According to some leaked screenshots, it seems like we could be in store for a Life is Strange prequel in the near future.
The original Life is Strange, developed by Dontnod Entertainment and published by Square Enix, was widely considered a surprise hit in 2015. The game followed the adventures of Max Caulfield, a high school senior who discovers that she has the ability to rewind time. While the original game focused mainly on Max and her relationship with Chloe, it appears that this prequel will instead focus on Chloe and her relationship with Rachel.
The screenshots were found in this gallery that was anonymously uploaded to Imgur. There are nine images altogether, eight screenshots and one piece of branded concept art. You’ll also notice in the screenshots that this is a Chloe who has yet to dye her hair fully blue.
If you remember, Dontnod took to Twitter no too long ago to celebrate Life is Strange selling over 3 million copies and to announce that they would be working on a second Life is Strange game. However, this prequel is not the game they were talking about. This prequel will actually be in the hands of the Denver studio, Deck Nine Games.
Previously known as Idol Minds, this development studio is best known for making games like Cool Boarders 3, Rally Cross 2, and Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal. Two days ago, the team announced that they will be rebranding as Deck Nine to signify their shift toward more narrative-focused games.
