[ A Slice of Life is Strange ]

I played this nice little game today. It is called “Life is Strange” and it is a 5-part adventure game. I played the first part today, took me about 2-3 hours and boy, where they some nice, well spent hours.

You play as Max, an 18 year old hipster/geek. She is a photography student in a college in her hometown, a place she hasn’t visited in 5 years. She has friends, bullies, enemies and mysteries to deal with. She considers Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within to be one of her favourite science fiction films and Henri-Cartier Bresson to be one of her favourite photographers, to be honest I was won over by those two facts alone.

Oh, she can also turn back time.

All in all, a fun,unique, crafted with love and care game. Gameplay is okey, Graphics are charming, Voice Acting is quite good and the writing feels very honest.

TL;DR: If you think that a mix of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Twin Peaks and The Longest Journey is interesting then… you know what to do.

  1. “She considers Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within to be one of her favourite science fiction films” …why?

  2. Nope, only one episode out yet. It is a very chill and relaxing game, without being boring or without an edge.

    She doesn’t explain why she likes FF:The Spirits Within, but that movie came out when I was at the height of my Final Fantasy phase and it just… hit the right spot with me. It was one of the first times one of my “nerdy passions” got a mainstream “thing” and the visuals at the time blew my mind.

    I’ll never forget you Aki Ross <3.

    Fun trivia: The girl who Aki Ross was based on has a role in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..
