Dontnod Announces Free Title The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit

Don't panic, this isn't Life is odd 2, it's something else entirely; a new story told within the universe of Life is unusual.

To repeat that: it's free.

Captain Spirit is being developed by Dontnod Entertainment, and its art direction is directly reminiscent of Life is odd.

So what is this spin-off all about?

Sufjan Stevens' Carrie & Lowell track "Death With Dignity" served as one of the main inspirations for the upcoming video game The Awesome Adventures Of Captain Spirit and it is heavily featured within the game itself. In his fantasy adventures of being the titular "Captain Spirit", his adventures eventually lead to "something truly extraordinary" that will happen to him.

So TAAOCS is in a way, a proof of concept that the Life Is Strange universe has more to it than Max, Chloe, and possibly even the town of Arcadia Bay. Developer Dontnod promises many secrets in this self-contained experience, enough to warrant several playthroughs. The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is coming to Xbox One for free on June 26th.

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is the first step towards showing you the true potential of Life is odd, and the possibilities of a diverse universe filled with interesting characters and stories to tell. There are "links" to stories and details from Life is unusual 2, the directors teased. We get to watch as he goes through his stories as Captain Spirit.
