Return to your childhood with a touching and heart-warming, one-of-a-kind narrative experience, from the directors and development team behind the BAFTA award winning game LIFE IS STRANGE™. Chris is an ordinary 10-year old boy who wants to be a super hero. He loves his toys and has a big imagination that takes him on all sorts of adventures, but today is not one of his usual adventures, today something truly extraordinary will happen to him. DONTNOD Entertainment is back with an all-new original and endearing story that will let you experience a slice of young Chris' life, as he turns an ordinary Saturday into an epic superhero adventure.

THE AWESOME ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN SPIRIT™ is not LIFE IS STRANGE 2, but is the first step towards the highly anticipated sequel. The episode is a self-contained narrative experience allowing players to discover plenty of hidden secrets with each play-through. THE AWESOME ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN SPIRIT™ will feature links to the brand-new story and characters of LIFE IS STRANGE 2.

THE AWESOME ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN SPIRIT™ should, like the releases of the mobile versions of LIFE IS STRANGE, contribute to maintain the dynamics of sales of the first opus of the franchise.

We're very excited to present THE AWESOME ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN SPIRIT™. We have created a self-contained narrative experience that's brimming with content – the deeper you dig, the more you will discover. We're happy to announce that we will be giving away this content completely free of charge.” – said Jon Brooke, VP of Brand and European Marketing at SQUARE ENIX.

We have always imagined LIFE IS STRANGE™ as a diverse universe filled with interesting characters and stories to tell. THE AWESOME ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN SPIRIT™ and the story of Chris is one of many stories that we really want to share with the world.” – said Michel Koch and Raoul Barbet, Creative Directors of Life is Strange at DONTNOD Entertainment.
