Life is about to get stranger with this freebie
If you’ve not yet experienced the narrative goodness that is Life Is Strange, now would be as good a time as any to see what the fuss is all about. Especially since the game’s first episode will be available to download for free indefinitely starting from July 21st.
For those not in the know, it’s a five-part episodic story where the plot centers around a photography senior named Max Caulfiel. She discovers that she can rewind time while saving her best friend Chloe Price and the two friends join forces to investigate the disappearance of fellow student Rachel Amber. In doing so, they uncover dark secrets under the surface of life in their town. It places heavy emphasis on narration and consequence, and has been a critical hit.
“Although our team set out to create an award-winning narrative we still cannot believe the response we’ve had from players of Life is Strange“, CEO of Dontnod Entertainment Oskar Guilbert was quoted as saying. “We’re really glad that Square Enix have decided to give the first episode away for free so more players can begin their journey and see why people have fallen in love with the game for themselves.”
