Square Enix on bringing characters to life and ditching episodes for Life Is Strange: True Colors

It’s fair to say that Deck Nine had a lot to prove with Life Is Strange: True Colors. While it wasn’t their first Life Is Strange – the Colorado studio released the spin-off game Before The Storm in 2017 – it was the first time they were tasked with creating their own world and characters, instead of inheriting Dontnod’s creations. Fortunately Deck Nine successfully managed the tightrope walk of honouring the series’ existing DNA, while still taking the Life Is Strange world in new directions. To find out more about how it was done, I sat down with Philip Lawrence…

I’m a Life Is Strange die-hard and I have hella mixed feelings about the Remastered Collection

There’s no two ways about it: I’m a big old card-carrying Life Is Strange nerd. Seriously, I own some geeky merch to demonstrate my love for this series; up to and including, yes, the official Life Is Strange deck of playing cards. In other words, I am exactly the sort of fan the Life Is Strange: Remastered Collection is geared towards; so you may be surprised when I say that I’m not planning on picking it up anytime soon. I’ll be honest, I’ve been wary of the remasters of the first Life Is Strange title and its prequel Before The…

Life Is Strange: True Colors review: a more mature LIS, but one still beset by narrative growing pains

Whenever a new Life Is Strange game comes out I sometimes wonder how my life would manifest as an ironic and metaphorical super power. I usually stop quite quickly, because I have a feeling the answer would be somewhat disappointing. In the first game, Max Caulfield discovered she could rewind time or travel back to the past via photographs. In Life Is Strange 2, we shaped the outlook of young Daniel Diaz and how he used his somewhat fraught telekinetic powers. Now, in Life Is Strange: True Colors, we step into the shoes of Alex Chen, who can step into…

Life Is Strange Remastered Collection is delayed until early 2022

Life is going to be slightly less strange this September, it turns out. Real life will stay weird, I have no doubt, but Deck Nine’s adventure dramas are getting a bit spread out. While Life Is Strange: True Colors will still be launching in September, the Remastered Collection planned for the end of the month is now being delayed to avoid putting too much pressure on the development team. We can now expect the remastered bits to come in early 2022. Another trailer for True Colors will land tomorrow as well. Read more
