Life is Strange Could Have Had Male Protagonists, Says Dev Diary

By   /   Jan 12, 2015

Dontnod Entertainment and Square Enix are really turning things up with Life is Strange. The episodic graphic adventure has impressed fan and developers alike with the game’s idea and story.

However, things could have been a lot different in the game’s story if the publishers were listened to. A developer diary was released by Dontnod Entertainment recently where they have revealed that except for Square, all the publishers wanted that the game’s protagonists be changed into males.

The cofounder of Dontnod Entertainment, Jean-Maxime “J-Max” Moris explained the matter in the video above:

Square is basically the only publisher that didn’t want to change a single thing about the game. We had other publishers telling us ‘Make it a male lead character,’ and Square didn’t even question that once.

Would you have liked that? I am sure many of the people who are following the game like the idea of a game with female protagonists – something that doesn’t happen as much as it should. It would have changed the game to something entirely different, wouldn’t it?

Life is Strange is being developed for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.

It is going to be released in five different episodes with the first one releasing on January 30, 2015.
