The most recent Life is odd game - Before the Storm - was one of the best PC games of 2017.
In the past, Dontnod has always said it imagines a Life is odd sequel set in the same world but not dealing directly with the characters from the original. Well, it stars a 10-year-old named Chris who's obsessed with superheroes.
In a blog spot from Dontnod, the studio detailed that Captain Spirit will be a "self-contained" narrative experience in the Life is odd series, and will specifically "give you glimpse [sic] into Life is unusual 2's brand new story...but only if you're clever enough to piece the clues together!" His big imagination takes him - and you - on a big adventure, on one rather ordinary Saturday that turns into one rather extrarodinary. The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit will feature links to the brand-new story of Life is unusual 2.
If you've not given the series a try yet (and you really should) this is a "perfect entry point", although there will be "nods to Life is unusual 1".
The Square Enix published game will feature an original story in the "Life is Strange" universe and seems to feature the relationship between a father and his son. You will most likely see and discover new content on subsequent playthroughs which you might have previously missed.
The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit has been announced for Xbox One as a free download due to drop later this month.
None of the main cast of Life Is Strange appears to be in Captain Spirit, but the trailer explicitly says that it's set in the same universe.
