There are still a whole lot of unknowns for Life Is Strange: True Colors since it was first revealed that we were going to be getting this sequel to the line that Deck Nine Games is going down. The IP has always been an amazing journey for the story and bits of gameplay when they weave in the supernatural elements too. Not to mention the fact that Life Is Strange has always been one of the fancier and artsier titles in the Square Enix tool belt for us all. That all said, we have a new glimpse at the character of Alex Chan to take in to help shape the character just a bit more for September 10th when we get to see how this full story unfolds before us.
This new video does not have much in the way of actual gameplay for this Life Is Strange story, but it does look like it is all done with the game's engine. Here we get a little more inside of Alex's head and more on the emotional status of it all. That is the new power we are seeing emerge in the character here after all. The interesting thing is to see the emotional face poster in the background of the character as the questions keep shifting and digging. All while we get to watch it slowly edge out everything but Anger here. It was an interesting direction choice for the video, as it does not feel like the character is coming across as angry. This could just be how we can expect this Life Is Strange story to go while showing us that there are different forms of emotions out there beyond the stereotypes most of us think of when it comes to expression. I weirdly feel what Alex is portraying while not actively looking or acting aggressively. All of which is something I want to see play out in the larger story of it all.
