I wanted to have a bit of a change from my usual posts that tend to be more on the wiki updates/game research side, so I thought it would be nice to have an introductory blog where you fellow editors can tell me your stories of how you discovered Life is Strange (like which game was the entry point into the fandom)... which game is preferred and why... and how the games resonate with you emotionally. :)
I'm not very good at summarising my love for LiS, but I'll have a go! I'll keep this summary about my experience with the first game until I can figure out how to word my experience with the other games in the franchise.
My own discovery of Life is Strange (Season 1) was when I needed a break from - coincidentally - a photography course I was do…Read more >
Hi folks. Some of you have raised concerns about the coincidental editing that sometimes occurs on a page you've been working on at the same time. I know how frustrating it is to spend hours writing and researching content "off-wiki" only to find that someone has changed page content while you've been busy plugging your own work into the page... So you check what's been changed, only to find this added content has pretty much duplicated what you had spent precious time on!
To address this issue, Ladosha has kindly come up with an "Editing in Progress" warning template. There are two types we can use:
- The large version is to use at the top of any page you wish to work on at that particular time across multiple sections. Good to use when you are…

Just wanted to leave a quick blog to address a spate of Season 1 page edits my mail box is filling up with lately. I think this is more changes to Season 1 pages than I have seen for a while! Nothing wrong with editing older pages, of course, but here is where I want to address some points that are really important to the wiki with regards to Season 1 content:
- Please be mindful that anything in Season 1 is THE founding lore. This must be preserved at all costs. At least two of us here got burnt out from a seemingly constant battle a couple of years back to prevent Season 1 pages being overwritten by BtS lore that was being added to these pages. Some inconsistencies between the two games resulted in the decision to split the pages for…
I'm currently compiling a list of bugs and glitches in Episode 3 with some video examples and screenshots to pass on to Dontnod's QA team like I've done with the other two episodes.
As with Episode 2, I've had a fair number of strange things happen in this episode. Has anyone else experienced something odd?
Here's just a sample of some of the things I've been compiling (I've left out the specific examples as this would be too long to read):
- Clipping Issues - Characters walking through objects that should be obstacles.
- Texture Issues - Textures jumping to a different location in cutscenes, textures being missing in some cutscenes then correcting themselves upon restarting the checkpoint, or things being where they shouldn't be.
- Audio Issues -
- Lines that…
Hi, I'm really hoping all of you Life is Strange fans can help me.
This is the deal... I have the first two episodes of Life is Strange 2 but, like everything related to LiS franchise, since the original game that is, feels boring, empty and lackluster almost soulless. Is the third chapter more of the same or like I've heardm they are resorting to sex scenes and violence to keep sales up? Or will I be surprised and have a semblance or a glimpse of the original game brilliancy and uniqueness. I'm still unsure if I should get chapter three.
Please give your honest opinion about the episode, (no spoilers of course). And please no haters or fan/girls/boys, try to be unbiased as you can about your opinion. I thank you all in advance for any hones…Read more >

Since I was recently told that there's still aftercare in place for the first game by way of a support team managed by Square Enix, this is an opportunity (and probably a last chance) to get any remaining bugs/glitches ironed out. We can submit any bugs and glitches in the original game via this link.
I'm currently in the process of organising a list of bugs/glitches to submit, but if you are reading this and would like anything you have encountered to be submitted on your behalf, please mention what you experienced in a comment below along with your operating system and specifications (if playing on PC), or what console your experienced it on.
Many thanks! :)Read more >
Life is Strange 2 - Achievement analysis. Just something I was having a little fun with. :)
Disclaimer: While I have not read The Dharma Bums by Jack Kerouac, I have spent some time reading through plot summaries on various scholastic websites - as well as those by general readers - to find the common themes and consistencies they share in order to assist my analysis and speculations.
UPDATED 28/03/19: Added Lost Boys video link and clarification that I'd missed out.
All achievements are featured in the order of their planned appearance in the game.
Achievement name: Homeward Bound.
Possible reference to:
- The main character of The Dharma Bums ascends a mountain ("") and becomes enlightened before feeling ready to head back home.

