Life is Strange is an episodic interactive drama from DONTNOD Entertainment. Set in the Pacific Northwest in the town of Arcadia Bay, the player follows the story of Maxine Caulfield and her seemingly newfound ability to turn back time. At the prestigious Blackwell Academy, Max must prepare with Chloe Price for the incoming storm of returning to her hometown after five years. Available on Steam, PSN and Xbox Live.

>"Alice, think about it... how many times this week did you try to nibble my leafs? I'm a plant, Alice, you're a bunny, maybe it's time I accept my destiny... OUR destiny."

What are the best Maximum Victory fanfics out there?
Before Episode 5's release:
>Lol Mari's theories're shitty.It's way more than shitty to become true
>Chloe has to die thing doesn't make sense.Don't worry they will come with unpredictable story
>We're gonna learn everything about Max's powers,Rachel and Prescotts even Nathan,spirit animals..
>Jefferson knows about Max's powers
>Nathan,Frank,David or Samuel's gonna save us
>Victoria's with Max,she'll save her
>(After seeing Cemetery scene from leaks) I'm sure it'll be Williams,Rachel's or Kate's grave.
>Rachel's the doe and Butterfly and probably we'll see her in Max's dream
>Blue Jay's Chloe
After Episode 5's release:
>Mari's shitty cliche theory became right
>We visited the SF art gallery for 3 seconds. FOR 3 DAMN SECONDS
>Jefferson became a silly bad guy from Disney
>David came to save us.He's a former-soldier but he can't even fight,just listens teenager's orders. Even he doesn't know she has some time travel powers.
>Victoria's with us in the dark room.Laying there and we can talk her or not.Just it.
>Nathan get killed,Victoria too
>Nathan knew something about the storm but they cut it.
>Warren explained Max's powers(!) (thanks warryn) We found out her power causes/related with Chaos Theory and storm.It's not like we didn't know or something.
>Storm is only coming for Bay because Chloe lives in there but Max's the one who keep changes the time
>Prescotts story erased.Nobody even mention their name.
>Rachel's story fucked too.She isn't doe,or butterfly,bluejay or even shit.
>Spirit animals thing died.Blue Butterfly's Chloe just it.
>Chloe dies again in one of endings (unpredictable) It gives you a lesson: You shouldn't have used your power.And you shouldn't play this game.Now erase your choices and cry like a bitch.
>Chloe has to die thing comes true, Cemetery scene explained with that.
>The other ending's short but it's less cliché than other.We saved Chloe,storm's hit the town and gone.That's it.
>Epilogue: Use ur imaginations:)muh budget

>Holy shit just go to the nearest skate park or punk rock concert
You can find Chloe in the punk rock concert, the skate park, you can find Max in photography club, guitar club, or whatever indie art club. Kate is in the church, of course. He sure to go to a more conservative one. Yep, no hillsongs or those megachurch crap.
Be glad that your crushes aren't out of this world. At least your crush aren't some stupid ridiculous anime girl.
But anon this sounds like ok advice.
Unfortunately without time rewind powers it may be difficult to get into her clique.
Was this song used anywhere in the game? I dont remember it. Shame, its really nice. I'd make for a nice outro montage song.
Btw did anyone else LOVE those outro montages in Ep1 and Ep2? I fucking loved those scenes.
that was Episode 3's trailer song, i think.
>Days when we were so young and naive, also when Episode 5 never happened
It's going to have a new cast.
>tfw you'll never see Kate again.
>Kate's hospital scene was only included as fanservice
Dontnod never really cared about Kate to begin with.
Are dontnod reps reading 4chan or is too out-there for them?
>Let Kate die in my game
>Still haven't played the hospital scene
I don't think I would have enjoyed the game as much if she lived, but she's still one of my favorite characters.
>Arcadia Bay's erased from the map
>Main protagonist will be male character
>He's an orphan but living with his bitch aunt. >Mafia killed his parents when he was 5.
