Another game I have really wanted to play, but didn't think it would come to Linux. Life Is Strange is a well reviewed story game based on based choice and consequence.

It's a game that utterly filled my twitter feed with love when it came out, and I was quite jealous we didn't get to experience it. Seems we now get to experience it in fully released glory with all episodes.

Thanks to SteamDB again:
QuoteChanged App Config
launch/2/config/oslist: linux
launch/2/executable: LifeIsStrange.sh
launch/2/type: none


Just for the record again: Being on SteamDB doesn't mean it's confirmed, but likely.

About the game
Life Is Strange is a five part episodic game that sets out to revolutionise story based choice and consequence games by allowing the player to rewind time and affect the past, present and future.

You are Max, a photography senior who saves her old friend Chloe by discovering she can rewind time. The pair soon find themselves exposed to the darker side of Arcadia Bay as they uncover the disturbing truth behind the sudden disappearance of a fellow student.

Meanwhile, Max begins to have premonitions as she struggles to understand the implications of her power. She must quickly learn that changing the past can sometimes lead to a devastating future. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Don't buy on rumour. Besides, any time a new platform is launched, in my experience they tend to run it via sale anyway.

This and this again. Never, ever buy based on speculation/SteamDB.

Make your purchase count, buy it when it's available for Linux and only then.

Precisely I was about to buy it yesterday. But I didn't.
I booted to windows to try the demo, and windows 10 crashed (BSOD).
Well I didn't booted up windows on the last 2 months.
I will wait until it has linux release.

They talked about their non-crossplatform middleware, so I suspect it will be an eON port. Not that it's bad or anything but it matters for some.

Wowser ... didn't expected this to happen! That's great news!

Golden words.
I supported Carma Reincarnation and look what happened... never again.

Though, should this hit Linux, it's a definitive buy for me.

Cool! I won episode 1 on steamgifts, but I haven't played it yet. I guess I'll hold off playing it until we see if it actually comes to Linux. If so, I'll gladly pick up the rest.

I'm kind of excited about this. I remember seeing it for my sister's Xbox One and thought it was cool. Would be nice to have it on Linux.
