So far, DONTNOD Entertainment has been pretty tight-lipped about what we can expect from the story in Life Is Strange 2. Aside from a very short teaser trailer showing off the game’s title, we don’t know much else at all. However, the company also released The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit for free, and as a lead-in to the next chapter in Life Is Strange, there are quite a few clues we can pick up from the two-hour journey.
Be warned that this article contains spoilers for The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit and Life Is Strange.
The Reynolds Boy Is the Protagonist
Let’s start with the big one. At the end of Captain Spirit, Chris falls off the treehouse, but right before he hits the ground, he levitates. After that, we see him share a look with one of the boys from the Reynolds household. Now, it’s entirely possible that Chris could have discovered his own superpowers right at that moment in time. However, it’s also worth noting that the Reynolds boy looked completely serene when he witnessed the whole situation. If he was that unfazed by the ordeal, it stands to reason that the boy was the one who saved Chris.
We also know that Chris isn’t going to be the main protagonist in Life Is Strange 2. While he is going to be a key character in the story, players will take control of someone else instead. If the Reynolds boy is the one with the superpower, then him being the main protagonist seems like the most plausible outcome.