>He's a total loser. Everyone bullies him in the school even the person he love
>Although his best friend is bad guy and also popular guy in the school.
>Someday, they prepare a party (drugs and shit)
>But main guy doesn't like those things
>Meanwhile red cockroach shows up
>Guy follows him
>Suddenly he sees the girl he loves
>But shit girl's banging with some random guy
>He screams and raises his hand
>He realizes that he can reverse time
>''Here we go again''
>In the end,
his best friend's became her lover but after that he found out his bff's father actually killed his parents. So you have to choose between ''Sacrifice pride or Kill your lover and got your revenge''
>pure girl love
>tfw nobody will love you truly, madly,psychopathly, purely as much as Max and Chloe love each other.
Max getting telling Jefferson to eat shit and die was sorta cute.
Max is feisty!
Outrageous to say that after what was just posted above you!
Selfie quality comes first. She also probably just didn't think much about how there'd be a flash.
But you can replay the game anytime you choose to.
also where are oldfags, anons? where are Katemarshfan, Scat and Selena Poster?
If you post this pic's continuation i swear.....................................
>totally an asshole
Why would she?
who does give a fuck about cuck
You ain't even a large-ish finite state machine, game Max.
>Maxine (aka Max) Caulfield
>She seems like a calm,shy girl but actually she's the most perverted thing you've ever seen.
>After she came back from another reality, she said that on her journal ''i wanted to kiss her again/or i regretted that i didn't kiss her''
>After she escaped from the dark room she's trying to find 'party photo' so she can save the blue chick.
>During the goddamn storm she sees a newspaper, and she's wondering go on a date with blue chick. pay attention DURING THE GODDAMN STORM.
>After these events they end on a beach
>Sees nightmare during the GODDAMN STORM
>Dark Room scene comes..
>Nightmare turns into the porn
>Blue chick flirts and kisses everyone, dances with her underwear and shit
>She finally wakes up
>Somehow she writes on her journal ''how she fantasizes about Chloe in her nightmare'' DURING THE GODDAMN STORM
well... she was busy fantasizing about blue chick
Can we get a community fanfic going? We should write on what happens to Max after she saves Chloe.
Most of those are rather recent anons. Demen joined in around the 50s? And Renderanon has been around pobably since earlier than that. Not sure about Katemarshfan but the rest only appeared well into the triple figures as far as I recall.
Check OP. Maybe we should continue that...
>At first, they intend to make Max as male character. Then they changed it.
That doesn't sound right, most interviews pointed out that they struggled to get a publisher because of the protag being female.
first, they 'intended' to make her as male character ; but actually they wasn't sure about this, and then they changed their ideas.
>''Max never Maxine''
meh. this explains why she has hots for Chloe canonically.
I am putting together a flowchart (a-la-/mu/) of music similar to LiS
Currently working on a few different thoughts for the flowchart. If you guys have any ideas, please share. Current plan is 3 categories; Victoriaish, slowcore, and indie pop. To bad I have literally no motivation to work on it...

Really Max? Is that all you think about while storm's wiping out the whole town?

nice blind assumption
> Well, my new years resolution was just to work harder and shit.
Same here but I am unsure whether that is possible
Introverted people are usually the most perverted.
you guys have a strange understanding of "perverted"
people post renders here
of jefferson shooting max in the head, fucking her ass and then cum being farted out after she falls to the ground livelesslyand you call max perverted because she dreams about people kissing or because she's happy to see her friend after coming back from a reality where that friend asked her to kill her
towards the end she definitely starts to notice some romantical feelings and tiny little bodily attractions perhaps, but perversion??
thank you i have them in red too
You are making ther error of assuming a homogeneous group.
This is not the case.
For example, vampiregirlanon posts vampire girl closeups when he randomly and meaninglessly complains about something, but he's all a class on his own.
>she dreams about people kissing
For god's sake that scene was just about Chloe.
