I’m surprised this hasn’t happened sooner. Telltale continues to pile up critical acclaim and cold hard cash with their low-budget episodic adventure games, and yet no major publishers have been willing to descend from their ivory triple-A towers to take a crack at a relatively unexploited market. Until now that is!
Square-Enix have announced that they’re teaming up with Dontnod Entertainment (the guys behind Remember Me) for a new episodic adventure entitled Life is Strange.
The game involves a high school age girl name Max Caulfield returning to her Oregon hometown, only to discover an old classmate has gone missing. Oh, and did I mention Max has the ability to rewind time? She does, and she’s probably going to be using that power to solve some creepy Twin Peaks-esque mysteries. Consider me intrigued.
Here’s a few screenshots…
Life is Strange is coming for every platform under the sun (well, except Wii U of course). More info should be dropping within the week at Gamescom — I’m holding out delusional hope that Dontnod has been hard at work and we actually have something to look forward to in 2014.
