Just like the earlier three Life Is Unusual video games, True Colors is a very choice-heavy, story-driven game. Amongst these selections is the choice to romance considered one of two characters, considered one of which is a well-recognized face from Life Is Strange: Before The Storm‘s Steph.
On her first day in Haven Springs, protagonist Alex Chen meets a number of people in her brother Gabe’s life, together with Ryan and Steph, each of whom can change into good associates with Alex. However in case you play your playing cards proper, Alex can romance both of them.
We have by no means seen Ryan earlier than; he is a brand new character for Life Is Unusual. Within the trailer for True Colours, Gabe describes Ryan as his finest good friend and we see Ryan aiding Alex in her investigation into her brother’s demise, so he looks like an honest sufficient chap.
Nonetheless, as talked about earlier than, we’ve got met Steph. She is without doubt one of the classmates to Earlier than The Storm protagonist Chloe Value and might be seen in all three episodes. She’s into RPGs, sci-fi films, and loads of different geeky pastimes; she’s additionally a fairly good artist.
In Earlier than The Storm, Chloe jots down that Steph is fairly open in the case of her sexuality, writing, “One other factor about Steph: she’s into women, and she or he would not give a shit what anybody else thinks about it.”
With how a lot older Steph seems in True Colours compared to Earlier than The Storm, it offers us a basic thought of the place this new Life Is Unusual matches into the collection’ general timeline. Given Steph is in highschool in Earlier than The Storm (which takes place in 2010) and now seems to be a younger grownup dwelling on her personal in True Colours, the occasions of True Colours probably happen across the similar time or simply after Life Is Strange 2 (which takes place in late 2016, early 2017).
We nonetheless do not know the way True Colours’ general story may change relying on whether or not you romance Ryan or Steph, however developer Deck 9 has mentioned that the tales tied to getting nearer to the 2 are totally different. Each are fleshed out and impactful.
True Colours is scheduled to launch on September 10. However that is not all of the Life Is Unusual we’re getting this 12 months. Within the fall, Life Is Strange: Remastered Collection will launch; the gathering accommodates remasters of the primary two Life Is Unusual video games.
