Captain Spirit is more than a demo; doesn’t have Achievements, Trophies

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit will not have Achievements or Trophies, Dontnod’s Raoul Barbet confirmed with Stevivor at E3 2018.

“No,” Barbet told Stevivor when asked.

The title — available free on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 next week — was called a demo in a behind closed doors event prior to our interview, but Barbet stressed that the game is much more than that.

“I wouldn’t say that [it is a demo],” he said. “It’s formed around our relative experience. It’s a standalone experience.

“It means that if you don’t know Life is Strange, you can play it and discover the type of game we’re creating — and, I hope, the DNA of Life is Strange. Of course, if you know Life is Strange you can find a lot of details in Captain Spirit.

“It’s really a perfect introduction to Life is Strange 2.”

We’re days out from the release of The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit; the title heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 — for free — from 26 June here in Australia.
