Life Is Strange is a story telling game where the player’s choice has consequences. What is so special about this game is that the main character Max has the power to rewind time. Since you play as Max, it allows you to rewind time and changes the choices you make.
Max Caulfield- you.
Chloe Price (yes, same name as the Rookie Blue character) – your childhood best friend that you ignored for the past five year while you were away in Seattle. You met her when you realized she is the woman you saved with your rewinding power. Compared to Chloe from Rookie Blue, this Chloe is a lot more punk, and a lot less hyper.
Kate- a shy, studious girl who got into some scandal by going to a party.
Rachel Amber- the missing girl, also Chloe’s ‘best friend’ while you were away.
There are half a dozen more characters that are important to the story line, but I am not going to talk about them because they are no fun.
You can wander around and look at the world around you and read things to gather information. You would say silly little comments that is indicative of who you (Max) are. There are critical points at which your decision can have consequences. At these critical moments, your choice presumably affect the storyline later on in the game and you get the option to rewind time:
You can also use your rewind power to sneak into someone’s room, steal keys, avoid obstacles and other fun things. Finally, you can also return to the past by focusing on a photograph.
This game has a certain trajectory that you need to follow and the game will make sure you make a choice before letting you leave an area or moving forward with the storyline.
