At the X019 fan event in London today, Microsoft rolled a trailer for a new game from Dontnod Entertainment that looks a whole lot like Life Is Strange. But it's not: It's a new game that appears to be in the same vein, called Tell Me Why. You can watch the reveal video above.

The YouTube description has a bit more detail: "In this intimate thriller, twins Tyler and Alyson use their special bond to unravel mysteries of their loving but troubled childhood. Set in beautiful small-town Alaska, Tell Me Why features true-to-life characters, mature themes and gripping choices."

The trailer ends by saying "all chapters coming Summer 2020," so it seems Tell Me Why is an episodic adventure just like Life Is Strange. Unlike Life Is Strange, though, it's not going to take more than a few months for the whole series to wrap up.

Wes plays a little bit of everything, but he'll always jump at the chance to cover emulation and Japanese games. When he's not obsessively optimizing and re-optimizing a tangle of conveyor belts in Satisfactory (it's really becoming a problem), he's probably playing a 20-year-old RPG or some opaque ASCII roguelike. With a focus on writing and editing features, he seeks out personal stories and in-depth histories from the corners of PC gaming and its niche communities. 50% pizza by volume (deep dish, to be specific).
