Life is Strange: True Colors is a narrative adventure game developed by Deck Nine and published by Square Enix. Meet Alex Chen, a woman in her early 20s who moves to Haven Springs, Colorado, to reunite with her estranged brother. Alex has a supernatural ability to absorb, manipulate, and experience others’ emotions. Though she sees this as a curse, her psychic power is used to spark friendships, help locals, and discover the shocking secrets that surround Haven Springs.
If you’re a fan of Life is Strange, you definitely need to play True Colors. This incredible piece of art touches on serious themes, includes a heartwarming journey, and recaptures lightning in a bottle. Alex is a breath of fresh air as a protagonist, and her story is raw, touching, and easy to connect with, especially if you’ve ever considered yourself an outcast. If you’re not into the Telltale-esque gameplay storytelling style, this may not be for you. However, if you expand your horizons and seek a unique modern day hero’s journey, True Colors offers more than meets the aura.
Life is Strange: True Colors is available September 10 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Stadia for $59.99, with a Nintendo Switch release to follow later.
