Published On June 18, 2016 | By Kirk Hiner | Macintosh

In their grand tradition of bringing critically acclaimed games to the Macintosh, Feral Interactive this week released Life is Strange to the Mac App Store. The five-part adventure explores complex issues with an innovative take on story-based choice and consequences.

Life is Strange

Episode one of Life is Strange will cost you $4.99, with subsequent episodes available via in-app purchase. You can also elect to purchase episodes 2 through 5 for $15.99, which will save you about five bucks as opposed to buying them individually. And since all episodes are available now, that kind of makes it the equivalent of binge-watching your favorite show, right? That’s popular these days, the binge-watching?

In Life is Strange, you will:

  • Find your way as Max, a teenage girl struggling to follow the road less travelled and make her mark on the world.
  • Rewind time to change your choices in a story that twists and turns along different paths towards different endings.
  • Enjoy striking, hand-painted visuals and a distinctive indie soundtrack that are integral to the game’s captivating atmosphere.

Life is Strange has very modest system requirements allowing it to be played on almost any modern Mac. That’s good news to adventure gamers, as it received overwhelmingly favourable scores from the games press when it was reviewed on PC and console. It has also received numerous industry awards, including the 2016 BAFTA for Best Story.

Our own review will follow shortly, but there’s no need to wait for that. Head on over to feralinteractive.com for more details or directly to the Mac App Store to give it a go.
