Episode 46 - Oxenfree

6Feb

It's a new year and with that comes New Year's resolutions. In January, the Playcast Crew resolved to play Night School Studio's indie darling, Oxenfree. In this month's Playcast join hosts, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) as they discuss the game's story, its mechanics, the music and sound, and get super philosophically deep into the game's overarching question: "If you could go back and change a decision in your life, would you?". In this episode, the guys also discuss their gaming related New Year's resolutions, their thoughts on Nintendo's latest creation, Nintendo Labo, and their current literary consuming endeavors. How does Oxenfree compare to other freedom of choice titles like those developed by TaleTell Games? What's in the game's title? And what "weird" hang-up does Rich have when it comes to playing remakes? The answer to these questions and many more in this month's episode of the RF Generation Playcast. You won't want to miss it!
