Now Playing: The Awesome Adventures Of Captain Spirit Gameplay - First 20 Minutes

Following its surprise reveal during E3 2018, the Life Is Strange spin-off The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit has officially launched. The game is now available to download on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and unlike previous entries in the series, it's completely free to download for all platforms.

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is a shorter, self-contained episode that stars Chris, a young boy who lives alone with his father. Chris loves comics and has a vivid imagination; during the story, he pretends to be a superhero named Captain Spirit and battle "monsters" such as a broken water heater.

Despite not directly tying into the previous Life Is Strange episodes, developer Dontnod says the game "links" to stories from the upcoming Life Is Strange 2 and contains "many secrets" and Easter eggs for fans to uncover. Choices you make in The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit will also carry over into Life Is Strange 2.

Early reception for The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit has been positive. GameSpot called it a "beautiful game" and awarded it an 8/10 in our The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit review. Critic James O'Connor wrote:

"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."