Hi folks and fellow editors. :)
For a long while now, I've been keeping a record of useful quotes I've gathered from various interviews and articles that have historically helped me to answer some of the most common questions repeatedly asked in the fandom; a handful of these being: Amberprice (canon?), Warren Graham (creepy stalker?), Rachel Amber (manipulative?), Chloe Price (toxic friend?), and even fans questioning the body in the junkyard being Rachel, because we don't see her face.
From personal experience, it's been quicker to resolve fan questions with a quote from the mouths of the devs and writers themselves. :)
So here's my list of go-to quotes, plus some recent content from interviews conducted during the development of Season 2 that I …Read more >
Hello contributors and readers,
Due to inactivity and the potential security risks posed by old accounts, the wiki staff will initiate the removal of rights from users User:Woosk, User:Josey-chan, User:Charlie1121 and User:The Walking North.
This is an unanimous decision by the current active staff that is (will be) confirmed by us leaving a comment with our respective accounts under this blog post.
Update: The removal was completed on January 9, 2018.
As always, thanks to our contributors, without them the wiki wouldn't be as comprehensive.Read more >
Awesome! Your first incentive should be to add your interesting observation to a related article. If you find an interesting detail about one of the characters — for example their favorite color, or which character from another piece of fiction they might be based on —, add it to their article's "Trivia" section. Don't forget to mention the episode, location and/or circumstances your observation can be made in.
On our Wiki, we feature several "special content" articles for every game — "Easter Eggs", "Easily Missed Details" and "References" — to differentiate between different kind of 'more special' interesting observations and findings one may make.
Perhaps, as an editor, you might make an interesting observation in one of t…

Without further ado, I shall now release my personal thoughts into the world...
Has the story of Max and Chloe been told and there's nothing left to say?
I don't think so for a few reasons:
- There are several lose threads
- I want to know how they settle in as a couple (at least I wish they'll do so) wherever they are going.
- Many fans have been emotionally heavily invested in the game, often to a point where they fell in love with both girls. Some were so deep into it they were wrecked for days after they finished the games. I'm definitely one of them.
- You can and perhaps even should leave the end open to the audience's imagination in a 2 hr movie, but not in two highly immersive games that together take >30 hours to explore and you don't just watch, but are the main protagonists.
- I also think that DontnoD's opinion that the stor…
So we all know the infamous ending that you can get, which is where Rachel can meet Sera. Some people have figured out a couple ways on how to do it and have even made guides on doing it, such as saying the correct words to Sera or just simply giving Rachel's bracelet to Sera if you have it with you. Fortunately someone (I do not know who, but whoever it was, thank you very much for posting this) posted a screenshot of the in-game code for the scene where Chloe and Sera talk, and after looking through it, as well as the ending slide code, I have finally compiled a list as well as an explanation on how to actually convince Sera to meet Rachel.
Similar to the intimacy level with Rachel for episodes 1 and 2, there is a "convince" level that yo…Read more >

The first episode of Life is Strange: Before the Storm has been out for a while now and many if not all of the community has had a chance to play. I thought it would be a great time to test your knowledge! Which of the details do you remember? Take the quiz and see how you do!
To easy huh? Let me know how you did in the comments and maybe the next one will be a bit trickier. Did you notice any Easter Eggs in your own gameplay? For example, did you notice that the number on the train at the beginning was 1337 which is sometimes used by gamers to represent LEET (elite)? While there were many memorable moments in the game, some of our users even noticed things that didn't quite line up with the original game and posted them as well.

Max describes the academy as a school for seniors on the very first page of her journal:
"I GOT ACCEPTED INTO BLACKWELL ACADEMY. If words could dance this would be a rave. Even though I’ve never been to one. But who cares because I GOT INTO BLACKWELL ACADEMY, a unique and famous private school for seniors!"
However, we know from LiS [Season 1] that Victoria Chase, Brooke Scott, and Dana Ward were all living in dorms at Blackwell Academy at least 6 months before Max began her attendance as a senior in the fall of 2013. This would suggest that the academy operates like a normal high school (not solely for seniors as Max's journal entry implies).
This journal entry was considered to be either an oversight in the writing or an ambiguity arising fro…

