What skills does Alex have? The “True Colors” protagonist has the ability to empathize and can perceive other people’s emotions in the form of colorful auras. With this gift, she also influences interactions and relationships in the game. Instead, she feels emotions such as grief, fear, and anger from others, and absorbs or even manipulates them.

Alex himself saw her ability as a curse all his life and has therefore always suppressed it. After her brother dies in an alleged accident, she uses her strength to understand what is really behind the accident. With this superpower, players of “Life is Strange: True Colors” are supposed to uncover the secrets of Haven Springs in order to get to the bottom of Alex’s past and at the same time to influence their future.
