Life is Strange 2 follows the story of two brothers, Sean and Daniel, who find themselves homeless after the unexpected death of their father. Not knowing where to turn, they set out to find a place where they belong. Over their long journey, they are lucky enough to spend a few days with relatives and are given money from a kind stranger to sleep in a motel for the night. But are otherwise forced to improvise for months. Camping out in forests and squatting in an abandoned shack. Being homeless means not having a safe, warm environment to call home. And that’s why we’ve partnered with Centrepoint, the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity, to increase awareness of the fantastic work they do in supporting vulnerable young people by providing practical and emotional support, accommodation and life skills. There are thousands of young people sleeping rough every night, but there are thousands more sleeping on sofas, floors, night buses or with strangers, and these are the ‘hidden homeless’. And it’s far more prevalent than people think. In fact, Centrepoint found that 73% of homeless young people in the UK sofa surf as they had nowhere else to stay, and 27% spent a night in a tent. In the UK alone, 22,000 young people will face homelessness this Christmas, and the insecurity of not having a permanent home can have devastating effects. Life is Strange fans are extremely passionate about the characters and stories that these games tell, and we hope that by partnering with Centrepoint it will help make players more aware of the situations young people, just like them, experience on a daily basis. As part of this partnership, we will be running a charity livestream, which you can watch and hopefully donate. We look forward to having you aboard for this great cause.
