PLOT – Without spoilers
We won’t give any Life is Strange: True Colors spoilers because it’s a graphic adventure, which means it’s a game where the story is the major focus. Alex Chen, a young Asian-American who grew up in a foster household and had a difficult upbringing, is introduced to her brother Gabe eight years later, and he pushes her to come home. Alex chooses to use his psychic empathy talent, which allows him to read minds and control powerful emotions in others, which she perceives as colorful auras, to uncover the truth behind Gabe’s death in a mystery accident. She can literally see how others are feeling around her, but at the risk of becoming “infected” by their feelings. Along the journey, Alex meets a number of residents of Haven Springs, Colorado, including two possible love interests, Ryan and Steph (he who appeared in Life Is Strange: Before the Storm). Alex must figure out how his brother died and make a decision about his love life.
