seem­ingly oth­er­worldly ex­am­iner.

De­vel­oper/pub­lisher Night School Stu­dio For­mat PC, PS4, Xbox One (tested) Re­lease Out now (PC, Xbox One), TBA (PS4)
