Zak Garriss, the writer of Life is Strange Before the Storm said in an interview with IBTimes UK that Dontnod Entertainment, the creator of Life Is Strange had no collaboration with Deck Nine.

From the bare bones of the game, there was no collaboration done between Dontnod Entertainment and Deck Nine. What happened was, Deck Nine worked with the same group that Dontnod worked with in Square Enix on the Life is Strange project.

“So from the beginning, Dontnod hasn’t collaborated with us, we haven’t collaborated with them,” Garriss said. “From concept to full production it’s been the team at Deck Nine working with the core team at Square that worked on the first game”.

Square actually challenged Deck Nine to show them what Life Is Strange is all about and what it can potentially be, then create a story in that world.

The timeframe of Before the Storm was set way before the events of Life Is Strange since it is two different studios who made each one.” We deliberately set it far enough back that this isn’t the story of Rachel Amber’s disappearance. This isn’t that story. This isn’t the story of what happens right before Max comes back to town”.

If you haven’t played Life is Strange yet, it won’t affect your gameplay for Before the Storm since it has a completely different story.

“This is a separate story about Chloe meeting Rachel, so even the most diehard fans of the first game, they’re not going to know how Before the Storm is gonna end. You’re gonna be confronted with certain moral choices that will be challenging and difficult. There are consequences that are hard to foresee”.

There are three episodes for Life is Strange Before the Storm. The first one launches on August 31 available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
