Life is Strange is a game-to-TV adaptation we can get behind

The critically-heralded Life is Strange video game series is getting a live-action TV adaptation.

The third-person adventure game, developed by Dontnod Entertainment and published by Square Enix, was released in five episodes throughout 2015.

A multi-award winning title, Life is Strange will be produced by Legendary Digital Sudios alongside dj2 Entertainment, the production firm currently working on a Sonic The Hedgehog film for Sony.

Life is Strange is one of those rare properties that combines incredibly developed characters and storylines with deeply engaging gameplay,” said Legendary Digital Studios senior VP of development and production Greg Siegel (via Eurogamer).

“It lends itself perfectly to live-action imaginings. We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Square Enix, Dontnod Entertainment and dj2 to bring the world of Arcadia Bay to life in an exciting new way.”

For those of you who’re unfamiliar, Life is Strange is centred on teenage photography student, Maxine Caulfield, who has the ability to rewind time.

The plot centres around Maxine’s attempts to prevent an approaching storm from destroying her home town of Arcadia Bay, Oregon.

The multi-award winning title won or was nominated for multiple ‘Best Story’ awards over the last 12 months, and scooped the Golden Joystick and BAFTA awards in that category.