>of jefferson shooting max in the head, fucking her ass and then cum being farted out after she falls to the ground livelessly and you call max perverted because she dreams about people kissing or because she's happy to see her friend after coming back from a reality where that friend asked her to kill her
Dude are you really serious or retarded? You're just projecting fetish Steve's posts and competing his posts with people who's calling Max as pervert? That's not even same thing.
anon you scare me i only understood vampire
i wasn't trying to assume, just surely there's no base for calling my max a pervert!
no i'm saying max is not a pervert and the idea that the stuff that was listed is perverted is laughable
(originally obsessed)word seriously
this guy'll never get this joke,right?
>>of jefferson shooting max in the head, fucking her ass and then cum being farted out after she falls to the ground livelessly and you call max perverted because she dreams about people kissing or because she's happy to see her friend after coming back from a reality where that friend asked her to kill her
Steve is a weird, weird guy. I bet he's into Japanese porn.
Yes! Max is not a pervert! She's a introverted girl who likes taking pictures and decently plays the guitar, not too good, but not too bad.
> fucking her ass and then cum being farted out after she falls to the ground livelessly
Pchao! This is like the junta torture scene in book related.
Afterwards torture guy leaves the military compound to meet his girlfriend and complains about all the hard work they are dumping on him.
The book also promotes
always AK, never M-16
But anon without Nihonporn we would never have LiS fanfiction with lots of fluids and lips like mating eels.
I know someone has the Rachel Amber edit. Post it. :3
Axtually it's a large team that made it (just look at the credit roll), but he's director.
Also I have sussed that the "X" in picrelated that are everywhere (not only where Chloe is drfting) are actually defaults for artwork that has never been filled in. I somehow think this is a good choice though.
I remember someone posted an idea here where Chloe survived getting shot in the head because she had a metal plate there from a skateboarding injury. Then she regains consciousness in the Junkyard, goes to the barn, destroys Jefferson, and saves Max.
Completely unrealistic and implausible, but I liked it.
Plus I just want to see Chloe get some revenge on him.
Still a better Episode than Episode 5. If you go the ridiculous route, at least go full ridiculous!
She should, but it's not that easy. Its probably how she's dealt with stress for a while.
And even though Max will be there to help her, it would probably take a while to break that habit. She'd probably cut back drastically and then eventually be able to ditch it for good.
Never. Vicky and Max are best girls.
As far as rendered images, especially ones trying to emulate a selfie, go- that one is really good.
The skin and shadows look natural, as does the expressions. They both look very content and peaceful.
Just looked up their DA profile, very little stuff but but they made another outfit for Max.
What, you want a Princess Leia look? I agree it's old fashioned.
Pic related, this is clearly Max ... in SPAAACEEE!
I don't know what but apparently a Wowser is a thing:
'Wowser: an ineffably pious person who mistakes this world for a penitentiary and himself for a warder"
Historian Stuart Macintyre argues:
"the achievements of the wowsers were impressive; they passed laws that restricted obscenity and juvenile smoking, raised the age of consent, limited gambling, closed down many pubs, and in 1915–16 established a 6 pm closing hour for pubs, which lasted for decades"
In other words, people minding your own business. Today they are destroying society in the "War on Drugs".
Literally look it up. That guy used XNALara though. I guess you just get acquainted with the program and then start inserting LiS models.
The tornado wasn't yet shown at that point (end of Episode 4) and so in this universe it simply wouldn't exist. Then again, how did they manage to convince her that she can rewind time (let alone induce visions and create a solar eclipse)? I guess walking backwards is a thing. Maybe the tornado is just Samuel in a costume. I never did shake the feeling that a lot of characters are just Samuel in a costume...
And I AM explictily NOT talking about Victoria here!
Kate wasn't going around screaming that everyone was going to Hell, vocally judging, or stuff like that. The only "preaching" she ever really did was having the Abstinence Club. But that seemed to just be a counter to the Vortex Club.
