There were two key moments in my play through of Life is Strange. The first came early on in the game when I was exploring the grounds of Blackwell Academy, the school within which a lot of the game is set, and I realised that I – in the form of central character Max – was nervous about approaching certain characters. To put it simply ‘the popular kids’. I knew that Max wouldn’t do that so why should I? And besides, what if they were mean to me?
