Love it. - I’m admittedly a huge punk and usually avoid any kind of suspense/spooky games (Shoot, I won’t even play Gone Home cause something about it creeps me out), but I was compelled by the interesting graphics and the story from the trailer so I gave it a go. This game is great and is while unfolding the mystery is interesting, it’s more about the dialogue with the other characters and how it affects the rest of the story. Naturally, parts of it did freak me out a bit but overall I really enjoyed it and you it’s worth playing it through at least twice. Otherwise I didn’t have any issues with the technical gameplay and everything ran smoothly. It was a little difficult getting a hang of tuning the radio a with the touchpad, but other than that everything’s pretty intuitive.

Not for Laptop - I first played Oxenfree on my iphone4 16g ios10.2.1 and loved the click through paranormal story line. I wanted to enjoy the game on a larger screen and see if I could alter my ending so I purchased the game again on my, but on my 2014 Macbook Pro (Processor 2.8 GHz i5, memory 8 GB, Graphics Iris 1536 MB, OS 10.12.3) and was very dissapointed to find many features of the game plan unusable. No matter the resolution I played in, I could not get through the first scene even beacuse of how poorly it plays on a laptop. Disapointing waste of money, but I’m still a new fan of Night School since the mobile Oxenfree was great. Don’t buy laptop version.

Game hangs the first time you’re asked to “tune the radio”. - Upon getting to the first adventure of heading into a cave (after a laboriuosly unavoidable long discussion on the beach) your character is asked to pull out the radio and tune it. The radio works as does the tuning, but the game seems not to recognize that you’ve done that, and the characters all just stand around… you can’t go back to the beach or into the cave, You can only just walk around the cave entrance. Money back, please?

Beautiful graphics, not so great game - Really beautiful. Design work is stunning. Narrative is a pretty mediocre campfire story. Gameplay generally involves tuning a radio very, very slowly. At a lower price, it would have been reasonable, but you can finish the game in a short afternoon.

Need Help - I will give this a better rating once I can actually play the Game. Everytime I get throught the introduction and Sam’s Picture gets taken with her friends, a window pops up as though something is loading and prevents me from interacting with the game. However the game picture and audio are still running behind this window, I am just unable to play or click anything. Any Advice?

Finally - I loved the game on Steam and was exhilarated when I saw it in the app store. The game could run smoother, but I’m not complaining.