For students that wanted to do other things besides what went on at the parties (Drinking, smoking, sex). They probably just chatted, played games, and stuff like that in a friendly manner.
>tfw you'll never play DnD with the Blackwell nerds.
TFW you never played D&D with friends when kid
I like how only Dana and Chloe say a thing when you're going through their rooms and belongings. Everyone else just stays quiet, like they expect it from Max. Even Kate, in her depressed state, doesn't bat an eyelid.
Warren smiled and pushed his weewee into max. "oh yes" he said. "oh no" max said. Her response let him down as his weewee began to shrink until it disappeared. Warren cried as max took a photo. "I'm submitting this to the everyday hero's contest " he cried harder
Max is the ultimate mindfuck.
She could just rewind and nobody would be the wiser.
Though in-game, actual universe time is not handled so well, like when checking the garage at the Price home or Frank's RV: it takes 1 second. Get in, root around for 10 minutes, rewind, get out, possibly with the physical goods that will be available only minutes later. So p0wned!
That makes me wonder how Nathan could get into Max' room and mess things up. Everybody in the dorm must have been "busy with other things" to not notice and Max doesn't even raise pluperfect hell. What an oppressive atmosphere at Blackwell.
The whole time I was waiting for someone to put everything together and realize the re was something special about Max.
David with his cameras, see Max basically teleport around.
Jefferson when Max is in his classroom, runs outside, and then is suddenly on the roof in a matter of seconds. Or if he read her diary.
Her photo had won. Max smiled as a large display showed warren crying. People stood around and clapped. Brooke approached max. "that was not nice max. " she said. "shut the heck
up " max reply
Actual timing never works.
Very first scene may take 10 minutes to the bathroom depending on what you do.
After that, you are in a hurry ... be there in 3!
Events unfold even faster.
> David with his cameras, see Max basically teleport around.
But the cameras are not up yet? And then they get shut down, but EVERY VOTE COUNTS.
Don't let the door hit you.
Discussion levels fluctuate anyway, currently it's quiet
the actual game has been discussed a countless number of times since it finished two months ago, now there is only cuteposting
It has been very quiet today. But I honestly find that better than yesterday where it was pretty active, but full of arguing about stuff that's been argued to death about. Or just shit-flinging.
Isn't there other schools in other parts of the world? I had some PS2 game that was a Quidditch World Cup and there were different teams from around the world.
Discussions that are genuinely enjoyable still happen. It's usually the ones that are not about the endings.
there's a russian and a french equivalent of hogwarts. I assume there must be others, seeing as magical kids evidently are all around the world.
I imagine there would have to be several american ones.
Fantastic Beasts might shed a bit more light on the matter. It seems to be canon.
That's so hilariously appropriate, I can't believe I missed that. Time for another reread of the entire series I think :^)
I think in HP world there are not really any bad people apart from death eaters and dark wizards, its sort of an idealized world.
>Fantastic Beasts might shed a bit more light on the matter. It seems to be canon.
It kind of baffles me that they're making a trilogy based solely around Fantastic Beasts. They could have done a series of stand-alone movies that expand the lore in multiple time periods.
It's a bit bizarre, but I have faith in JK. She loves her universe so much that she's literally paranoid about ever tarnishing it with another entry - so I reckon there's a good story in there.
Also Redmayne rarely takes bad scripts because he's a bit precious. For him to be Scamander means it's probably looking good.
I do agree that the lore deserves a bit more attention though, the books are surprisingly deep but only really brush on quite a few things.
What if season 2 is a prequel about Jefferson drugging, raping, and murdering innocent college girls?
Hello i just got into this game again but i see now that my save from episode 1 is a goner. Is there a way to quickly choose my previous choices instead of running trought the episode for my 3rd time?
I know that i could just skip it but if i do this, my choices will be randomly done.
I highly doubt that will happen. It would be kind of cool though if you could do stuff like read a newspaper and see news about his trial. Or other little references to the first.
>IT'S THE BEST SCI-FI FILM EVER MADE!
