Life Is Strange Trailer First Look

My first impression of the Life Is Strange trailer is whoa, my heart hurts.

It looks nostalgic and sincere — the music set to the trailer is fantastic for bringing up these feelings.  You watch the main character Max try and drown out her surroundings at school with music as I’m sure we all have done before. As the trailer progresses we see how the story is to progress. You meet Chloe, Max’s childhood friend, who has been on a rocky path since her father’s death.

The two haven’t seen each other until Max sees Chloe’s death.  Max then rewinds time, a power she hadn’t known before.This simple act brings the two into each other’s life as they set out on an investigation of a missing classmate. The small town of Arcadia Bay houses strange events that bring Max and Chloe to start snooping and sleuthing.

“Everybody at Dontnod is excited to be working on such a refreshing title,” said Jean-Max Moris, creative director at the studio, who is working with Square Enix on this title.  “We’re not only crafting the best game we possibly can, we also feel we’re providing the type of experience that perfectly fits today’s renewed taste for originality and diversity.”

I hope these two saw The Butterfly Effect because sometimes a simple change in the past can really mess up the future.

Yo! My name is Mike Davies and I'm a 20-something who has been gaming since I could hold a NES ZAPPER and pull on a Power Glove. I just graduated from a CSU with a BA in English: Creative Writing. My passions are writing, entertaining, and video games. Which makes sense as why for a time I went into YouTube. I landed into the niche community of Pokemon and made lots of waves as a Wi-Fi battler under the name FizzyStardust. I don't do much on that channel anymore, but I do hope to expand in the future into more video gaming and entertainment avenues on YouTube.Some of my favorite games are the main Pokemon series (don't come at me with mystery dungeon), Fallout 3, WWF No Mercy, The Force Unleashed series, and the Madden franchise. Right now my interests lie in rekindling my love for the Pokemon TCG, Hearthstone and trying to learn how to play League of Legends.Star Wars, Buffy Summers, and video games are my true loves.

Have your say!
