Dontnod Co-Founder Would Love To Work On a Sequel To Life Is Strange

Posted on November 8, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Dontnod’s co-founder Alain Damasio has confirmed in an interview with a French publication that if a sequel to this year’s surprise hit Life Is Strange enters full production he’ll be happy to work on it – just as he did as a script consultant for the original 5 episodes.

Here’s a translated quote (thanks to Google Translate):

I contributed modestly as Script Doctor on  Life is Strange  developed by Studio DONTNOD. If there were to be a sequel, I would happy to contribute, of course.

The remainder of the interview talks about the social function of videogames, how developing games has changed as the player base continues to age and what makes games so much more engaging when compared to other mediums like film, television and books. Even if (like me) you have to read the interview through a translator it is quite fascinating.

One of our editors recently took apart and analyzed several of the problems with Life Is Strange Episode 5’s ending. I personally was absolutely drawn to the series after playing the first episode and without spoiling things the ending I chose in episode 5 left me in tears. If Dontnod can re-create this magic in an eventual sequel I’ll gladly buy the season pass up front!


PS4 Confirmed, Here Are The Tech Specs

Posted on February 20, 2013 by Eric Bastelak

Sony confirmed the PS4 at their “see the future” press event today in New York city. Taking the stage, the system’s architect outlined the development process behind the console, as well as several key features of the system and our first look at the user interface.

As previously rumored the system is based off an existing AMD APU – said to be clocked at 1.6GHZ, which has been confirmed to contain 8 cores. The GPU is very powerful according to Sony and the PlayStation 4 features 8GB of unified memory, giving developers approximately 16x the ram available in current generation consoles.

There isn’t just new hardware under the hood, Sony’s dual shock controller also has some major changes in store. The addition of a share button allows players to share screenshots, video and upload them onto the web without complicated software. The controller also features a light bar, similar to the move controller, which when used in conjunction with a new camera accessory gives the system the ability to detect the controllers position in 3D space.

Development of the PS4 began in 2008 and features a whole series of new features. We will have more soon, as it is announced.
