Oxenfree Devs’ New Game ‘Next Stop Nowhere’ Hits Apple Arcade Today
Night School Studios, the studio behind Oxenfree and Afterparty, just released their latest story-driven game, Next Stop Nowhere, on Apple Arcade.
Night School Studios, the studio behind Oxenfree and Afterparty, just released their latest story-driven game on Apple Arcade. Revealed last week, Next Stop Nowhere got a brief teaser trailer and then Night School dropped more information about the game in a Twitter thread featuring the characters from the game and a few details about them.
Today, following the game’s launch on Apple’s exclusive gaming platform, Night School finally released a trailer for their sci-fi road trip. Showcasing a lot of the hallmarks of a game by Night School Studios, like branching dialogue trees and small interactive elements to discover throughout the world, the trailer delivers a strong showing for Next Stop Nowhere.
The launch trailer already had me personally very excited for the game (and hopeful that it’ll come to a platform that I have access to), but then, Sean Krankel, the founder and creative director at Night School took to Twitter to talk about the various inspirations that he drew for the game. Based on what he said, the trailer’s talk about a bounty and its high stakes are only half the story.
Based on a lot of the inspirations he and his team drew, the game is sure to be tinged with comedic and classic feel-good road trip goodness.

While Apple Arcade games don’t usually release on Andriod, it’s not uncommon for them to find their way to PC and consoles, like What the Golf? However, at this point, Night School hasn’t said anything about a release on other platforms for Next Stop Nowhere, so if you’re looking for a fun, short, text-based adventure game on consoles or PC, you might want to look at some of the studio’s other games, like Oxenfree.
