Life is Strange, the episodic game about a girl with time-travel powers, is getting a new episode next week. (Of course, it’s really about a lot more than that.)

Life is Strange: Episode 4—Darkroom will be available on July 28 for PlayStaton 4, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Max will continue to investigate the disappearance of Rachel Amber and everything else going on in Arcadia Bay.  You can watch the trailer for episode 4 here:

The game has reached 1 million sales, according to producer  Square Enix and developer DONTNOD Entertainment.

Life Is Strange a five-episode game. According to the game’s website, the game “sets out to revolutionise story-based choice and consequence games by allowing the player to rewind time and affect the past, present and future.” Max, the teenager who can rewind time, and her friend Chloe solve mysteries in the “darker side” of the town of Arcadia Bay. As the plot unfolds, Max has to learn that changing the past can have unintended consequences.

Life Is Strange has been praised for its good writing, interesting gameplay, beautiful visuals, and original music.

Parents should note that Life is Strange is rated M for Mature, mostly for language. But it also contains some fairly sensitive content. There’s teenage drug use, depression, and gun violence in schools. That doesn’t mean we don’t recommend it for mature teens, but you might want to have some serious discussions about the story.