I liked Lightning calling Jefferson over to her. lol
The final choices aren't affected by any your previous decisions. Scenes and dialogue changes throughout each episode depending on what you do but the endings are the same no matter what.
Despite how much people shit on it 95% of the game is enjoyable.
If a bad ending makes you retroactively hate an entire game then pass on LiS.
Here we go, hopefully I'll git gud enough to start taking some requests.
Thanks a lot, ass.
I am so going to haunt you.
Just find a girl who's into you. If she's not then move on until you get one who is.
Warren's not a bad guy, he just can't take a hint though.
Some time ago some anon was asking about movies similar to LiS, i just watched Safety not guaranteed and it is basically the closest i got to a LiS movie.
The only thing that is missing is qt lesbians
Mine are too. This game was the first time in a while that I got hyped during something (Not necessarily before the game's release, but definitely while playing it) , and then nearly all of my hopes were dashed at the end.
From now on I'm just going to expect something to be shit so that if it's not I will be pleasantly surprised.
Really doesn't matter. Dontnod seems adamant that the story is over and that they did a good job. So believe whatever the hell you want, not like anything will ever come out that retcons it.
They didn't even give us the closure we needed. It's like, they want us to use our imagination. Or they just can't be bothered at all.
I was hoping we could play a really short ending at the end of the two cutscene, then you get freeroam mode.. Why didn't anyone thought of this?
Exactly. And it wouldn't have even costs that much more money. You don't even have to create another scene.
You could just add more pages to the diary that we can read where we see pictures and read about what happened and who did what.
Or have Max narrating that stuff.
We got none of that, so imagination and headcanon it is.
More like they wanted to make people cry over needless tragedy because they think that means they're good writers and the story is deep.
Don't show anyone alive so you assume they're all dead. Or just let Chloe die without giving Max a chance to try something new.
But it backfires on them since it's ambiguous then it means you can also conclude other things like that there are people alive or that Max went back again and found a way to make everything right and save both Chloe and Arcadia Bay.
It really just comes down to not giving a fuck and doing what you want. You only get one life, so don't live it in a shell. If you think you want to do something then consider the consequences, and if you feel you can deal with them, then go ahead and do it. If you have doubts about the consequences, then that's your body and mind telling you no at that moment.
How? The only tumblr thing is the option of a gay relationship, and I'd argue that this option alone does not make a game tumblr, especially since you don't even have to do it.
Don't bother replying. Nearly everyone who says that never played the game and just judge it by the fact Chloe has dyed hair, and that the protagonist is a girl. Like those on /v/ that say anything where a character is angry is edgy. A bad meme in the best case, and in the worst case statements from actual morons that truly believe it.
>DALEK 1: You told us to imagine.
>DALEK 3: And we imagined your (ending's) irrelevance.
I did originally, then I saw Nathan sniveling and actually felt bad for him. Then I rewound and pulled Warren off thinking showing Nathan mercy would come into play later. Even if at the time I didn't know when or how.
Why does everyone hate the endings so fucking much? It's not a "hurr mass effect 3" situation, you just missed the fucking point
and/or picked to save bae which you knew was the wrong thing to do.
Nice. She looks so tired and jaded.
Not that I can blame her.
It's amazing how she is the first time we see her, and then how she instantly perks up the second she sees Max. Thinking about how she was after Max left for Seattle, and also after Rachel disappeared, is not good.
I genuinely wonder what the motivation behind fanart like this is.
The whole idea of a game being *Insert site here* the Game is wrong. It's wrong because that's implying that an entire site shares a hivemind where there's no difference in thinking.
Hell, 4chan has an >>>/lgbt/ board and Tumblr has White Supremacist blogs.
And the game itself hardly lends itself to the SJW way of thinking that nobody can be offended or shown anything graphic. Because there's a whole lot of mature things in this game handled in a realistic way, for better or worse.
They all have their strengths and weaknesses because of the wildly different ways they tell their narratives.
