Hit episodic game ‘Life is Strange’, from developer DotNod Entertainment, will be receiving a live-action adaptation in the form of a digital series.

“Life is Strange is one of those rare properties that combines incredibly developed characters and storylines with deeply engaging gameplay. It lends itself perfectly to live-action imaginings. We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Square Enix, Dontnod Entertainment and dj2 to bring the world of Arcadia Bay to life in an exciting new way.”
