Square Enix just announced a brand new episodic adventure game coming from developer DONTNOD Entertainment called Life is Strange.
DONTNOD is known for developing Remember Me, a game that had a lot of promise, but couldn’t quite deliver according to most critics.
Square Enix describes the game as:
Max Caulfield has been absent from Arcadia Bay, Oregon for five years now. Upon returning home she discovers that Rachel Amber, a fellow senior at school, has disappeared under mysterious and rather uncomfortable circumstances. While trying to uncover the truth Max reunites with an old friend, Chloe, and makes a startling discovery: Max has the power to rewind time…
Here are the first screenshots for Life is Strange:
Jean-Max Moris, creative director of Life is Strange, had this to say about the announcement:
“All of us at DONTNOD we are excited to be working with such an innovative project. Not only are we making a very nice game, but we think it is the kind of gaming experience that gamers have been waiting for.”
Life is Strange does not have a release date yet, but will be released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
I was extremely excited for Remember Me before it came out, but ultimately was left unsatisfied. I really hope that DONTNOD learned from their mistakes and end up making Life is Strange a great title. I am cautiously optimistic about it, so I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.
