Night School Studio says Oxenfree's release on Switch lead to 'surprising success'

Switch owners have excellent taste!

Night School Studio is currently working on the Switch version of Afterparty, but it's not their first Switch outing. The team brought over their adventure game Oxenfree to Switch quite awhile after the other versions hit, but apparently that didn't matter. In an interview with MCV, Night School Studio co-founder Sean Krankel talked about how well the port did.

“Steam has certainly been the lion’s share in terms of sales. It really helps to have this ongoing dialogue with your audience, which was helped to create this very long tail for Oxenfree. But Switch and iOS proved to be surprising success stories. iOS is actually probably the most consistent, even to this day. It still moves a fair amount of units every weekend. As for the Switch, I don’t know if it’s just because we hit the right time there, or if it was long enough after release that fans wanted to double dip on it. It’s a great form factor for it – the bridge between iOS and the console experiences. The Switch is probably my favorite place to play it now.”

The past tense of "to lead" is "led" not "lead". For some reason I'm seeing this mistake everywhere lately.
