Life is Strange is a game of consequences. It presents the player with choices which change the storyline, sometimes in subtle ways, and sometimes in ways that can kill off major characters.
The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is also a game of consequences. The story takes place during a single morning, so the consequences are rarely game-changers.
Sunday morning, I stumbled upon the one choice that lead, uncontrollably, to the end of the game. I had played less than an hour. I hadn’t completed anything on Captain Spirit’s “Awesome Things to Do” list.
So, I started over. I designed Captain Spirit’s costume differently. I tried out different choices. I avoided making that one game-ending choice. Unfortunately, I knew how the game would end.
Phillip joined me in playing the game last night. We discovered that I had missed out on a lot of adventures Sunday morning.
Now, this evening, I’ve completed all but one of Captain Spirit’s “Awesome Things to Do”. (I knew from the start that this was going to be a short game.)
I have no clue how to accomplish that last Awesome Thing. I feel like I’ve tried everything. Now I have a choice: Do I go to the end, one thing short, or do I keep wandering around hoping something will occur to me, or do I find the answer on the internet?
