Life is Strange Episode 1 Out Today
Life is Strange, a new episodic adventure title, will be made available today on PS4 and PS3.
From the PlayStation Blog –
The first episode that you’ll play is called Chrysalis, and it’s basically an introduction to the world of Life is Strange. You’ll see Max and Chloe reunite and you’ll make important choices that will influence their destiny. You will see some of the short-term consequences of those choices but bear in mind that there are also mid and long-term repercussions that will pan out over the course of the later episodes, in a butterfly effect manner. So you might rewind your choices as much as you want in the short term but you will never know what might happen further down the line. And of course we’ll ensure that you always get surprised by unexpected turns of events and that your experience really feels unique and customized by your choices.
This first episode is also an introduction to the general mechanics of the game, and although Life is Strange emphasizes story and choice over puzzles, you will also see an evolution over the next episodes in terms of how you need to combine different types of interactions and rewinds.
This looks super cool and best of all yet there will be a free trial for PS4 and PS3 owners to give it a shot! Now that is having confidence in your product!!
What do you think of this? How do you feel about the Episodic Business Model stretching out farther beyond Telltale?
