I am not sure anyone expected Life is Strange at all. The Tumblr feminists almost convinced me that there is no such thing as games with strong female leads – especially high budget ones. Square Enix itself was never a company I considered… Well, I do enjoy my Tomb Raiders, but that is a different kind of experience. It is like expecting Blizzard to release a racing game, you know. Not very likely.
And yet somehow Life is Strange came into existence; and I am unbelievably glad it did.
