Square Enix has fired the first shot with new GamesCom projects this week, with the debut of a new game from Remember Me developer Dontnod titled Life Is Strange.

Due for release on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC, the game is an "episodic, digitally delivered, narrative driven adventure game" surrounding some rather interesting characters.

Taking place in Arcadia Bay, Oregon, the game focuses on senior student Max Caufield, who makes his return after a five-year absence. He meets up with his former friend Chloe and launches an investigation into the disappearance of a fellow student, Rachel Amber.

The gameplay will feature a rewind technique, which will help Max erase any possible mistakes he makes along the way, though he'll still need to deal with consequences through the player's actions.

More details on Life Is Strange are expected later in the week, but the first screenshots indicate that there's an interesting, distinctive look to the game's design.
