Acclaimed episodic video game Life is Strange is to be turned into a digital live action series by Legendary Digital Studios and Square Enix.

The project will be developed by Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons of dj2 Entertainment who produced the upcoming film Sonic the Hedgehog for Sony Pictures.

Meetings with potential writers for the series adaptation are currently being held.

"Life is Strange is one of those rare properties that combines incredibly developed characters and storylines with deeply engaging gameplay," said Greg Siegel, senior vice president of Development and Production for Legendary Digital Studios. "It lends itself perfectly to live-action imaginings. We couldn't be more excited to partner with Square Enix, DONTDOD Entertainment and dj2 to bring the world of Arcadia Bay to life in an exciting new way."

Life is Strange tells the story of high-school senior Max Caulfield, a photography enthusiast who discovers she has the ability to rewind time.

The game won BAFTA for Best Story, and appeared in more than 75 Game of the Year listings.
