Square Enix has released a bunch of new screenshots from their upcoming episodic, digitally delivered, narrative driven adventure game entitled Life is Strange. The game takes place in the fictional town of Arcadia Bay, Oregon, where senior student Max Caulfield returns after a 5 year absence. Reunited with her former friend Chloe, the pair will attempt to uncover the uncomfortable truth behind the mysterious disappearance of fellow student Rachel Amber. The title is developed by Paris based studio DONTNOD Entertainment who released their debut game Remember Me last year. Everybody at DONTNOD is excited to be working on such a refreshing title. We’re not only crafting the best game we possibly can, we also feel we’re providing the type of experience that perfectly fits today’s renewed taste for originality and diversity. Jean-Max Moris, Creative Director at DONTNOD Entertainment When we first saw LIFE IS STRANGE we immediately realised that DONTNOD have created a unique experience, something special. Everyone who’s seen the game has instantly fallen in love with its distinctive style and mood. Jon Brooke, VP Brand and European Marketing Square Enix Europe
