Episode One - Chrysalis
This guide does not cover most of the non-essential choices and interactions which make this game exceptional; explore as much as you possibly can to get more character development as you go!
Beginnings
The beginning is simple; Walk towards the lighthouse.
Max will jerk out of her vision and you will find yourself in her art classroom where you can have a look around.

When you want to move on, take a selfie with the camera on the desk. Mr Jefferson will notice and ask you a question. When class ends, you can’t leave without speaking to him. You will now also have a chance for the first optional photo of the episode. Take a snap of the etchings on the desk in front of Max’s one.

Leaving the classroom your next target is the bathroom at the end of the hall. You have the option to look at the characters in the halls, as well as check your locker.

In the bathroom, have a look around, use the faucet, take a picture of the butterfly and then watch through the cutscene. Boom! Back in the classroom again. Use your powers to rewind and give Jefferson all the right answers in all his conversations, leave the classroom and play through the bathroom cutscene. This time, you’ll want to look at the fire bell, rewind and push the mop bucket out of the way and grab the hammer. Rewind again for good measure and smack the fire alarm to save the girl.

Let the cutscenes play out and you’ll get interrogated by the Principal. Again, give whatever answers you like and get out of there.

Blackwell Campus
Plenty of opportunities for optional photos here! Check the front of the statue. Speak to Justin by the steps and rewind for right answers to get yourself a shot.


Have a look around and speak to people; you won’t be back here again in the episode. There are petitions to sign, portfolios to view and other nice little optional chats which are key for character development. Move on to the dorms when you're done.

Have a look around first; there's an optional photo of a squirrel by the tree opposite Kate on her bench.
To get Victoria and her sidekicks out of the way, you’ll need to switch the sprinklers on. Go down the path to the maintenance room and select use on the panel.

You’ll then need to tamper with Samuel’s bucket after watching him go up the ladder with the paint. When she’s covered, she’ll let you pass.
The Dormitories
In your dorm room, you can go ahead and take a picture in your mirror. Have a good explore, and then head to Dana’s room for the flashdrive. Cue the girl drama! You’ll need to talk to Juliet and then have a snoop around in Victoria’s room. You can re-arrange the pictures on her wall for another optional photo.



Print the email from her laptop by selecting that option on it; then grab it from the printer.
Hand it to Juliet as proof and then grab the flashdrive from Dana’s desk. You can talk to her and explore.
When you’re ready, leave the dorm. Warn Alyssa about the football coming at her, and take the next optional photo of the broken window.


Head towards the main school and you’ll come across another cutscene to intervene in.

For another optional photo, go look around the parking lot and find the RV before talking to Warren.

Write on the window and take a snap before talking to Warren. From here, you’ll end up meeting an old friend –Chloe, and going back to her house.

Chloe’s House



There is plenty to interact with in her room; you will need to locate the CD in the lock box under her bed. Turn on the power socket for the Hi-Fi in the corner by the TV, and put the music on. Then it’s time to fix your camera. Outside Chloe’s room, there is also plenty to do. Explore the bathroom and enter Joyce and David’s room for a chance to save a bird from dying.
Go downstairs to the garage. In the cabinets, you’ll find a TV revealing David’s surveillance equipment. Have a look at his files too, but don’t forget to rewind to remove the evidence!
The tools you need are on top of the dryer. Turn it on, rewind and push the cardboard under the unit to be able to grab them.

Head back upstairs to fix the camera, and eventually the conversation will turn to loud music and dancing.

Grab a picture of Chloe, and then prepare for choices. Choose to hide? Then move the lamp out of the way of the closet. Whatever your choices in this section, you’ll end up leaving the house with Chloe and heading to the Lighthouse.
Lighthouse
Instead of going forwards, if you’re after the photos, go back down the pathway and find a bird atop the large rock. Then make your way up the hill. Stand behind Chloe to get this shot.

As the conversation ends, you’ll get another crazy nightmare scene. This time, obstacles will fall in your way. Get the timing right with the rewinds and you’ll be fine. Read the newspaper at the top of the hill on the rail to snap out of the vision. The final cutscene here will end the episode.
Episode Two - Out of Time
Again, this guide does not cover most of the non-essential choices and interactions which make this game exceptional; explore as much as you possibly can to get more character development as you go!

The Dorms

This episode begins in Max’s room. Have a look around – some things are different. Don't forget to choose whether or not to water the infamous plant, Lisa! Grab the washbag from the wardrobe and head for the bathroom - down the corridor to the left. You can save Alyssa from being hit with toilet roll; you'll have her appreciation. You can also chat with Dana and Brooke if you choose.

It’s recommended that you keep tabs on Kate; so talk to her in the bathroom. Rub the link to the video off the mirror if you want after your shower, and head back to your room to get dressed.
Grab Kate's book; it should be sitting under some notes on the table beside the sofa. Rewind to prevent the soda from ruining it! Return it to Kate in her room. Another optional photo op is here; her rabbit. Again, plenty to explore in this room. Highly recommend looking at everything to help with your later choices.

Head out of the dorms and explore as you’d like. Talking to Samuel and Taylor, and getting the optional snap of the squirrel is up to you. If you want it, interact with the rubbish to lure the squirrel over, and move away from the bench.

