Life Is Strange 2’s reveal trailer introduces us to the Diaz brothers

The Life Is Strange series isn't known for telling the happiest of stories, but the Gamescom reveal trailer for Dontnod's sequel Life Is Strange 2 wastes no time in letting you know that this one is going to be a downer. The video below gives us a brief introduction to the young Diaz brothers - Sean and Daniel - and gives us some hints as…

Life Is Strange 2 trailer teases a super superpower

As you may well have guessed after the superhero antics in Life Is Strange 2's free playable side story, The Awesome Adventures Of Captain Spirit, it seems the sequel may well play with powers far less subtle than time travel. Ahead of the game's "reveal" later this month, a new wee teaser trailer shows a cop car (+associated cop) being flipped by something resembling a…

Life Is Strange 2’s first episode is due out in September

The first episode of Life Is Strange 2 will arrive on September 27. Dontnod's Twitter account has announced the release date, along with a painfully brief teaser displaying only the title and the series length: five episodes. Beyond that, the developers are keeping quiet. For more details we’ll need to wait until August.

Dontnod’s Captain Spirit reminds us that we’ve become old and dead inside

Life is Strange was always promised to be a big complicated weirdo universe. I thought Dontnod started fulfilling that promise when they setup the expansion/prequel Before The Storm and let us explore superpower-less backstories. But here's a bit of something completely different: The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit; an original story set in the Life is Strange universe and taking on a completely different style…

Life Is Strange: Before The Storm’s final episode out now

Tragic teen tale Life Is Strange: Before The Storm has concluded with the launch of its third episode last night. Before The Storm is the prequel to 2015's wonderful third-person coming-of-ager, doing away with the time-travel powers as it focuses on wild rebel Chloe and her gal pal Rachel Amber. It's a story whose final ending was already known, but I'm told life is about…

Life Is Strange original voices return for Before the Storm bonus ep

The voice actor behind spunky punky teen rebel Chloe in the original Life Is Strange, Ashly Burch, will reprise her role in the bonus episode of prequel series Life Is Strange: Before the Storm. While Chloe is the main character in Before the Storm, Burch couldn't play her because of the voice actor strike so publishers Square Enix replaced her with another actor, Rhianna DeVries.…

Clickuorice Allsorts: Making good detective games

Detective games are a strange genre because it's so rare they manage to conjure up the feeling of you being a great detective. They fail for a range of reasons but my solution to the genre's struggle has tended to be that you should play as Watson not Sherlock or Hastings not Poirot - there's a reason the books are often from the perspective of…

9 whole minutes of Life is Strange: Before The Storm

As someone who loved Life if Strange and will probably play Life is Strange: Before the Storm [official site] immediately I have been avoiding pretty much all news and spoilers regarding the latter. To the point where I will a) not be watching this 9-minute video at all and b) don't actually know what the game involves other than being set before the first game.…

Give me a hella yeah: more Life Is Strange coming

We loved Life Is Strange [official site] here at RPS. Even though we're so old that we had to Ask Jeeves (.com) what all of the slang its characters used actually meant, we fell in love with the autumnal world and the people sighing and struggling through their strange little lives. In a tale as old as time-manipulation, a photography student uncovers mystery and rekindles…

Weird: Life Is Strange Live-Action Series Announced

The fab time-travelling teen drama Life Is Strange [official site] is to become a live-action television series, Square Enix announced today. Or whatever it is we're supposed to call television shows made for cybernet screens. A "digital series", they say. Netflix or something, perhaps? We don't know who what where when - or why, really - but we do know Squeenix have partnered with Legendary's…

Life Is Strange Episode 1 Going Free Tomorrow

The full first episode of Life Is Strange [official site] will tomorrow be set free forever. We've written a lot about one of our favourite games of 2015, about individual episodes as they each came out and giving them the Fail Forward and Cogwatch treatments and... it's weird to be thinking about Episode 1 again. Now knowing where Life Is Strange was going and what…

Life Is Strange Mod Gives Max An Emo Makeover

It didn't occur to me that people might mod Life Is Strange [official site] - I guess it seemed a better fit for Tumblr cosplay and fanfiction and fan art so I didn't really think about people tweaking the original until the Max Punk mod turned up. The idea is that it converts Max's clothing, makeup and hair to present her more in line with…

Life Is Strange Director’s Commentary Released

As much as I like Life Is Strange [official site], I'll not pick up the episodic magiteen story's new boxed Limited Edition. I will, however, gladly reap the benefits of this gussied-up new release. A new patch is out now for everyone, bringing improved subtitles in loads more languages, for starters. The promised Director's Commentary is now here too, free for folks who own the…

New Vampyr Details From Life Is Strange Developer

Although announced prior to the start of episodic adventure Life Is Strange earlier this year, Vampyr [official site] was thereafter resigned to the shadows cast by its Spanish flu-ridden early 20th century London cityscape setting. Developers DONTNOD Entertainment have only now revealed more about their upcoming vampire-infused action RPG.
