The voices in Oxenfree 2 are just as great as they were in the first game.
You no longer have to wait for the next book in the magical, choice-based Oxenfree series. It has a brand-new story with some links to the first game, and it adds a lot of new characters. In Oxenfree, the voice acting and story design were both absolutely amazing. The voice acting here is still just as captivating.
Oxenfree 2: Lost Signals follows Riley and Jacob on their adventures in Camena, Oregon, a town on the coast that is next to Edwards Island. Strange things start to happen there. They have a lot of scary sounds and characters, and here you can meet the talented people who do their voices.
Riley – Elizabeth Saydah
When you play Oxenfree 2, you’ll be Riley Poverly, a character who is much older than Alex and has a child. Even though her view on life has changed, she still needs to face a lot of her past and future while setting up antennas on Camena. But she will always stay calm and keep going no matter what scary things happen to her.
Elizabeth Saydah is the voice of Oxenfree’s new main character. She has worked with Night School Studio before on the sci-fi adventure game Next Stop Nowhere for Apple Arcade, where she played Serra, the game’s secondary character. She also played Myra Castellanos in The Evil Within 2. Need for Speed: Payback and Endless Space 2 are some of the other movies she’s been in.
Olivia – Abigail Turner
Olivia could be thought of as the sad bad guy in the game. To give away too much, she’s stuck in the loop on Camena with her friends from the last game, like Riley and Alex, and she’s ready to risk everything for her parents. At first, she doesn’t like that you’re there, and there’s a lot more to her story than meets the eye.
Abigail Turner plays Olivia. She is an actress who has been in a lot of well-known games. Some of you may know her as Lindsay from the survival horror game Remothered: Broken Porcelain and as Rani’s space hauler partner Becks from The Gunk. Abigail also does voice work for several characters in Dislyte and My Time at Sandrock. She also plays Cali in the comedy horror podcast Hannahpocalypse.
Jacob – Joe Bianco
Jakob is going on the trip with you to help you with the transmitters in the strange, ghostly tracks of Camena. He stays with you the whole game and is a pretty cool dude who wears a warm Ushanka-style hat. He’s pretty chill, but Olivia’s circle can make him angry.
Joe Bianco does a great job as Jacob Summers’ voice in Oxenfree 2. For those who have played Streets of Rage 4, you may have fought waves of baddies as Axel Stone. Joe has also given his voice to a lot of independent games, like Cloudpunk, Skyhill: Black Mist, and The Wheel of Enormous Proportions in Jackbox Party Pack 8. He has also acted with Elizabeth Saydah before as Wrench in Next Stop Nowhere.
Evelyn – Alaina Wis
Evelyn is your friend on the seventh channel of your walkie-talkie, and she also helps you learn how to play the game at the beginning. That’s because she’s in charge of the environmental project that hired you and Jacob to record what you see in Camena, and you often give her updates.
The voice of Evelyn is done by Alaina Wis. She has done voice work for a lot of mobile games, such as Mafia City, Mobile Legends: Adventure, and many games from Do Games Limited, such as Fatal Evidence 2, Christmas Spirit: Grimm Tales, and 8 Ball Pool. You may have also seen her as Candice in Choo-Choo Charles, the crazy train horror game.
Hank – Glenn Rockowitz
Some of the places you’ll need to go in Oxenfree 2 are the empty town of Garland. There will also be a character from the 20th century named Hank calling you on your walkie-talkie through Channel Four while you’re in town. He will give you a short but meaningful side quest to finish.
The most interesting thing about Hank is his voice. This character is Glenn Rockowitz’s first work in a video game. He’s better known as a voice actress for brands like T-Mobile, Xbox, and Alaska Airlines, as well as a writer and comedian who directed, wrote, and starred in the 2002 movie Hacks. He has also written for Saturday Night Live.
The story is changed in some way by a lot of interesting new secondary characters in Oxenfree 2. Now you can meet Maggie Adler in the 1950s and see how Riley gets along with her dad and her brother Rex. Olivia’s friends Charlie and Violet are also well-developed and stand out, as are the other characters who talk to you on the radio or walkie-talkie.
Another amazing thing about them is that their voice actors are new and don’t have many voice acting credits or a big online profile yet. This is their first credit for some!
- Emily Tomlinson as Maggie Adler
- Sarah Wunderle as Violet
- Jojo Leiato as Charlie
- Lev Rodriguez Shivers as Young Rex
- Emerson Boatwright as Adult Rex
- Steven Kelly as Nick
- Rachel Rial as Maria
- Abigail Wahl as Shelley
- Moose Warywoda as RJ