Gone Home makes the most with less by showing the potential of what simple exploration and narration combined with an atmosphere of loneliness and nostalgia can do. But the lack of anything more cuts its reach short.
The Last of Us: Left Behind had the best dialogue, chemistry and interactive teen activities. I was never one for hanging at the beach or lighthouse, but chilling at the mall and patronizing photo booths, carousels, arcades, halloween shops were the norm for me at that age. But its a short vignette of a much grander picture and that is a zombie apocalypse story first and a coming of age story second.
Life is Strange has the benefit of being much longer the other two at five long episodes and one episode alone can be longer than the playtime of the other two combined. But we have to admit some of the dialogue was lacking, atrocious even and there were issues in the storytelling. There also seemed to be a mixup by forgetful adults about what belongs from 90's culture and modern times.
I guess what counts as the better teenage coming of age story depends on what teen you were and your taste.
Found the Redditor.
>But we have to admit some of the dialogue was lacking, atrocious even and there were issues in the storytelling.
I meant the script not storytelling.
Definitely Koethe Koethe on Youtube, if you don't already know of him. He writes music that is directly inspired by Life is Strange and even uses some of the same musical elements.
And while this band itself really doesn't have an LiS feel, even though I really like them, I think this song in particular goes well with the game (For a few occasions and points of view).
For anyone who watches Power Pak's abridged series, I just sat through this entire ramble and would like to justify it by delivering highlights
>The script for episode 5 is longer than the last two episodes combined
>Hopefully it'll be out by mid-Jan, but that's not a hard promise
>Hoping to move on to other abridged series' (Fallout and Telltale games being recommended by viewers) as well as doing more LiS vids such as in-character Lets Plays as Max and Chloe
>He is on twitter
>This took 17 minutes to say
I could have sworn I saw a LiS "fail state"/death scene montage a few months ago before I actually played it for the first time (I looked it up because I was reading reviews saying things like "this game is fucked" so I wanted to see why) and one of the fail states was Chloe getting into a boxing ring to save Max for some reason and getting knocked out. I closed out of the video after that because I decided that I might end up playing it someday and I didn't want to spoil anything else. I played through the entire game wondering when the scene would come up and it never did. I guess it must have been another game, but I could have sworn it was Chloe and Max.
Because they render the whole game functionally pointless. Nothing you do or save or fail to save matters at the end. None of your choices besides the last one are important whatsoever.
In a film or a book, bay or bae would both be fine endings.Both have a message, and Max, the protagonist, changes as a character in both. For a non-interactive narrative that's perfectly fine. But this is a game. It is an interactive medium. And furthermore it is explicitly a game about your choices and their consequences being important. When you choices don't matter at the end of a game like that, shit is officially fucked.
Very good, Qtori. Only things I would suggest would be to add some more colors to her hair and make her eyebrows blonde. But those are only very small things to change, and even without them it's still a nice concept.
Also someone give her a hug so she's not as sad.
Difficult as there are so many vibes that are all over the place. One has to classify first!
Currently listenting to "Kent Sparling - Evening Air, Freeway Birds, No Wind Birds" on http://somafm.com/deepspaceone/ -- have a gander.
Surprisingly steep learning curve but I'm finally getting the hang of this shit.
>Did it suck? Should i not play the rest?
If you wanna play it so bad, then play it until Episode 5 San Francisco Art Gallery.
Before Chloe's phone call,and then press Alt+F4.
Also I'm still mad at this ''poor'' bitch for didn't bring Chloe with her.
You'll find your Max some day anon!
Another facial animation comparison plus general commentary on body language and dialogue
Anyone who knows game development a little better than me, how significant do you think the differences are in the 'dead/alive' facial animation? They're very subtle, pretty much just whether Nathan's eyes are focused or not, maybe a little brow tension. But side by side they're still visibly different, which to me seems like it would suggest intentional fiddling whereas a straight cut and paste should be perfectly identical. Plus it's a close up, so deliberately making even subtle changes is something they might consider worth the effort. But I have no idea if there are seemingly unrelated factors that might be in play here to unintentionally prevent them from being perfectly identical.
