I’m an enormous fan of Life is Strange: True Colors and its lovable cast of misfits (it’s a perfect weekend getaway game). This standalone prequel chapter complements the main game perfectly, while also serving as a compelling jumping-on point for newcomers. Set before the first game’s protagonist, Alex Chen, arrives in the sleepy mountain town of Haven Springs, Colorado, Wavelengths allows players to explore the life of fan favorite Steph Gingrich, who first appeared in Life is Strange: Before The Storm, and who plays a major role in True Colors. Steph is a fascinating, charismatic character who dodges queer stereotypes, has room to grow, and presents a complex personality ripe for exploration. More Life is Strange is always a good thing, and Wavelengths hits all the right notes for longtime series fans and new players alike.
