Square Enix has taken the ultimate episodic gaming step by permanently making the first episode of its hit Life is Strange free across all platforms. From today, July 21, those interested in seeing Dontnod’s curious critical darling can do so without an entry fee.
This includes me. I’ve heard a lot about Max’s story, and I relate a lot to it as a person who wistfully lives a life of nostalgia, wanting for older times. Of course, I can’t rewind time in the way she can, but the tale is said to really resonate by showing what happens when you live your life totally in the past.
Maybe it’s a small theme in the game, but it’s the one that most turned me onto it.
Life is Strange is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Mac and PC.
