Life is Strange: True Colors

 

Sad reproduction

Learning from the masters is an important and necessary skill that allows you to look, wind on your mustache and do something of your own – good. It would seem that the developers from Deck Nine did just that, first creating the backstory of Life is Strange, and now speaking in full force with a full-fledged third part. Did they succeed? Yes… if the goal was to create a remake of the first game.

Which is good, Life is Strange: True Colors is the most beautiful part of the series. New graphics have turned Alex Chen into a cute and beautifully animated protagonist who plays her face and winks provocatively while all the lights in the area are beautifully reflected in her glasses. Other characters, however, are not so expressive and lose against her background, but it is not shameful to yield to the protagonist. And they live in a small town surrounded by mountains, which automatically creates beautiful views from balconies and piers. Flowers are all around, the river is splashing, everything is beautiful and bright, despite the fact that sinister secrets are always hidden behind the beauties and tranquility of small towns. And at this point, you have to move from the unambiguously good to the much more controversial: history.

Once again, we have a heroine who arrives in an unusual place for herself, where she is waiting for acquaintance with the inhabitants (including a girl looming at her side, hinting in every possible way at the joys of pure lesbian love), misfortune, investigation, sinister secrets and difficult decisions. Somewhere it has been…

And yes, another superpower is also in place. Alex can feel strong emotions, which looks impressive, but in reality turns into a banal mind reading. The heroine can hear what the person is thinking and take advantage of it. But if the feeling is very strong, it is transmitted to Alex herself (in fact, that’s why she didn’t stay anywhere for a long time). Otherwise, Alex simply “sees the world through the eyes of people”, looks for objects that give an emotional response, and then either helps a person with a kind word or takes his emotion for himself. It sounds like using an ability should result in serious consequences for both the environment and the heroes – a blessing, this has been the case in past games. Here, although these consequences are present, they are so insignificant that it is even ridiculous.

As it should be in the series, a girl and a guy claim the hand and heart of the heroine. The difference is how clumsily they are brought on stage this time: the only thing missing is the “love interest” label on their foreheads. Moreover, the game obsessively pushes the choice of a girl, which the previous parts still did not allow themselves (trailers are trailers, and LiS herself managed by much more elegant methods). At the same time, there is practically no love itself in the game, and a modest kiss is perplexing with its puritanism after a natural and frank demonstration of past relationships. Actually, in True Colors, in general, everything is calculated one or two: there is neither the elegance of the first part, nor the long development of the second … but they brought in the heroine from the prequel, designed to connect this story with the main series! M-yes. It would be better if they added some choices in the plot that affect at least something, and the few available are so obvious that the image of a tram pops up in my head, which with a clang goes to another branch. There is zero tension from such elections, only cold calculation.

The history of the new game looks like the authors took the plot backbone of the first part as a basis, shuffled a couple of moments and added a teenager from the sequel. This conveyor work looks exactly as it should – labored and faded. For example, in the first part there was a little funny episode with a role-playing game, and True Colors simply could not copy it. And not just copy it, but stretch it over a whole chapter, giving the whole city to the players. And yes, it’s funny in places, but in general it looks like a stretched utterly remake with a large budget. And such horns and legs of the previous parts stick out from everywhere, but these are not bindings to a single world, but borrowings that rarely exceed the original.

At the same time, in small conversations and some scenes, Life is Strange: True Colors works great, since Alex Chen turned out to be a good heroine with an interesting character and strong chemistry with her brother. But at the core here is still a wildly predictable plot about the fight against an evil corporation, clearly borrowed from a cesspool of long-rotten ideas, and everything turns into a miserable final act with displays of the past inside the displays of the past (well, how can anyone not understand the already clearly pronounced things ?) and a predictable ending. And, well, the epilogue showing the consequences of the decisions made is so stretched out that in the end you can fall asleep.

Alas, before you is a performance staged by not very skillful people. While the actors are walking around the stage, and colorful fireworks fly into the air, the director constantly looks out from behind the curtains and winks. Look, what a reference, look, we have a lesbian and even a transgender here (they won’t show him, as if he really wanted to). While the creators of the series Donthnod continue to forge new paths in story and gameplay (sometimes faltering, but not giving up creative search), Deck Nine again made a dull reproduction. It is possible that they are even terribly satisfied with the work done, but the idea and meaning of the series were completely lost behind a pretty picture – because no, it was not about superpowers and the presence of a lesbian love line.
