The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is far from all fun and games

Dad switched from beer to whiskey immediately after breakfast. Things aren't going great. It's never explicitly stated, but there seems to be a dead mother in the mix. Dad's spirits aren't high, they're in the tumbler. Drain and flood, again and again.

Captain Spirit (or "Chris" when he's not donning superhero garb) finds escapism somewhere more appropriate for a nine-year-old. In a fantasy world where a water heater becomes the fearsome monster Water Eater, Captain Spirit controls his own destiny. We all cope in our own ways.

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is the new bite-size narrative piece from Dontnod Entertainment. It's a two-hour game that looks to be mostly self-contained. It serves a larger purpose, though. Captain Spirit will be the first introduction to Life is Strange 2, which will be formally revealed in the coming months.
