The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is a playable teaser launched to advertise Life Is Strange 2, the primary episode of which adopted on three months after this shock p.t. dropped throughout E3 2018. Not to be confused with Silent Hills P.T. (it is like… the precise reverse of that), Captain Spirit is free to play, takes two to 3 hours to finish, and manages to completely encapsulate the Life Is Strange expertise with out giving something away about the primary (learn: paid-for) games within the sequence. It additionally options presumably my favorite LIS protagonist in lovable wannabe superhero Chris, which is kind of a excessive bar to clear, contemplating how a lot time I spend banging on about what nice characters Chloe and Sean are.
Captain Spirit is my go-to title when a good friend who would not play video games asks me for a advice: it is quick, it is free, it packs a large narrative punch however would not have excessive stakes or difficult controls, and for those who prefer it there’s the entire Life Is Strange franchise so that you can transfer onto subsequent. Of course, because you’re right here studying this on a web site devoted to PC gaming, I’m guessing you are most likely not on the lookout for this type of entry-level advice; however perhaps it is one so that you can go on to a non-gaming good friend sometime.
Or perhaps you performed the primary games however ignored Captain Spirit. It’s simply carried out, particularly now that it is higher generally known as an elective bonus chapter slotted in awkwardly one-and-a-half episodes by Life Is Strange 2, than because the standalone game it nonetheless technically is. But I like to recommend taking part in these games in launch order, with Captain Spirit — which remains to be accessible as a separate obtain for those who favor — appearing as LIS2’s prologue. Despite the conclusion being open-ended for apparent causes, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit actually does get up as an amazing game in itself (some have argued, even higher than Life Is Strange 2 did) — and it deserves to be loved by itself appreciable deserves.
