About

Tell Me Why is the latest narrative adventure game from DONTNOD Entertainment, the studio behind the beloved franchise, Life is Strange. In this intimate mystery, reunited twins Tyler and Alyson Ronan use their supernatural bond to unravel the mysteries of their loving but troubled childhood. Set in beautiful small-town Alaska, Tell Me Why features true-to-life characters, mature themes and gripping choices.
As you conjure up memories of the past, your choices will affect the twins’ relationship, determine the strength of their bond, and shape the course of their lives.
Tell Me Why unfolds across three chapters, all of which will release in the summer of 2020 with Xbox Game Pass and will also be available for purchase on Xbox One, Windows 10 and Steam.

    I'd like to trade my Epic Games account with several games (including GTA 5) for a Tell Me Why global steam key. Is that even possible?

    Tell Me Why reviews and comments

    If you like narrative adventures then you'll enjoy this. Much like Life is Strange, this let's you experience a story with some intrigue but this has the added weight of a sibling bond at the heart of it.
    Some parts are frustrating/slow to replay if you save/exit at a bad time but its decent enough overall.
    No surprises from the gameplay so it lives or dies by its story. I enjoyed it. Even more so, I liked the week-apart release schedule!
