Although it got off to an uneven start, Life is Strange ($21) became widely loved and acclaimed by the time its fifth and final episode released on consoles and PC last fall—and now it’s all available on Mac. Dontnod’s game is a graphic adventure about a teenage girl who discovers she has the power to turn back time, and uses it to try and fix dramatic events.
Expectedly, these aren’t consequence-free tweaks, as her decisions always tend to have lasting effects… and things get super intense by the end of the series. Like Telltale’s adventure games, your choices accumulate and shape the story ahead, but Life is Strange has been especially praised for its characters and atypical plot points for games, including bullying and suicide.
Life is Strange is a Mac App Store exclusive, with the first episode sold for $5 and the rest available bundled for $16 (thus the $21 total price), or for $5 apiece.
