Gamescom Q&A
In construction.

Toby Palm: ... "Deck Nine has five writers, and Zak is the lead-writer, so he will most likely be mostly responsible for the times when you guys break down in tears. And all the dank memes... Grill Dad, was that you? Grill Dad?"


"So Alex is the designer on the Life is Strange brand over all. He worked on Life is Strange: Season 1 as a designer at Square Enix. [to Alex] So you worked with Dontnod, and right now you're working with the Deck Nine guys
