Special Message from Life Is Strange Team

A huge Thank You!


If you’re reading this, you’ve likely already heard or watched the news… over 3 million of you bought our game Life Is Strange! It’s an incredible achievement and one we could not have reached without you, our fantastic community! You helped spread positive words about our game and have continually kept the world interested in what happens next.
We also revealed a key piece of information that many of you have been waiting some time for now – we can indeed confirm that the original Life is Strange team at DONTNOD are working on a brand new Life is Strange game. We can’t wait to tell you all about it when the time is right, but for now we are hard at work ensuring it is the very best game we can create. We’re really thankful for your patience thus far and ask for a bit more time. The new game will not be at E3 in June this year but we will be watching the show alongside you all and wish everyone good luck!

Here is a little message from the core team of Life Is Strange at DONTNOD:

E3 2016 – We’re going to tell you about our adventure!

Chronicles of our trip to Los Angeles for E3 2016, as told by the narrative director of Vampyr, Stéphane Beauverger!

We couldn’t resist the temptation to let Stéphane’s pen tell you about the amazing trip that the Vampyr team undertook to E3 to present the game to the media. Enjoy!




Slightly after the fact, some news about the adventures of the Vampyr team in California.

With the trade show going on around us, only a few meters away and yet inaccessible, day after day the Vampyr delegation made presentations and gave interviews to stunned audiences and dumbfounded journalists (no, really!)

After a day spent on this delicate exercise, it seems appropriate to share a few comments and discoveries:

– It is humanly impossible to talk louder than a pack of hysterical fans in front of a neighboring stand that is announcing an event that we will never know anything about (even though we had a mike and they didn’t)

– Entering the show with an “exhibitor” badge before the doors opened and jostling past simple visitors is rare source of satisfaction – and unfortunately the only one ahead of the marathon that awaited us 🙂


– When you buy a plane ticket without checking the month, you find yourself having to go back to France one month after the end of the show and after the rest of the team (isn’t that right, Laurent Cahour)

 – When you play a quick game of street-rules soccer at cocktail hour, it’s easy to end up with a broken toe (isn’t that right, Gregory Szucs?)




The project was very well received, the journalists had lots of questions, and several times there was even spontaneous applause.
Fans regularly and very nicely came by the stand to tell us how much they’d enjoyed playing Life Is Strange and Remember Me, and how they couldn’t wait to give Vampyr a go.

That afternoon, the site GamersPack presented Philippe and Maxime with the game’s official nomination for “Choice of the Pack – Roleplaying” for E3 2016.
Gamerspack - Nominee-E3


Anecdotes and discoveries of the day:

– Just before an interview, a journalist exchanged a smile with his cameraman and very nicely said to me: “Cool, you’re wearing sunglasses and a leather jacket so you can look like a vampire in The Masquerade... Nice touch.”  “… Umm, no, I dress like this all the time…” 8)

– About that leather jacket… Reeeeaaalllllly bad idea to visit Los Angeles under a hot sun while on foot and wearing a leather jacket… I narrowly escaped very definitely vampiric spontaneous combustion while waiting for sunset.

– Nobody walks in LA anyway; there, the car, taxi, and Uber are kings. Only problem: when we asked for an Uber for 5 and the vehicle that turned up clearly didn’t have enough room for the whole team. Result: our Game Director had a memorable road trip with his knees right up to his chin in the hastily-arranged trunk. But that’s all part of the French Touch (isn’t that right, Philippe Moreau?)

And that’s all for this evening. Here in LA, it’s 10:33 pm and we’re tired. We’ll pick things up again tomorrow (last day!)

See you soon for more news!

Good night everybody.



Well, that’s it, it’s over: E3 2016 has finished to the charming sound of a blaring megaphone politely asking everyone to get the hell out (no kidding).

It was intense, tiring, long, and exciting.


Once again – and it’s always a real pleasure – fans dropped by to declare their love and admiration of our work. And when it comes down to it we have the right to think that it’s also (especially?) because of these genuine words and smiles that we work our butts off to make the best games possible.


We brought back 5 prizes awarded by the general public, players, and that makes us feel good too.

Well done and congratulations to all of the teams, to each and every one of you who made the first public presentation of Vampyr a success.
There’s still a lot of work ahead, but we received confirmation that we’re going in the right direction.

Lots of journalists were amazed, intrigued, curious… They want to find out more, so now they’ll be following us a lot more closely.

It’s now 10 pm here; tomorrow the flight and back to France (except Laurent Cahour, who couldn’t find any other way out except to stay and work on a farm until he can afford a return ticket… Mwahaha!)
