on October 9, 2014 10:05 PM

Dontnod Entertainment, the studio behind 2013’s Remember Me, was part of Square Enix’s NYCC press junket this week and brought with them their upcoming episodic teenage drama, Life is Strange. We had a chance to watch a 30 minute preview and chop it up with studio co-founder and creative directer Jean-Maxime “J-Max” Moris about his team’s work and what it is they aim to do with this story-heavy and ambience┬ádriven title. During our interview we discuss the game’s atmosphere, the choices players will make (and get to re-try), and why, like Remember Me, Life is Strange will also feature a female lead character.

Check out the full interview below.
