Hello to everybody on this great day. I am here today to present you to another nice game called Life Is Strange published and developed by SQUARE ENIX Ltd. Let`s not delay and begin the review. Life is Strange is an episodic narrative-based adventure game that arrived on Android this summer. It was first released on PC and consoles back in 2015 where it earned cult-hit status for its beautiful hand-drawn art style and an engaging storyline that branches off based on the decisions you make in the game. Broken into five episodes, the game focuses on Max Caulfield as she discovers she has the mysterious power to rewind time and relive moments. Without diving straight into too much of the main plot spoilers, Life is Strange follows Max shortly after her 18th birthday as she discovers a supernatural ability to rewind time and replay moments in her life. The story takes place over the course of a week in the seaside town of Arcadia Bay, Oregon, as Max attends Blackwell Academy for photography. The main story has Max reconnecting with her childhood best friend, Chloe Price, as the two explore the limits of Max’s superpowers. During the first episode, Max discovers her powers and experiences weird visions from the future while simultaneously navigating the social world at a private school. The school is littered with missing posters for a girl names Rachel Amber, who just so happens to be Chloe’s best friend to replace Max when she moved away.
Life Is Strange Gameplay and Review
And now let`s go to the gameplay review section and see what is this game about. This game is all about exploring the environment, interacting with other characters, and discovering new information to push the story forward. Each episode features a series of major choices for Max to decide which will affect the story later on in a ‘butterfly effect’ manner, but with Max’s rewind abilities you’re able to peek forward and gain valuable information and then replay interactions to undo mistakes, answer questions correctly, and ultimately pick the decision (and associated consequences) that you’re most comfortable making. The game is anchored around Max’s journal and photo collection, where you’ll always find your next objective and Max’s internal dialogue on the latest happenings in the game. This is a really great feature that manages to flesh out the story while also providing you with important context if you’re jumping back into the game.
