A Dangerous Island of Dialogue
This creation combines a multitude of thinking and writing activities, inspired by the wonderful video game Oxenfree, created by the phenomenal game developer, Night School Studio.
This guide allows the students to think on high levels, as they will need to analyze 20 pieces of dialogue and one monologue from the game. Dialogue is important since it helps move the plot line forward. Additionally, it's through dialogue that the reader (or viewer) gets to know, understand, and care about the characters within a fictional story.
At its core, OXENFREE is a supernatural thriller about a group of friends who unwittingly open a ghostly rift. Play as Alex, a bright, rebellious teenager who brings her new stepbrother Jonas to an overnight party on an old military island. The night takes a terrifying turn when you unwittingly open a ghostly gate spawned from the island’s cryptic past.
