Life is Strange, Square Enix and Dontnod’s incredible coming-of-age series from last year, is getting a live-action adaptation in the form of a digital series. The series is coming from Legendary’s Digital Studios division, which has created films such as Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, starring Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart. This announcement comes from Life is Strange’s Tumblr, though there are no other details at the moment.
Life is Strange’s beautiful story about high schoolers Max and Chloe reconnecting and searching for their missing friend after Max gains the ability to rewind time could make the transition perfectly. Its story is remarkably human and portrays life in far more real ways than most games. Life is Strange relies heavily on player choice, however, so it will be interesting to see what version of the story they go with (especially given the hugely different endings).
If you haven’t played Life is Strange yet, there’s only one way to say this: play Life is Strange right now. As of last week, the first episode if available for free on almost every platform (PC, Mac, Linux, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One). This series deals with issues such as death, moving on, love, mental illness and suicide with stunning nuance, and its positive portrayal of young women is something all games could learn from.
