Last month the publisher announced a partnership with PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center (NBPC) for a special community donation challenge saying ““The team behind Life is Strange and PACER encourage their communities to use the hashtag #EverydayHeroes to share their stories about overcoming adversity, standing up for what’s right, helping a friend in need, and more.”
