Remember Me dev and Square Enix team up for new episodic game Life is Strange

Posted on August 11, 2014 AT 07:53am

Square Enix has partnered with Dontnod Entertainment, the Paris-based studio that developed Remember Me, to release a new, episodic, narrative driven adventure game titled Life is Strange.

The game will take place in the fictional town of Arcadia Bay, Oregon, where senior student Max Caulfield returns after a 5 year absence. While there Max reunites with her former friend Chloe, and the pair attempt to uncover the truth behind the disappearance of fellow student Rachel Amber.

Life is Strange features a story-driven experience where consequence plays a key role in determining how the story will unfold. The game mixes things up with Max’s unique power to rewind time, meaning “the player has the power to affect the game’s narrative and also change the course of history itself.”

“Everybody at DONTNOD is excited to be working on such a refreshing title,” said Jean-Max Moris, Creative Director at Dontnod Entertainment. “We’re not only crafting the best game we possibly can, we also feel we’re providing the type of experience that perfectly fits today’s renewed taste for originality and diversity.”

“When we first saw Life is Strange we immediately realised that Dontnod have created a unique experience, something special,” added Jon Brooke, VP Brand and European Marketing Square Enix Europe. “Everyone who’s seen the game has instantly fallen in love with its distinctive style and mood.”

Life is Strange is in development for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
