Life is beautiful, too

Remember Me developer Dontnod has announced the game it is working on in conjunction with Square Enix, Life is Strange. The episodic, hand-drawn adventure game is coming to PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. 

It takes place in a fictional Oregon city and sounds like a bit of Veronica Mars and Gone Home. "[S]enior student Max Caulfield returns after a 5 year absence. Reunited with her former friend Chloe, the pair will attempt to uncover the uncomfortable truth behind the mysterious disappearance of fellow student Rachel Amber."

Also, Max can rewind time. Of course, you'll make decisions which affect the narrative as well. Could be cool, excited to see more (and that Dontnod didn't die after Remember Me, which had some cool things going for it).
