Trivia Edit

Easter Egg signature
  • Raoul has a background in film which heavily influenced the appearance and execution of Life is Strange Season 1.[1]
  • Raoul on interactive storytelling: "I find it a lot harder to make a game than a movie, because you have to keep that in mind: interactivity makes things difficult."[2]
  • Raoul's cute little dog signature is present on Max Caulfield's pencil case that we first see in Episode 1 in Mark Jefferson's classroom. It is unknown whether he drew it on the pencil case texture himself or whether somebody on the art team drew it on his behalf.
