The studio believes giving both games the space they need will enhance the overall experience. Lost Records: Bloom & Rage will feature a story focusing on four female friends, exploring their high school years in the '90s and their lives in the present day, promising elements of queer romance and supernatural themes akin to Life is Strange.

The series' ability to tackle complex themes and emotional narratives has garnered a dedicated fanbase. The announcement of Life is Strange: Double Exposure marks a significant return to its roots with original protagonist Max Caulfield, encouraging anticipation among fans who enjoyed the first game's impactful story arcs.
