Oxenfree Creator on 50 Cent, How Xbox Game Pass Works for Devs and More! – IGN Unfiltered #45


Welcome to the newly relaunched IGN Unfiltered, my monthly interview series where I sit down with the best, brightest, and most fascinating minds in the video game industry. I’m back with a brand-new bar/arcade set – complete with a working beer tap! My guest this month is Sean Krankel, the creator of Oxenfree and the upcoming Afterparty. In this interview, Sean discusses his unique journey into game development, starting with a job on a late-’90s Aaron Spelling teenage soap opera (during which time he threw up in Spelling’s bowling alley), working at Disney, and eventually setting up Night School Studio with his cousin and bringing Oxenfree (and now Afterparty) to life – including how Xbox Game Pass has been a boon to his studio’s success.


  1. Love this show Ryan! This doesn't even come across like an interview.. It's just two ppl drinking and hanging out talking about life and gaming! Cant wait til the next show btw tho.. Can you try to get the devs from ska studios? I love their games!

  2. Love this show, but i have trouble processing the stories. The cuts are too quick. I enjoyed the downtime and ums in between from previous shows.:( love the show and Ryans enthusiasm is infectious. Cant wait for the next one
