Life is Strange and, in this game, it is indeed where you play as Alex, a young lady with a mysterious curse/superpower, she can tap into people’s emotions and have those same emotions take over herself, which you can think could go either way.
The game starts with you in a therapy room, you then head out to Haven to meet up with your brother, a small and cosy town where you meet the town folks and get shown your brother’s place which is just above the black lantern, a local bar and diner.
Shortly after this you find out that Ethan has gone missing and you, your brother and Ryan set out to find him, your brother, Gabe, calls off the explosions on the mountains to be postponed due to this, yet as you saved Ethan the explosion went off and took the life of your beloved brother, from here on out each decision you make would have an impact of not just everyone’s opinions of yourself but the outcome of the story as well.
This game allowed you to play and create your own movie with beautiful graphics, heartbreaking flash backs and an incredible plot twist near the ending of the game, a game worth investing time in as an AFK type game, deciphering mini-puzzles and join in on games with the town folks.
However, most likely the only downfall of the game would be that you sometimes forget the controls and might get stuck at a certain point till you start button mashing to get the correct key again to find the clue you were looking for.
Final thoughts: Square Enix and Deck Nine did their best to not only give us a great story with multiple types of outcomes but gorgeous graphics as well where you can see the smallest details from the reflections in Alex’s glasses to the tears running down the NPCs cheeks where you can feel and understand the emotions in the voice lines making it even more relatable.
