Trivia Edit

  • Upon the release of "Out of Time", international hotlines were provided by DONTNOD Entertainment for anyone who may be (or may have been) affected by any of the issues in Life Is Strange, and especially those in "Out of Time" that addressed bullying, harassment or suicidal thoughts. The link is here.
  • The website link that Victoria Chase writes on the bathroom mirror, "katesvid.com", is a real link to a blog with a banner that tells you to "Check out Kate's tongue record!" and a single header of "Kate at the Vortex Club!!!". The video cannot be viewed as it bears the message that it was "removed by the user", linking to the fact that Victoria took the video down after Kate's suicide attempt.
  • In Dana's room, Max can look at the roller blades in the corner and make a comment that she wanted to be a Derby Girl, but Derby Girls wear roller skates, not in-liners.
  • When Max gets dressed in this episode, she says that Einstein had the "same exact suit for every day of the week". This is an indirect reference to the characters in the game that have the same outfits with different skins.
  • Chloe and Max re-enact the railroad scene from the coming of age film Stand by Me. Writer Jean-Luc confirmed the reference on Facebook adding that it's one of his favorite films.
  • Max mentions American novelist and poet Jack Kerouac when explaining the attraction of train tracks to Chloe.
  • The quote "maybe she doth protest too much" by Mr. Jefferson to Max during their conversation about Kate at the Art Lab refers to the to the quote "the lady who doth protest too much, methinks" from the play "Hamlet" by William Shakespeare.
  • Square Enix's blog played an April Fools' prank by advertising a Lisa plant as official Life is Strange merchandise.
  • Gaming website Destructoid reported on February 26, 2015 that "Out of Time" had been delayed, due to being under the impression that episodes were being released exactly six weeks apart from each other, but DONTNOD Entertainment reported that things were still on schedule for the episode to be released near the end of March.
  • A hands-on demo of the beginning of the second episode was made available at Pax East on March 6, 2015 during the Life is Strange panel, "What if: An Insiders Look at Life is Strange".
  • On March 14, 2015 atEurogamer's EGX Rezzed, DONTNOD Entertainment revealed a fifteen-minute look at the second episode's opening.
  • The locomotive in the junkyard and in the second "Save Chloe" scene is of an indeterminate type. Due to the flared radiators on the back, placement of the air reservoirs above the fuel tank, the placement and size of the dustbin vent and hatch, the placement of the radiator fans, presence of HTCS trucks, and the overall length, we can assume the base is an EMD SD70M-2, SD70Ace, or SD80MAC (the biggest detail being the flared radiators). However, the nose's design is probably based on a GE 8-40B. The aforementioned locomotives are only found in Oregon through class 1 railroads such as BNSF and UP, as no class 2 or 3 railroads in Oregon own said locomotives. The railroad "Oregon Rail" bolstered by the locomotive is also fictitious with design elements similar to the Central Oregon and Pacific Railroad. The couplings of the locomotive are Scharfenbergkupplungen, a type of coupling used all over the word for high speed trains. This type of coupling is, however, not used in America. The railcars pulled by the locomotive are a type of stake car found exclusively in Germany and Austria. American railcars never have less than 4 axles and are always on rotating trucks, usually with coil springs. The couplings on the railcars do not match the ones on the locomotive and appear to just be a piece of metal.
  • The audio files for Episode 3 contain a file called "VO_E3_6B.STM_pck-0000000043", featuring Officer Berry's voice: "Since you know so much about episode 2, maybe you should tell me what's going on? I sure hope you're not proud of yourself for playing a leaked, incomplete game, and, if you do it again, next time you roll through Arcadia Bay might be your last time. Choose wisely." This is probably related due to the leak of "Out of Time" before release.
