If you’re a Life is Strange fan based in the Chicago area, you might be interested to hear that publisher Square Enix is inviting players of Dontnod’s angsty point-and-click to participate in a discussion group next month.
As reported by a user on NeoGAF, the groups will be held on June 13 and June 14 with a research agency called 2CV. The purpose of these discussions is to conduct “market research”, and will enable players of the game to share their opinions about the game.
Whether this means a second season or a Life is Strange spin-off is in the works remains to be seen. However, as translated by a user on Reddit (via. GameSpot), Dontnod co-founder Alain Damasio has confirmed in an interview last year that after working as a “script doctor on Life is Strange,” he will “participate in Life is Strange 2 later.” If this is still the case, might Life is Strange’s next adventure be set in the illumined cityscape of Chicago? It’s certainly a far cry from the autumnal Oregon backdrop of the first game.
If you’re interested in taking part, you’ll need to send an email to the company, providing your name, email, phone number and age. Due to limited spaces, those who participate will also be paid an incentive.
Life is Strange released on January 29 2015 across consoles and PC. The game has been praised by many, and took home the Audiences Award at March’s GDC, whilst also bagging Games for Change at last year’s Game Awards. A limited edition of the full season released in January this year, which scored a rating of 7/10 in The Palace of Wisdom’s review.
