Life Is Strange devs hosting Reddit AMA (also, a new video to watch)

Jan 23, 2015

Remember that Life Is Strange developer diary we posted last week? That’s another one up there! Less gameplay footage in this one yet, somehow, still very interesting. It mostly focusses on discussing the time rewind mechanic employed by the main character Max. She will for example retain the memory of everything that happened prior to her rewinding time...

The classic swords and boards horseback general simulator returns next month with Total War: Attila. To whet our appetite and give us an idea of what’s going on, SEGA have sent over a trailer to showcase The Creative Assembly’s latest efforts.

Life Is Strange gets a dev diary worth watching (two more to come)

Jan 12, 2015

If the word ‘Dontnod’ doesn’t mean anything to you then, well, let us assure you that it deserves to. It’s the name of the French developing house that produced 2013’s Remember Me, a sci-fi action adventure that remains largely criminally (and ironically) ignored. We’re more than happy to see them return with another game,...
