015 – oxenfree 2016 (video game)

Oxenfree is a 2016 supernatural mystery graphic adventure video game developed and published by Night School Studio. The game was released for Microsoft Windows, OS X and Xbox One in January 2016, with PlayStation 4 and Linux versions released later that year.

  • OS: Windows 8.1 64-bit.
  • Processor: Intel i5 2.5 GHz.

  • Storage: 3 GB available space.
  • Sound Card: DirectX 9.0 Compatible.

The game itself also has an alternate reality counterpart. Within the game are radio frequencies that hint to a real phone number. This phone number led players to the Twitter account @xray9169363733. The account posted various cryptic, coded messages, all of which seemed to point to a real world location. On May 7, 2016, Youtuber Jesse Cox posted a video similar to the PS4 Oxenfree trailer, but with several letters highlighted in red. This led players to http://www.edwardsisland.com. Several messages were found, but most important was “MILNER IS WARD”, confirming that a special object would be hidden at Fort Ward, WA. The object was revealed to be a box with letters by Alex from all the possible timelines from the game warning her not to go to Edwards island, and a manually operated tape player with two paper music tapes of songs from the game soundtrack.
