Game Club: Life is Strange

Every month, participants pick a game to play, then get together and talk about their experiences! Think of this group as being a traditional book club, but with video games. Our host for this month is Robert Denner, and their selection is all 5 episodes of Life is Strange, developed by Dontnod Entertainment for PC, Mac, Linux, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

Join Max Caulfield, a photography student whose life gets turned upside down when she returns to her hometown of Arcadia Bay, Oregon and discovers that she has the innate ability to rewind time. You’ll take a very emotional journey across five days as all your actions have consequences that make the story all the more personal. So grab some tissues, turn the lights down low and get ready for that cinematic experience that proves without a doubt that, well, life is weird.

Journey
Genre: Adventure
Developer: thatgamecompany

Here is Jase’s description of the game:

Journey is the third game from indie developers thatgamecompany (creators of “flOw” and “Flower”) and was published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 3 in 2012, and also available on Playstation 4.

Journey, is an anonymous online adventure often likened to an interactive parable. Travel and explore the ancient, mysterious world alone, or with strangers you meet along the way. Soar above ruins and glide across sands as you discover the secrets of a forgotten civilization.

So join us as we fly high and low exploring the lovely vistas and ultimately meet our end in our own personal Journeys…
