Life is Strange

Times have changed... 

Nowadays kids prefer to stay at home rather than play hide and seek in the backyard or to build castles in the sandpit. Now all that kids want is... to play computer games. And I'm not surprised. 

People have created games that are so realistic that we sometimes forget that's just a game! With a lot of details, beautiful characters, huge open spaces, and interesting storylines. When we play, we find ourselves in a totally different world. What else could we want?

I could tell you all about Shadow of Colossus (still in love with this game), Silent Hill series (almost died of a heart attack while playing), Witcher III (really proud that it's Polish!) or Bloodborne (although sometimes I truly hated this game, I would still come back to play it), and other well-known games, but today I wanted to tell you about the one that's called  Life is Strange.

What if you could change the past?


Life is Strange tells us a story of a teenage girl called Max, who after a five year absence returns to her hometown, Arcadia Bay, to attend a photography class. Soon she realizes that there's something wrong going on in the town. While being a witness of a tragic incident in the school's bathroom, Max discovers that she has the power to rewind time. 
Basically, it's a story of a true friendship between Max and Chloe. 

Life Is Strange is a five part episodic game that sets out to revolutionise story based choice and consequence games by allowing the player to rewind time and affect the past, present and future.

I highly recommend you to play it!
