Robert Kirkman Expanding Oxenfree IP to film, merch and more

Robert Kirkman of The Walking Dead fame appears to quiet like Night School Studios’ unreleased adventure game, Oxenfree. He and his business partner David Alpert like it so much that their production studio Skybound Entertainment will be working with the indie developer to expand the Oxenfree IP outside of gaming and into film and more.

“As soon as we got our hands on Oxenfree and experienced this unique narrative driven game we knew that the IP had huge potential and that the Skybound team needed to be a part of it,” said Kirkman in a statement. “Creating multiplatform entertainment in the thriller genre is in our wheelhouse, and it’s great to partner with the passionate developers at Night School to delve deeper into the Oxenfree realm.”

“We are beyond excited to be working with Robert Kirkman and Skybound to expand the Oxenfree world,” said Sean Krankel, co-founder and CEO, Night School Studio. “Skybound have shown time and again that they know how to take weird, creepy, cool stories and bring them to various media in super authentic ways. Oxenfree has been a labor of love for Night School, and it’s clear to us that Skybound will treat our story and characters with respect in games, film, and beyond. We’re looking forward to creating awesome content together and offering fans a deeper dive into the world of Oxenfree!”
