In single-player or multiplayer, Hidden Agenda is a game in which winning almost always feels like losing.
The game is always concerned with telling a story rather than selling us the gimmick of player agency.
Players will remain invested in a story that, if not entirely original, remains exciting and poignant in equal measure.
It’s the mix of the mundane and the mercurial that makes Life Is Strange worth living.
It lives up to its title, as players will be glued to it all night, exhilaratingly racing to one of the many potential endings.
Gamers appear to be ready for developer ambition when it comes to not just the quality of the games, but how to play them.
