Trivia Edit

Episode Three Edit

  • The achievement "The Dharma Bums" is the title of a 1958 novel by Beat Generation author/poet Jack Kerouac. Its symbol is a hobo sign meaning "safe camp."[3][4]
  • The achievement "Train of Thought" is represented by a hobo sign meaning "Hop on train here" or "good place to catch a train."
  • The achievement "Zero Hugs Given" is represented by a hobo sign meaning "danger."[5][6]
    • In the original game, when Max goes back in time to 2008, she wears a blue T-shirt with the phrase "No Fucks Given" disguised in jumbled letters. This achievement may be a reference to DONTNOD staff being impressed that fans had spotted this hidden phrase.[7]
  • The achievement "One of Us" may be a reference to the cult film Lost Boys. In this film, the head vampire, David, played by Kiefer Sutherland, says, "Drink some of this, Michael. Be one of us."[8] The title of the achievement for getting every collectible in this episode is Lost Boys Chronicles.
  • The achievement "American Graffiti" may be a reference to the 1973 coming-of-age film of the same name.

Episode Four Edit

  • The achievement "A New Perspective" is represented by the triple spiral, a Celtic symbol of faith. Although its meaning is debated, it is widely accepted in the modern day as a symbol of Celtism or Celtic Neopaganism. [9]
  • The achievement "All Sinners" alludes to the same Bible verse referenced by the achievement obtained by completing Episode 4. It is represented by the Buddhist endless knot, which represents the Buddha's endless compassion and wisdom as well as karmic destiny. [10]
  • The achievement "Romans 3:23", which the player receives for finishing Episode 4, is a reference to a Bible passage: "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God".[11]
  • The achievement "Chiaroschuro", which is received for starting any optional drawing in Episode 4, is an compositional term for the use of contrast between light and dark. This may be an allusion to a scene in Season 1, where photography teacher, Mark Jefferson, taught a lesson on the term in "Out of Time."

Episode Five Edit

  • The achievement "The Age of Reason" may be a reference to the Catholic canon law of the same name, which is the age at which children are considered to possess moral responsibility and the ability to use reason.
    • Another reference could be the Age of Reason as a movement. According to Wikipedia: "The Age of Reason or Age of Enlightenment was an intellectual and philosophical movement that dominated the world of ideas in Europe during the 18th century." A controversial book by the same name - challenging the views of institutionalized religion - was released in three parts in the 18th century by political activist Thomas Paine.
  • The achievement "She Wolf" is represented by a drawing of the famous Capitoline Wolf sculpture. It depicts a she-wolf suckling Romulus and Remus, the twin founders of Rome.
  • The achievement "Dead Man's Bones" is represented by the Native American symbols for life and death. [12]
  • The achievement "Boundaries" is represented by a hobo sign meaning "jail."
  • The achievement "Specks of Dust" is represented by the symbol of the Horned God[13], who represents the masculine aspects of Wiccan ditheism and is often associated with wilderness, nature, and the life cycle.[14]
    • This symbol also represents three life stages: master, father, and sage ― a journey from boyhood to fatherhood/adulthood before a passing on of wisdom to someone younger or less experienced.[15] This appears to reflect the overarching theme of Life is Strange 2 where Sean is now a father figure to Daniel, helping to shape his younger brother's actions and leading by example.
  • The achievement "Homeward Bound" may be a reference to the Simon & Garfunkel song of the same name, in which the narrator expresses a strong desire to return home while he sits in the railway station.[16]
