Return to your childhood with a touching and heart-warming, one-of-a-kind narrative experience, from the directors and development team behind the BAFTA award winning game Life Is Strange™. Chris is an ordinary 10-year old boy who wants to be a superhero. He loves his toys and has a big imagination that takes him on all sorts of adventures, but today is not one of his usual adventures, today something truly extraordinary will happen to him. Dontnod Entertainment are back with an all-new original and endearing story that will let you experience a slice of young Chris’ life, as he turns an ordinary Saturday into an epic superhero adventure.

The episode is a self-contained narrative experience allowing players to discover plenty of hidden secrets with each play-through. The awesome adventures of captain spirit will feature links to the brand-new story of Life Is Strange 2.
“We’re very excited to present The awesome adventures of captain spirit. We have created a self-contained narrative experience that’s brimming with content – the deeper you dig, the more you will discover. We’re happy to announce that we will be giving away this content completely free of charge.” – said Jon Brooke, VP of Brand and European Marketing at Square Enix.
