Writing gaming news life becomes increasingly difficult with so much episodic content released lately, but there’s still time to give a write-up of DON’TNOD Entertainment’s recent Life is Strange – Episode 2 release.
With three more episodes to go and me having to play Episode 1 as well, skipping the first “previously on…” part of the trailer was a no-brainer. But wow, am I excited now. Who cares about point-and-click mechanics, genre definitions, if this looks as great as a high-school drama sci-fi thriller mix, reminiscent of Donnie Darko with time travel mechanics?
Being a sucker for anything teen comedy/drama/horror related, the trailer just blew me away with some great music and its cinematic camera angles. The animations might not be the best the industry has to offer (also in comparison to publisher Square Enix’ Final Fantasy CGI), but it still looks pretty enough with believable character animations and details in the background.
The game is out now for all console platforms (except Nintendo, but oh well, different story).
