Night School Studio co-founder Adam Hines announced in an interview with Digital Trends that the indie hit Oxenfree will receive a serial adaptation. Work on the show began in mid-2020.
There isn’t much to announce yet, but we’ve already started working on the series. It will be an adaptation of the game, but with new variables.
Previously, Night School Studio, together with Skybound, made a film based on Oxenfree , and in the future, the title could develop into a media franchise. Now another studio will be in charge of the series.
Hines also made it clear that another Night School game, Afterparty, may also receive a film adaptation.
There was a lot going on behind the scenes at Afterparty, but Hollywood is pretty slow and complex.
Oxenfree is a mystical thriller about a group of friends who accidentally open a rift into a ghostly world. Players take on the role of Alex’s girlfriend, who just brought her newly minted stepbrother to a party on the island where everything went wrong.
