Oxenfree’s Night School Studio acquired by Netflix

Big news.

Oxenfree developer Night School Studio has been acquired by Netflix, it has today proclaimed.

“Night School wants to stretch our narrative and design aspirations across distinctive, original games with heart,” Night School’s Sean Krankel said in a post. “Netflix gives film, TV, and now game makers an unprecedented canvas to create and deliver excellent entertainment to millions of people. Our explorations in narrative gameplay and Netflix’s track record of supporting diverse storytellers was such a natural pairing. It felt like both teams came to this conclusion instinctively.”

“Of course, it’s a surreal honor to be the first games studio to join Netflix,” Krankel continued. “Not only do we get to keep doing what we do, how we like to do it, but we get a front-row seat on the biggest entertainment platform in the world. The Netflix team has shown the utmost care for protecting our studio culture and creative vision.”

Night School Studio has recently released Afterparty and is currently at work on Oxenfree 2.
