I'm finally doing the review in english because the game needs you to be fluid in it.

I'm surprised about the game and I falled in love with it. I like this new walking and talking cathegory and its mechanics.
I was a little afraid because I didn't like horror theme games, but this is subtle more like Twin Peaks or The 6th Sense.

I like walking simulators and games like Life is Strange more characters and story oriented than action or gaming driven.

I was a radio operator, then the theme feel specially personal and near to me. I usually like high school stories but this one with the radio as an important character in it got me from the beginning.

I like the elegant way to introduce the characters and make them alive, your main character can include herself in the dialogue but they didn't seems to wait to it like statues, as usually happened in other games. They didn't wait to react to the player, the player is another character more in the group.

I like the graphics, the backgrounds that feel like 2.5D (2D with a little of 3D) with a sad and natural eerie feeling in them and the evocative pixelart. They made that the hardest parts will be easier for me because you can imagine gore or horror as much as you want. You can feel the screen breathing and moving when the story advances, I was not sure if it was my imagination but I'm sure they did it on purpose and it was great.

The music is incredible, sometimes you didn't notice it but certainly is there and you can identify some things by it. And the FX are great, I really feel like dialing a radio and looking for different signals and stations.

The gameplay to me is very good, I get used to it near inmediatelly and get like a instict, not needing to think much about it.

I like the story and all the theories in internet about it, I have my own version and I replayed the game to get the achievements and I discovered most from the story.

The game have a great replayability. Each replay is part of the story, because Alex (the main character) seems to be trapped in a loop. And some of the events and info depends on what you have done before.

I totally blowed up with my friends appearing in my game.

When a game take the time to became real in a ARG, I think that must be something great about it:

Ya me fastidia mucho porque tras jugar el hotel, la comisaria y el principio del hospital el juego prometía...

No, Oxenfree no requiere conocimientos previos de informática ni casca cada poco obligándote a repetir todo, ni tiene una primera pantalla ridícula de luchar contra zombies.
