Publishers Wanted a Male Lead Character in Life is Strange, Says Dontnod
In the recently released developer diary (above) for Life is Strange, developer Dontnod Entertainment has revealed that some publishers wanted a male lead character in the game, and that Square Enix was the only publisher that didn’t want anything changed. Creative Director Jean-Maxime Moris said:
Square is basically the only publisher who didn’t want to change anything about the game. We had other publishers telling us to make it a male lead character, and Square didn’t even question that once.
The nine-minute video was shot in Dontnod’s Paris studio, and provides a behind-the-scenes look at Life is Strange. We’re introduced to the game’s origins, story, themes and characters as well.
