All in all, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is a great time. The lack of multiple save slots and that dumb cell phone PIN number puzzle might bog down the experience a little bit, but overall it’s a fun adventure with an emotional narrative and interesting characters and relationships. And it’s a free game that you don’t have to have played the previous Life is Strange games to appreciate, so there’s no excuse to not check it out.
Life is Strange gained a huge cult following, and whether you're a veteran or a newcomer, Captain Spirit captures a lot of the original game's appeal. Regardless of how you classify The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit--whether it's a standalone adventure, a demo, or a prologue--it's a beautiful game, and one that leaves you all the more excited about Life is Strange 2.
The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit thoughtfully examines a troubled childhood through the eyes of the 10-year-old living it. This non-linear episode encourages you to explore, refraining from beating you over the head with its difficult subject matter. It’s building into something, and it’s hard to determine exactly what that is with DONTNOD being so coy about its plans for the sequel.
