After being revealed during E3 2018, the spin-off of Life Is Strange, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit has officially launched today on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Unlike all previous entries in the Life Is Strange series, this game is completely free to download for all platforms.
Chris, a young boy who lives alone with his father, loves comics and has a very vivid imagination. During this story, he imagines himself to be a superhero named Captain Spirit and battles “monsters” such as a broken water heater.
Even though this game does not directly link to Life is Strange, the developer Dontnod says it does bridge some stories from the upcoming Life is Strange 2 and contains secrets and Easter eggs. Choices made in this game will also carry over into Life Is Strange 2.
Overall, this game has been received well. GameSpot called it a “beautiful game” and awarded it an 8/10 in their review.
