Tell Me Why is an episodic adventure game developed by Dontnod Entertainment, the team that created the popular Life is Strange series.


Tell Me Why takes us to the frosty Alaska, or, to be precise, to the fictional town of Delos Crossing. During the game we follow the fate of Alyson and her transgender brother Tyler. After ten years of separation, twins return to their homeland to remember their difficult childhood and solve the mysteries of the past. The siblings have a specific bond and their future depends on the decisions we make. The game is driven by the memories of key moments in the life of the characters; how they remember them will affect both their future lives and relationship.


Tell Me Why does not differ from what we are used to by adventure games created by Dontnod Entertainment. While playing, we control Tyler and Alyson alternately. By following the plot and making choices that determine its further course, we explore locations, conduct conversations and interact with the environment in a variety of ways.

Technical aspects

Tell Me Why has been divided into three episodes released at regular intervals. From the visual point of view, the game looks pleasant, especially the characters were designed with great attention to detail.
