Life Is Strange

I’ll start by saying what I didn’t really like about this game, and that’s that the dialogue can be a bit too teens-of-today for my taste, but man, I sure enjoyed being in this world, and playing through this first episode. The visuals have a really nice feel to them – there’s a great painterly effect on things – and the setting is beautiful (Pacific Northwest). The time control mechanic is also neat, and they do a good job of incorporating it within the puzzles. I’m a huge fan of the Telltale games, but it’s nice to see an adventure game that plays and looks so different. Can’t wait for the next episodes to come out.
