If you know of any, send them my way lol. I know of Oxenfree already.
And if you have any generally cool indie games, those suggestions are welcomed too.

I have PC and sometimes play on PS4.
Eh.

Their earlier game, Remember Me. The memory playback mechanic is similar to the time playback in Life Is Strange. You rewind time and influence people's memories. Most of the game is a simplistic fighting game with shallow, automated platforming. The art direction is great, though. Their next game, Vampyr, is also gonna focus on screwing with people.

Same recommendations. Definitely play all Telltale games. Their The Walking Dead Game is my favorite; season 1 is the best for me because of Lee. Season 2 is great too, kinda having a love and hate relationship with season 3, but it's decent. @

Try Late Shift, An FMV game about crime, your choices will affect the conclusion of the story and all that good stuff.

Well if you're looking for games that have far-branching narratives but in the end boil down to a simple, stupid and arbitrary choice between two or three options, there's always Mass Effect.

Telltale games like walking dead,tales of borderlands,jurassic park etc...

And Heavy Rain def,Heavy you can have a lot of different outcomes, bad endings like 3 and good endings 3 i think aswell.

If you don't mind an old outdated, yet very cool, game with the same style that also deals with time traveling then:

Shadow of Memories

Any telltale game.
Heavy rain
If you want some serious decision impacting game, try Mass Effect. 3 games of pure enjoyment. It provides hundreds of hours of replay value

I've not actually played the 3rd season. I did like season 1 & 2 but I have to say I kind of got a bit bored of season 2 at the end, so I haven't bothered with season 3.

Beyond Two Souls, maybe? When I was looking for a game like LiS , I picked up BTS, and I thought they were quite similar.

I'd also suggest trying Until Dawn and Fahrenheit. Fahrenheit is a bit old but still a great game. Also, you can find a few more similar games here https://www.gameslike.com/games-like-life-is-strange/.

Besides, I'm waiting for Detroit: Become Human in 2018. It should be epic.

I feel like the answers have been given, but I'll chip in if you dont mind :)

Life is strange is very similar to all the tell tale games, but it stands apart cos of some of its core gaming experiences like turning back time. If you are looking for games that have story features like Life is Strange then you can't go wrong with any of the tell tale games. I've gone through pretty much all of them apart from the batman series.

I'm now getting into trying some of the more 'indie' and smaller but interesting titles. This list has some of them in it.

It's already been mentioned, but i'd pitch in with Night in the Woods too, amazing indie-game with some of the same themes as LiS and Oxenfree.

Telltale games has already been mentioned multiple times, and I believe that because of their episodic nature and "choices have consequences", but story wise they differ. I'd still recommend them, even though I've only played The Wolf Among Us, and watched LPs of the Walking Dead seasons. In case of TWD i feel like season 1 was the best, and its been going weirdly downhill since. They've announced that season 4 is gonna be the last, and I'm kinda excited to see how they're gonna finish this story.

LiS also have a prequel made by Deck Nine called Before the Storm, which has 2 out of 3 or 4 episodes out at this time, you probably know about it, but I just wanna mention it in case you have missed it.


Other indie games that are not really like LiS, that I can recommend would be
Journey, you might've heard about it. It's for PS3 and PS4, and it's probably one of my favourite games. It takes a couple hours to finish, but I personally feel like it got replay value. It's the kind of game I wip out once in a while when I got a couple hours to kill and just wanna have a good time. You get to play with a stranger who may or may not have played the game before, and you just get to go on this journey together. Maybe your partner knows where all the secrets are and wants to show you, or maybe you're two new players who get to explore this world together for the first time. Idk how to explain it, but it always leaves me with such a good feeling once I've played through Journey with 1 or more amazing partners.
I haven't played ABZÛ yet, but it's made by a guy who also worked on Journey, and the soundtrack is made by the same composer who made the awesome OST for Journey, and it looks amazing imo.
I feel like I gotta recommend Playdead's Limbo and Inside, just because of the slim sliver of national pride I got in me. They're dark sidescroller platform games with each their own little story. Check them out if you want to
Unravel is also a really beautiful sidescroll platform game where you play as a little yarn being travelling through the Swedish nature collecting memories. It got this really specific atmosphere of a Swedish countryside home that I haven't experienced since I was a child and watched Pettson och Findus. I haven't finished Unravel myself, so I actually don't know how much it got in terms of story, but I do wanna recommend it solely based on it's aesthetic and game mechanics.
Undertale. Probably heard of it, still wanna recommend it.

Well this list has some nice relative games. Good list, got plenty of tv shows and games from it, thanks very much. The others I've researched that seem to be up there as well: To The Moon, Oxenfree and Murdered Soul Suspect

Games of Thrones and Batman is much better than Borderlands in my opinion

Tales from Borderlands has no good story, it more of comedy and not serious. I would even say that Guardians of the Galaxy is better than this

Hmmm, try Firewatch, the talent that once led the development at Tell Tale Games left that studio and formed a new one called Campo Santo.

Dreamfall Chapters, it comes closest to life is strange. Play it, love it. It's the last installment of the longest journey trilogy, but still worth a play. This is by far the best game where choice does have influence on future events. Not to mention this trilogy has one of the best story lines in video game history. A very overlooked franchise indeed. Somehow it takes place in a cyberpunk universe (Stark) and a fantasy universe (Arcadia) you have "Shifters" people who can leap through these two worlds and you have dreamers, people whom can alter reality by entering Arcadia through dreams.













All this effort to find out this topic is from last fuckin year, amazing.
