A 3 episode prequel to Life is Strange was announced at E3. The protagonist is Chloe Price and the story takes place after Max leaves and when she meets Rachel.

Announcement

20 min Gameplay

-The development team is Deck Nine Games and not Dontnod that did the original
-No time-travel mechanics of course
-Voice actor for Chloe is different because Ashly Burch is on strike Frown but is working on the game as a writer/consultant
-It will be released August 31

Everything about this stinks - prequel (boring), episodic and no Chloe voice actor. A cash-in on the success of LiS if I ever saw one.

If you like Hipster teens then jump in
But i wonder if it can match quality of first one

However if this will sell 2 million i dont think we will stop on these 2 new LiS only

Hopefully new cast town

It might be preferable.

A lot of the first game was figuring out what happens in this game. So like most prequels it lessens the tension or surprise as we already know what happens to these characters.

Not sure how they are going to spin it.

Shame about the voice of Chloe being different. I liked her in the first game.

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

Probably the fun of not knowing how it will end, might be better

Hm. Ill play it. The big question i have now is will there be a super natural element to this story. Its a good decision to not bring back the same time travel, but a story about chloe and rachel being ordinary troublemakers sounds pretty boring.

Might be pretty good - I’ll give it a play.

I enjoy playing adventure games on handheld systems- PS VITA, Nintendo DS and ipad mini.

^i continue to be a little baffled about this concept, as there is seemingly no supernatural element being marketed here. And chloe&rachel;‘s adventures of being normal teenagers isnt really what i want to play.

I’m slightly worried about the fact that it’s made by a different developer. I’ll probably wait for reviews.

Oh, I didnt even know that Confused Apparently DONTNOD is too deep in developing Vampyr. Let`s just hope that their next big game is Life Is Strange 2 or some other new ip adventure.
