We’re taking a brief break from working on OXENFREE II: Lost Signals to bring something to the Tribeca Festival that we’re really excited about.
It’s the first time the public will be able to play a demo of the game. There’s also an incredible slate of official selections in competition at the festival: A Plague Tale: Requiem, American Arcadia, As Dusk Falls, Cuphead: Delicious Last Course, Immortality, The Cub, Thirsty Suitors, and Venba. It’s an honor to show off our game among such incredible company.
What’s in the demo?
You’ll play as Riley Poverly: an environmental researcher tasked with investigating strange radio signals in Camena, near Edwards Island, the setting of the original OXENFREE. But something unusual is happening in the quiet coastal town.
A mysterious portal has opened and the only way to stop it is to target a coordinated signal to the island using three radio transmitters.
You’re traveling with Jacob–a co-worker and old acquaintance–to Charity Point in order to set up one such signal. The path will not be as easy as expected. You’ll get unusual calls on your walkie talkie. There will be cliffs along the treacherous path. You might even travel back in time.
Just like in OXENFREE, you will make critical decisions at every turn, determining Riley’s fate at the most pivotal time of her life. And, it’ll be while there’s a truly terrifying supernatural threat looming on the horizon.

This year, Tribeca Games is happening in person at the Games Gallery at Spring Studios in NYC or you can also play at home. Demos begin June 11 and end June 19 with limited slots available. Head to https://tribecafilm.com/games for more information and to buy tickets.
