You are Max, a photography senior who saves her old friend Chloe by discovering she can rewind time. The pair soon find themselves exposed to the darker side of Arcadia Bay as they uncover the disturbing truth behind the sudden disappearance of a fellow student.

Meanwhile, Max begins to have premonitions as she struggles to understand the implications of her power. She must quickly learn that changing the past can sometimes lead to a devastating future.

Key Game Features:

Doug will be your voice-over commentator showing you around the game’s areas. The full 3-hours-long playthrough can be seen at the top of this page.

The story so far: In this next installment of Life is Strange, Max and Chloe’s investigation into Rachel Amber’s disappearance lead them to break into Blackwell Academy after dark, to search for answers. Secrets will be uncovered and Max will find another use for her power.

Note: The choices you made in episode 1 & 2 will carry over to Episode 3 and you’ll really start to see those decisions having a major impact on the story.

Puzzle Solutions: Pipe-Bomb Part Locations & Principle’s Office Door Alarm

Pipe-Bomb Building Tip:

How to open the door to the principle’s office?

Max needs to make a pipe-bomb to blow up the door handle. The bomb part locations are:

1. Soda Can Location: Can be found in the Vending Machine, outside the principle’s office, in the hallway.

2. Sugar Location: Can be found in the Science Class, on the teacher’s desk.

3. Sodium Chlorate Location: You can find the Weed Killer (with Sodium Chlorate in it) in the Science Class as well, in the back of the room, at the top of the cabinet.

4. Duct Tape Location: Can be found in the Art Class, in the back of the room, next to the printer.

Principle’s Office Door Opening Tip:

How to stop the alarm that goes off after you open the door to the principle’s office?

Max needs to run into the principle’s office by bypass the alarm. Then while you’re still standing inside the office rewind until right before the pipe-bomb was set off by Chloe. Then quickly unlock the door from inside the office, so there’s no longer the need to force the door open and the alarm was never set off by the explosion/smoke!

Essentially, from Chloe’s perspective you pop from outside to inside the office to open the door.

Alternative Choice #1: Steal the Money (or not)

What follows is an overview of all Alternative Choices in “Episode 3: Chaos Theory”.

Alternative Choice #2: Max Kisses Chloe (or not)

For the best effect, first have Max kiss Chloe, then rewind and don’t kiss her.

Doug’s reaction to what ensues afterwards is priceless! 😀

Alternative Choice #3: Choose Chloe over David

Here’s what happens if you side with Chloe over David.

Alternative Choice #4: Lie or Tell The Truth To The Homeless Lady
