All Endings in Oxenfree

The ending for Oxenfree changes based on what happened with each character. Since they all have their little moment in the spotlight at the end, there is no “bad” or “good” ending. However, getting the worst or best result for each one of them can get you the “best” or “worst” endings.

Here are all the endings for all of the characters in Oxenfree, and how you can get them. If you are wondering how to get the best ending and the secret one, continue reading after we go through all the characters.

Jonas Endings

Jonas has four possible endings in Oxenfree, which are based on his relationship with Alex and Michael’s ending:

  • Jonas and Alex are close siblings.
  • Jonas and Alex are distant step-siblings.
  • Jonas and Alex are no longer siblings and they don’t talk.
  • Jonas and Alex are no longer siblings but they are close friends.

Here are the things that can influence Jonas’ opinion of Alex, pushing them to hate each other:

  • Try to get rid of Clarissa with the ghosts and tell Jonas about it.
  • Blame Jonas when bad things happen.
  • Leave Jonas behind when you head to Parks Office.
  • Stop Jonas from using the time rewinder when he hears music for the last time.

To stop Jonas and Alex from being siblings, you will have to save Michael. You can see how to do that below for Michael’s endings.

Ren and Nona Endings

Ren and Nona have three possible endings in Oxenfree:

  • Ren and Nona are dating.
  • Ren and Nona aren’t dating and Ren is still Alex’s friend.
  • Ren and Nona aren’t dating and Ren hates Alex.

To get Rena and Nona to date, you will have to talk to Nona three times, at the Beach, Adler Estate, and Bridge Stand, and encourage her to date Ren. This means that you will have to stay with the girls and talk before going inside the cave on the Beach.

To make Ren hate you and get the third ending, you will have to:

  • Rescue Clarissa first.
  • Leave Ren behind when getting the key.
  • Try to get rid of Clarissa with the ghosts and tell Ren about it.

Clarissa Endings

Clarissa, the “antagonist” of Oxenfree, has 5 endings that players can get through their choices, which aren’t separate from each other:

  • Clarrisa’s relationship with Alex
    • Clarissa and Alex are friendly with each other.
    • Clarissa and Alex hate each other.
  • Clarrisa’s relationship with Michael
    • Clarissa and Michael are still together.
    • Clarissa and Michael have broken up.
  • Clarissa doesn’t exist.

To make sure that Clarissa doesn’t hate Alex, you just have to be nice to her and don’t agree to the ghosts’ plan to remove her from existence.

Michael Endings

Michael has 4 endings and most of them are based on his relationship with Clarissa:

  • Michael is alive and together with Clarissa.
  • Michael is alive and has broken up with Clarissa.
  • Michael is alive and Clarissa doesn’t exist.
  • Michael is dead.

To save Michael, you just have to convince him to stay in the town and go to college in Camena. Tell him as often as you can that he shouldn’t leave.

How to Get the Best Ending in Oxenfree

The best ending in Oxenfree is the one where everyone likes Alex, all possible couples are together, nobody is dead, and the loop is done. Since Alex keeps getting back in the loop, you have to do this in your first playthrough, without using New Game + to truly feel like nobody had to suffer.

Here is what you need to do to get the best true ending in Oxenfree:

  • Ren and Nona are dating.
  • Clarissa is friendly with Alex and is together with Michael.
  • Jonas and Alex are close, even though they aren’t siblings.

After you manage to get this ending, you will be back where you left, as if nothing ever happened. However, there are multiple versions of Alex that go into the loop. This means that the Alex that got the perfect ending got out of the loop.

The second Alex can stop the loop from happening in New Game+ (Continue Timeline) since she can use the radios to tell past Alex to stop from coming to the island. When you enter the bunker at the end of the game and experience another time loop, use the radio and tell Alex’s past self to not come to the island.

Later, use the radio again to listen to music and break the loop forever by hearing the message and freaking Alex out.

How to Get the Secret Ending in Oxenfree

The “secret” ending for Oxenfree is the one where you break the loop in New Game +, since most players won’t find it having to play through the game at least two times. It is also the closest thing to a true ending, as it finally saves Alex from the endless loop.

And that is all you need to know about the endings in Oxenfree. Check out other interesting Oxenfree guides and articles:
