We were a little late to party when it came to the original Life is Strange. The small town adventure game that blended time-bending sci-fi concepts with high-school drama. Needless to say we were blown away by just how memorable, engaging, and, well, awesome it was. Which meant that we were definitely excited to play the new prequel series Life is Strange: Before the Storm.
Which just wrapped up its three episode arc before the holiday break.
Life is Strange Before the Storm, for those that need a reminder, is a prequel series that follows the exploits of Chloe Price - a secondary but important character from the first game. A cool idea right off the bat, but as Chloe wasn’t tuned in to protagonist Max’s time-bending abilities and powers this meant that any Chloe-centric story would, by design, do away with the sci-fi angle of the original Life is Strange. And opt for something different. Well, not exactly different but the relationships between the characters would ultimately become the focal point of any prequel. And with Before the Storm using Chloe’s journey and formative relationship with Rachel Amber as the anchor, it works.
