Life is Strange

There exists a lot of Unused Content that was cut from Life is Strange.[1] Through unpacking the game files, you can discover several files that weren't used in the game. Those files hint to a lot of plans DONTNOD Entertainment had for the game but which were discarded while under further development, mostly due to budget issues or unnecessity regarding the story. They also reveal a lot of additional information on the characters and their relationships, or possible alternate sequences.

Unused Audio Edit

There exists a huge amount of unused sound files that can be found in the extracted game files.

Unused Scenes Edit

There was a planned hospital scene for "Polarized" which was meant to happen between David Madsen saving Max in the Dark Room and the scene at the diner during the storm. In this quick scene, David would have brought Max to the hospital after freeing her from the Dark Room, but Max would have escaped to go get the photo from Warren. It was stated by Michel Koch that they scrapped this scene because it "didn't add much to the story and they preferred to focus their energy on more dialog and time between Max and Chloe after."[5]

These two videos appear to be an early version of the intro of Episode 3.
