Tell Me Why

Life is Strange 2

Twin Mirror

Life is Strange: True Colors is the third main installment of the popular series of episodic adventure games, launched in 2015. The game was developed by Deck Nine studio - authors of the warmly welcomed prequel to the first part of the series, Life is Strange: Before the Storm. Unlike previous installments of the series, LiS True Colors was not divided into episodes.

Plot

The main heroine of Life is Strange: True Colors is Alex Chen. The protagonist has been gifted with supernatural powers that allow her to read, absorb, and manipulate the emotions felt by others. When the feelings of the people she talks to, which she can see in the form of coloured auras, are too strong, Alex is unable to face them and gives herself over to them. All this makes her perceive these abilities as a curse.

We meet the girl when she arrives in Haven Springs. The small mining town in Colorado is soon shaken by the news of the unexpected death of her brother, who allegedly died in an accident. Refusing to believe it and trying to uncover the truth, Alex strikes up a relationship with the residents of Haven Springs and gains their trust, all the while pursuing the many secrets hidden by the community.

The game's story is non-linear, so the choices you make during gameplay determine what happens to Alex, who she befriends, who she turns into her enemy, who she falls in love with, and how she is perceived by the local community.

Gameplay

In Life is Strange: True Colors the action is shown from the third person perspective (TPP). During the game we explore picturesque (but hiding dark secrets) Haven Springs and carry on numerous conversations. Dialogue choices affect the course of the story and influence Alex's relationships with various characters, including Ryan and Steph, each of whom can become a friend or even more. In addition, we often have to use the girl's supernatural abilities, but it's worth doing so with caution, because the use we make of them often has a significant impact on the fates and lives of others. During breaks from the personal storyline we can indulge in more ordinary activities, such as dressing up (the wardrobe includes over 20 outfits for Alex) or listening to music.

Soundtrack

The game's soundtrack includes compositions by mxmtoon and Novo Armor, as well as licensed tracks from Radiohead, Phoebe Bridgers, and Gabrielle Aplin, among others.

Life is Strange: True Colors stands out from the previous parts of the series due to its clearly more beautiful graphic design. The locations have become more detailed, as have the faces of the characters, which have a much greater amount of detail than in previous instalments of the series.
