Square Enix was only publisher to approve Life is Strange’s female lead

Japanese publisher Square Enix is the only company that would agree to publish Dontnod Entertainment’s latest title with its female lead character unchanged.

The French studio has released a new developer diary about its episodic new title, which sees players follow the story of a girl with the ability to bend time,GameSpotreports. During the video, creative director Jean-Maxime Moris discussed the conditions some publishers demanded when Dontnod approached them.

"Square is basically the only publisher who didn’t want to change a single thing about the game," she said. "We had other publishers telling us to make it a male lead character, and Square didn’t even question that once."
