Life is Strange was a bit of a surprise. Developed by Dontnod Entertainment, the company behind the ironically forgettable Remember Me, it delivered a compelling, hard-hitting story, tackling subjects videogames have barely touched upon before. Luckily, there’s another season on the way.
Haven’t tried it yet? Read our review of the first episode of Life is Strange.
Dontnod have already said that they would create a new set of characters while retaining the themes and overall feel of Life is Strange if they were to make a second season. However, the decision to go ahead with production was ultimately down to publisher Square Enix.
In an interview with French outlet Alchimy, Dontnod co-founder Alain Damasio said: “I worked as a script doctor on Life is Strange, developed by the studio Dontnod, and I will participate on Life is Strange 2 later.”
It looks like Square Enix were pleased enough with the sales and critical reception of the first season to greenlight another.I don’t know about you, but I think that’s hella good news.
Have you played the first season? Would you be up for another one? What are you having for dinner? Let us know in the comments.