Which Life Is Strange character is your favorite?Read more >
I want to ask among the mods etc.
Would it not be more beneficial to remove the cause of death section from the infoboxes of key characters?
I understand that having it would be beneficial for those who have already played the game, however, for many people who read the wiki, they want to look up the info on an episode they've just played because they've missed details etc.
I feel like it's not beneficial to any new player having those portions of the infobox present.
Sorry if this is irrelevant, or you aren't in agreement; however I just wanted to put it out there and guage opinion on the matter.Read more >
HEY EVERYBODYYY! My name is Mariah Medeiros, I'm have 13 years old currently living in Macapá and since discovered the Life Is Strange Wikia, I keep looking at the site. ITS VERY COOL!
Yes, I was one of the Life Is Strange players, and HEART LOVED that game. Max, Chloe, Warre'n, Victo'ria, Kate, Jefferson, Nathan, everyone, although ficticious, were very special to me, and, I believe, for other players as well.
AND SOUNDTRACK OF THAT GAME, MY GOD?! Believe me, I have ALL the songs from the soundtrack. #SydMattersILoveU

So, we all know that the opitional ending that let's Arcadia Bay be destroyed will kill lots of the residences, including the ones we got to know and love. But aren't there some of them who would've made it out?
- Kate Marsh - Kate Marsh wouldn't have been present in Arcadia Bay because she would've been out of the town by now because her family is supposed to pick her up. We don't even know how far away the hospital is from Arcadia Bay, so even if it was delayed we won't know if the storm hit the hospital.
- David Madsen - David Madsen was in the bunker when the storm hit, so unless the bunker was cheaply made (which it wasn't) he would have most likely survived. He may have left the bunker to look for Chloe and Joyce, but this would be unknown.

[SPOILER WARNING] Hey,
just want to know what other people think of this episode.
I'm disappointed in the new episode, because none of my choices from the previous episodes mattered in the end. In the description on Steam, it says that Life is Strange would have multiple endings depending on the choices we made in other episode. I don't think that two endings which are not dependent on my choices fulfill this description. In the previous episode, I mulled a lot over my choices and asked myself if I made the right decision. It's not satisfactory that this was all for nothing.
Also, I have a lot of questions that remain open. For example, why did Max altering the time conjure a storm? Who gave her those powers? And of course, how works this pow…Read more >

If I'm alone in this, that's alright! Just wanted everybody's opinion on the matter.
I believe Chloe's date of death and causes of death shouldn't be listed in her infobox.
Primarily, it's a huge spoiler right in plain view at the begining of the article. Because of the picture, it's easy to go ahead and look at the box before you read anything else on the page. Anybody who hasn't playeed the latest episode will inevitably be put out by the definite date of death sitting there.
I just feel like it's a little wrong to have it there as an option. By all means, we should have aspects of the article which go into detail about the death and the causes and the dates etc - Chloe has a whole section just for her considering the number of times she d…Read more >

Back from holiday, and ready to get cracking on the new episode updates. Lots of work to be getting on with here. Can't wait to start getting things under way.
New episode was CRAZY. My Jefferson theory was totally correct, but still some surprising incidents I wasn't quite expecting.
I've updated a bunch of pages already - you can bet that if you're reading any of the theory sections that I've helped write them up!

I probably won't be making as many edits in the coming two weeks, just because I'll be too busy living it up in Florida for a fortnight.

The wiki navigation bar is pretty clumped up at the moment and I think really needs sorting out. I sort of have a bit of an idea on how it should be organized but what does everyone else think? What tabs do you think should be there?
I think that the character tab list should either include more characters (we could also make a minor and major character tab) or we could create a characters article and link it to that page.
I think that the locations tab should either become a drop down list or it should have an article titled "Locations"(like the characters article idea) instead of being linked to a category.
I'm not sure about the gameplay tab as the tab "gameplay" is quite broad and quite a lot of articles are categorized into the category b…Read more >
I was wondering about whether we should include possible theory sections on each character's page?
I'm still on the fence, but heading towards the negative side.
Earlier today I went ahead and added one for Jefferson. Not sure whether to progress and add different ones for each of the characters that various fan theories apply to.
Is there a place in the forums for this kind of thing without adding it to articles? I figure that putting confirmed facts there rather than speculation would probably be better, and help ward off comments from contributors who are in disagreement.
What say you guys?
I'd appreciate some responses if you're around! =)
ThanksRead more >
I'm so glad to be here on the Life is Strange Wikia. I love the game, and I'd love to do my part to contribute to the community and all the articles here.
