Easily one of the best received new games of last year, Life is Strange has really propelled Dontnod into the spotlight. Starting tomorrow, 21st July, you’ll be able to download and play the first episode of the five part series for free, and do so whethere you’re playing on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Mac or PC.
The series tells the story of Max Caulfield, who wakes up in class one day having had a nightmarish vision of Arcadia Bay being torn up by a tornado, only to discover that she has a new ability to manipulate time. As you investigate the disappearance of a girl, alongside Max’s hell raising best friend Chloe Price, you alter a branching narrative that hinges on every decision that you make, letting you rewind time repeatedly in order to see the consequences of your potential actions.
Perhaps my favourite game of last year, it really is fantastic and well worth giving a try if you haven’t already.
