Manipulate Time In DONTNOD’s Life Is Strange, Coming To PS4, Xbox One, PC & Last Gen

DONTNOD Entertainment, the studio behind the beautiful looking Remember Me, has announced the new IP it has been working on and it’s called Life Is Strange. The game, which will be published by Square Enix, will be all about rewinding time and changing things, with those adjustments affecting the future for good or bad. It looks like it could be a mystery thriller type of game similar to the likes of Heavy Rain and Murdered: Soul Suspect.

The story follows Max Caulfield and her friend Chloe as they try to solve the mystery of Rachel Amber, who has disappeared in Max’s five year absence from Arcadia Bay, Oregon. During this investigation Max discovers her power to rewind time and change events, adding more mystery to the events surrounding her and the others. According to the blog post every texture is “a hand drawn work of art”, and all actions will have consequences.

  1. Holy crap, a new IP!

  2. Sounds interesting, hopefully no combat like Remember Me though.

    • The combat in Remember Me was great. Once you realise how it works, it turns every fight into a lovely punch-filled dance.

      • It’s a shame because i loved everything else about the game from the presentation thru the storyline, art style and setting, and the rewind mechanics provided some weighty decisions. I understand there was a unique methodology to the combat but there was just far too much of it for my liking.

      • I hated the combat in Remember Me, to the point that it killed the games for me. The idea behind it was cool, but she hit so weak, it took ages to kill anything.

      • That just means you didn’t get the right combos to your combo – Which I understand makes no sense as an actual sentence.

        There were effectively power moves which you could add into your combos to make fights quicker, but there were also health regen ones that were really quite useful & there was another that I can’t quite remember now (which is quite ironic in itself for a game called Remember Me!).

        Overall, once you got the mix right, combat was an absolute joy.

        At the very start of the game though, you couldn’t punch your way through a wafer.

  3. Remember Me was great. Shall keep an eye on this one.

  4. Posh-looking, street smart wearing teen girls trying to save their (probably) similar kind of girlfriend from a lot of evil men who needs to be killed with tons of martial art gung ho…..zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    I really hope I’m wrong but I doubt that.
