DONTNOD Entertainment are the developers of Life Is Strange. They are an independent French video game development studio based in Paris. The company was founded by former Criterion Games head, Oskar Guilbert in 2008.[1]

History Edit

Their first game and AAA release was the third-person action brawler titled Remember Me. The game was published by Capcom in June 2013, and is an action-adventure sci-fi game based around a member of a resistance group looking to recover her lost memories.

Life Is Strange is their second game, published by Square Enix. An episodic game, Life Is Strange had the first episode released in January 2015 and all five episodes were released by October 2015.

Their third game, Vampyr, is currently in development and announced for 2017. Vampyr is a role-playing game set in the early 20th century, about a doctor who has been bitten by a patient thought to have the Spanish flu.

Michel Koch said in an interview in 2016 that they have two teams at Dontnod, one working on Vampyr and one working on an exciting unannounced game, which later turned out to be Life Is Strange 2.[2]
