Oxenfree 2: Lost Signals was officially announced earlier this week at the Nintendo Indie World showcase. The reveal shocked many, as fans weren’t even anticipating a sequel based on how the original endings all closed off Alex’s story.
The game is set to take place five years after the events of the first Oxenfree, following a protagonist named Riley. While there isn’t too much information at the moment, we know that the sequel will be arriving in 2021.
As such, it is time to start speculating and discussing what we want to see in this upcoming Night School Studio sequel. These are the four features Oxenfree 2: Lost Signals needs to make fans tune back in.
A Killer Soundtrack
Oxenfree 2: Lost Signals Features
In the modern age of gaming, soundtracks can make or break a game, especially when it comes to mystery titles. Putting in the wrong background music for a sequence that is supposed to be tense and dramatic can ruin the scene’s entire flow and ambiance.
Night School Studio seemed well aware of this when creating Oxenfree, employing the talents of artist Scntfc to find the perfect combination of catchy and creepy sounds to add to the game.
Whether it was the campier (yet still spooky) tones of Beacon Beach or the creepy keys that accompanied Against the Rocks, the soundtrack fit every situation perfectly.
Since Oxenfree 2: Lost Signals once again explores the mysteries of Edwards Island, it only makes sense that it would also have another killer soundtrack to help set the mood. Fingers crossed they can get Scntfc back for it.
