Life is Strange - A game about rewinding time

Square Enix, the Japanese publishers of the famous Final Fantasy franchise as well as more recent titles such as Tomb Raider, have teamed up with French developers Dontnod for their new title, Life is Strange. Dontnod are best know for Remember Me, which came out last year. The game places you in Arcadia, a fictional town, where you need to uncover the disappearance of a fellow student who went missing a few years earlier.

Life IS Strange

You assumed the role of Max Caulfield who returns home to Arcadia Bay, Oregon after 5 years. Max returns home to reunite with an old friend, Chloe, and together they investigate the disappearance of a fellow student, Rachel Amber, who disappeared under extremely mysterious circumstances. A simple detective style game? Absolutely not. Max soon discovers she has a very unique ability... she can rewind time.

Here are a few more images just to give you a glimpse of the fantastic art work.

Life is Strange, there's not doubt about it. It's time we embrace this strangeness as games offer us even more realms to delve in to.
