Netflix decided to try its hand at game design. She now owns Night School Studio, which developed the games Oxenfree and Afterparty.
The Night School now employs over 20 people, and the studio is developing a sequel to Oxenfree: Oxenfree II Lost Signals. The game is due out in 2022 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4-5, macOS and PC. Everyone crossed their fingers and hope that the purchase of the studio will not affect the development of Oxenfree II! Fans have been waiting for her for a long time.
Netflix is more interested in creating new story titles. They have already experimented with other developers, launching the Stranger Things series of games and the interactive movie Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. An active Netflix subscription is required to play. Most likely, the studio will focus on mobile games (available via the Android Netflix app).
Amazon, then Netflix … an interesting trend. The huge Brontosaurus firms finally realized that video games are making good profits, and with the onset of the pandemic – and three times more (what else to do in quarantine, besides playing?). Of course, no one wants to watch a good piece float out from under their noses, so comrades are in a hurry to join the industry. They thought for a long time, but better late than never. Maybe something good will come out. Big business sharks will now be more active and more willing to sponsor indie developers – and this is always a plus !.
