After Humble Bundle gave away Layers of Fear with its soundtrack, GOG is also in the spirit of Christmas presents and offers Night School Studio’s sci-fi exploration game Oxenfree for free.
While snow or the bearded man in the suit with its bag and sled aren’t present in this game, either, it might still be a better choice to play during this season, as it’s not as gruesome, although the tale about a group of teenagers exploring an island that pulls them into a time-warping experience is frightening in a much more subtle way. With a great art style, soundtrack, and good voice acting, it’s a very polished game in presentation, but the narrative-heavy gameplay isn’t to be overlooked, either. If you want to read more about this, you can read my review. I gave it a well-deserved 9/10, mainly because it has a great story and interesting characters, with the former open for interpretation long after the credits are over.
The game is only available for free until tomorrow, December 21, 2 PM UTC, so make sure to head to GOG and grab the free code before the offer expires.
