Square Enix Studios recently dropped a new trailer about the next endeavor that’s Life is Strange: True Colors.
This two-minute trailer takes us through the Haven Springs, “A small town with a big heart” and its “set beneath breathtaking views of the rocky mountains” of Colorado.
The trailer comes at us through the perspective of Steph Gingrich, the radio host, dungeon master, as well as the haven maven. You might know him from the previous title, Before the Strom. The recent trailer offers you a top view through the beautiful town while Steph explains why Haven Springs is “the place to be in”. Several new characters have been brought out here, sadly none are introduced yet, just a sneak-peek can be seen at the mini arcade games at the local bar in Haven Springs.
More about Life is Strange: True Colors, Trailer.
“A bold new era of the award-winning Life is Strange begins, with an all-new playable lead character and a thrilling mystery to solve!” the video description exclaims. “Alex Chen has long suppressed her ‘curse’: the supernatural ability to experience, absorb and manipulate the strong emotions of others, which she sees as blazing, colored auras.” “When her brother dies in a so-called accident, Alex must embrace her volatile power to find the truth — and uncover the dark secrets buried by a small town.”
Deck Nine Narrative Director Johnathan Zimmerman explains: “In Life is Strange: True Colors, Alex’s psychic power of Empathy is brought to life through unique gameplay and cinematic experiences.”
“Emotions are expressed by auras around other characters, which can explode into novas of light and color when the emotion becomes overwhelming. Each of these experiences transforms Alex’s world, offering her valuable insights into another person, but threatening to consume her own consciousness at times.”
After admitting the difficulties faced by the developers to bring on the abstract emotions, and struggling with “How to capture something as abstract as emotions”. The Square Enix Studios were able to “push the conventions of traditional Life is Strange storytelling, employing the tangible audio-visual representation of emotive sensations to drive the same response in the player that Alex herself feels each time”.
Life is Strange: True Colors is all set to roll out for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, PC and to Nintendo Switch on 10th September 2021.