We picked this scene apart a lot during release so a lot of the body language observations in this video are nothing new, but it's interesting now that we have a greater sense of Nathan's dependance on Jefferson and break with reality to consider this interpretation of his victim blaming comments of Kate and reaction to Jefferson trying to cover his ass - how Nathan could possibly think that was a helpful thing to say.
(Not really sure what she's going on about at the very end with Jefferson's lecture though).
I think everything was pretty obvious.For example from the Episode 2: Jefferson's 'real' villain. Although most people blamed Nathan; even we found out about him very easy 'he drugged Kate'. But for Jefferson, he made Kate cry before her suicide attempt, and then that suspicious 'phone call' was enough to suspect him. Then i blamed Jefferson because 'Nathan was pretty obvious' and regret nothing.
Speaking of foreshadowing, that doe 'rachel's spirit' or something (but afterwards they cut it ), was standing on Rachel's grave in Episode 2. And then we found out about Rachel in Episode 4 and doe disappeared. We can't tell or know if that doe Rachel's spirit or something else. We didn't get any explanation and they left the door open..

Hey! I am kinda in the "same" situation. Wanna' talk about it?
I just want to find a nice girl who likes to be comfy and doesn't mind me for who I am. Seems to be difficult despite the literal thousands of girls I've seen and talked to.
Well I don't want to turn this thread into group therapy general, but I find that it's difficult for me to make a proper connection with anyone else. I just seem to be different. I'm probably on some sort of spectrum but whatever the case it makes people treat me differently. Doesn't help that my head's all sorts of fucked.
>join a club last year
>they're all friends already and have no desire for new friends
>their in-jokes and banter is impenetrable for someone who hasn't already been part of their circle for a while
No photography club... I tried the creative writing society but they were really not very nice.
You gonna join in the same period as the freshmans shouldn't you? That way you get to know other people who don't know each other yet.
Someone that sounds like a Harry Potter fanfic club.
Maybe try the guitar club? You are bound to find lot's of Maxes there since well.. Guitar is probably as hipster and 'indie' as photography. And it's less expensive too.
I still like to think that originally Sean was more directly involved and the phone call was meant to foreshadow that. Jefferson certainly wasn't talking to Nathan or Wells during that scene (both of whom we could see were busy) so I can't imagine anyone else.
The presence of the receipt in the bunker gives the impression that it was purchased not too long ago (I can't remember if there was a date on the receipt). Without his direct involvement it makes absolutely no sense for Sean to have built a bunker under an abandoned building instead of his own home. I suppose it's possible that he did already have one under his home but it's just a waste of money to place one under the barn, even if it does have ancestral value. I can believe that Sean would spoil Nathan with some fancy equipment or a flash car. But even for someone as rich as Sean Prescott, $1.3 million for a bunker plus the expenses of the equipment, decorations and security system is a fucking ludicrous sum for what I'm guessing he believes is Nathan's school project.
For me the biggest Sean thing isn't the silly amount of money he'd be dropping on outfitting the dark room, that can be written off as a careless rich parent who don't give a fuck, but when he forces the principal to not cancel the vortex party after kate offs herself. That shows vested interest in what's going on.
All of that is true.
And I still can't imagine how one gets a bunker underneath an old barn in the middle of the forest.
All of Arcadia Bay would know about it (hey, dontnod lost another thread here) and the barn would be brand new (no machinery from the 40s and the olde family paperwork would be there)
This reminds me that in the comic "The Time Trap" (1960), belgian comic writer Edgar P. Jacobs has evil professor Miloch Georgewitch install a secret laboratory on the outskirts of Paris underneath a decrepit house. He builds a Time Machine there. Which he then leaves as a bequest to his enemy, Sir Mortimer.
Anything is possible!
