Dontnod Entertainment posted a video message on their Tumblr blog to inform all their loyal fans who frequent Tumblr that a new Life is Strange game is in the works.
The team didn’t have much to share, other than that they have some big news regarding the next entry in Life Is Strange soon. The message is short and to the point, clocking in at a minute and a half. You can check it out below.
In case you have a hard time deciphering English spoken through a French accent, the blog lays it out in plain ‘ole text, where they state…
“We also revealed a key piece of information that many of you have been waiting some time for now – we can indeed confirm that the original Life is Strange team at DONTNOD are working on a brand new Life is Strange game. We can’t wait to tell you all about it when the time is right, but for now we are hard at work ensuring it is the very best game we can create.”
This isn’t necessarily new news.
We did have some word from Dontnod before that they were planning on working on a sequel to Life is Strange, so this is more confirmation rather than an out of the blue announcement.
The game followed awkward teenage lesbian Max in her time-altering adventures in order to uncover a murder at the school, help save her Chloe and attempt to navigate her way through the ups and downs of life.
Obviously the game was extremely popular with teenagers, snowflakes, SJWs, and people who understand all those awkward moments in life. The episodic nature of the game allowed them to release most of the episodes for pretty cheap, so it allowed for a much wider spread of the content as opposed to if they tried gunning for the $60 mark.
The animations and lip-synching weren’t the greatest, but for a budget-priced game it seemed to be serviceable enough for fans.
