Life is Strange Edit
"But what I did put in Life is Strange that made me feel missed is the very first thing that Jefferson says in the game which is 'I could put any of you in a dark corner and frame you' and we had a lot of talk about that, because they were like 'are you sure that's...?' and I'm like 'I think we're gonna get away with this if we just put it in the background, cause..' and later on people were like 'oh.. eerggh he tells you from the begi...' Spoiler art!"
Personal Life Edit
Representation and talking about diversity in different kind of ways is very important to Christian Divine in his work on the Life is Strange franchise.
"And you know, in terms of diversity, you know, I'm disabled, so I look at, it's very important to me that we have representation. And I can count on my one hand really how many disabled or handicapped characters in the media there are and how many disabled writers or entertainers. There's very few. And so one of the things about writing for Chloe's scene [stay?] in the wheelchair - I do not know what it's like to be in a wheelchair. I would never assume that I can tell somebody what it's like, but I have friends in wheelchairs, and I understand the obisticles and the challenges and I know how dynamic they are. And so it's - it's a matter of putting yourself -- as a disabled person, you're often on the fringe of society, so that's what you bring as a writer, if you can, to the characters."
