Remember how Square Enix teased about a game they were collaborating on with Remember Me developer, Dontnod? Well the curtain has been pulled back to reveal the game Life is Strange, and it’s hailed as a ‘twist on traditional story-driven games’.
Taking place in the fictional town Arcadia Bay, Oregon, the story revolves around Max Caulfield and Chloe, two young women seeking the truth behind the disappearance of a third friend, Rachel Amber. The gameplay will be affected by choices the player makes, as well as the use of Max’s ability to rewind time. The game has been described as an episodic, digitally delivered, narrative-driven adventure game with a hand-drawn art style. You can check out a first look at gameplay below.
“Choice and consequence play a key role in how the narrative unfolds.” – Dontnod
While a release date has not been announced, it is set to be released on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
