Life Gets Stranger

by G. Christopher Williams

28 September 2015

With its third episode, Life is Strange gets a little bit stranger.
 

With its third episode, “Chaos Theory”, Life is Strange gets stranger. Sure, this is a coming of age story that just happens to include a teenager that can time travel and has visions of an impending apocalypse, but the story so far has remained fairly focused on the difficulties of growing up and attending high school.

While that focus continues to be significant to this choice-driven, episodic point-and-click adventure, Max’s power in this episode begins to develop in new ways,  opening up the game’s interest in choices and consequences on an even larger scale.