Warren will catch you before leaving and ask you to the movies; say whatever you like!

The Diner
Exit towards the main building and you’ll grab the bus to meet Chloe at the Two Whales Diner. Once off the bus, you can interact with many of the surrounding characters, including the homeless lady out the back of the diner who sheds valuable insight into Arcadia Bay. Look through the fence from behind the diner, and you can find the optional photo of the dog. Another photo can be found in front of the diner if you look up at the sign.


Go to the bathroom inside the diner for photo number five, in the mirror.

Then go and sit down so that Chloe's mom - Joyce, can take your order. When Chloe turns up, prove your abilities to her by divulging what she has in her pockets. Fail at your first guesses, and she will show you.

She has:
- A Panda keychain
-7 Cigarettes
- 86 cents
- A parking ticket timed at 10:34am

The proof continues as she asks for a prediction of the future. You'll need to tell her that:
-The Trucker drops his mug
- The Cop's partner leaves
- Joyce stops the boys fighting
- The Jukebox goes crazy as a cockroach crawls on it

You'll be presented with a choice upon leaving the diner; whether or not to answer Kate's phonecall. Make your choice and leave.

The Junkyard

Plenty to look at in this area. The first optional photo is the old bus. The second is a Doe which appears to Max in the grassy area beyond the bus. Warning - you have to take this photo right away before an oncoming train scares it away. As a figment of Max's imagination, rewind is ineffective. You'll need to replay in collectible mode to get it, or replay the scene.


To find the bottles, I recommend watching a video tutorial; it's a lot quicker than a written explanation. Try this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CQNxmFfVrE
Time to test Chloe's shooting skills. Let her shoot and then rewind to give her directions. After this, you can choose from any number of targets around the range. However, many of them will cause disasters; you'll need to rewind and correct. Taking out the wheel rim and the left tire on the car will let you move on.
One nosebleed and flashback later, you can take another optional photo of Chloe on the car. Move to the side to catch her at this angle.

Frank appears, causing trouble for you. Difficult choices again. Follow Chloe out of the Junk Yard to the train tracks. After the cutscenes, you'll need to rescue her from the oncoming train. There are several ways to do this; you can destroy the control box or choose to open it more stealthily. If you get stuck, here is the way I chose to do it;

-Grab the crowbar to the left of the trail to the control building
-Bust open the building door
-Open the drawer nearest you and grab the wire cutters
-Go back down the path to the control box, and cut the red wire
-Switch the rails before Chloe is run over.

With Chloe once again saved, you'll end up back at Blackwell; talk to Mr Madsen, then head to the science room and speak with Warren. You can choose to help him with his project and improve his grade. Get help from Ms Grant. You can take an optional photo if you've helped out.

When you're done, leave for Jefferson's class. After you've spoken to him about Kate, go in and take the last optional photo of Alyssa, get rid of Victoria and sit down for class. You can check your phone if Jefferson is looking away.

Drama again; you'll need to make use of your rewind here to move forwards to save Kate. It's a slow walk, but you'll get there. Once on the roof, you can’t use your rewind power. You'll need to talk her down using information you've gathered earlier in the episode. If you want to save her, remember key facts like her father's affection for her and her favourite Bible passage. There's a great guide to save her here:
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=413414000
You’ll then end up in the principal's office with a choice of who to blame. Jefferson, David, or Nathan. Choose whatever; whether you get in trouble is up to you! A slew of cutscenes will finish off this episode.
Episode Three - Chaos Theory
Again, this guide does not cover most of the non-essential choices and interactions which make this game exceptional; explore as much as you possibly can to get more character development as you go- Especially in this episode!


Max’s Dorm
Max awakens to Chloe’s text. Explore the room and make your way out of the dorm. Talk to Taylor in the bathroom and Dana on the way and have an exploration around Victoria’s room. Shine the light on the figuring on her bookcase to eventually get the photo option.

Outside, have a good look around. The Maintenance room has some clues. A photo of this squirrel can be taken by simply getting close and rewinding. Sneak past Principal Wells and head out of the yard.

Blackwell Ninjas
Talk to Chloe and search some drawers; eventually follow Warren’s instructions to make the pipe bomb. Grab the can of soda from the vending machine, get the sugar from Ms Grant’s desk in the science room (and look at Warren’s test), the weed killer from on top of the cabinet and take two photos if you like; the aquarium and skeleton are in the classroom too. Head to the back of the art room to grab the duct tape.


Construct the bomb, and don’t panic – walk into the open office and rewind to before the bomb went off!

Unlock the door and snoop around with Chloe. You can take this shot from the front of the desk.
Grab the four files from around the office and join Chloe at the PC. Choose whether or not to steal the money and bail. In the pool, choose your changing room and play the scene out. Looking around, there’s also the option to change names on the Vortex party guest list – by the far side of the pool by the fire door. Just behind you when speaking to Chloe, you’ll find the coach’s office where the controls to the pool lights live.

Flick them and go for your midnight swim.
Hide from security by running back the way you came in, and then hide in one of the far away toilet stalls and head back towards the pool.

Chloe’s House
The next morning, wake up by taking a selfie and try to put your own clothes on.

Borrow some clothes from Chloe’s closet and head to the bathroom to take an optional photo;

Head downstairs for breakfast. Depending on your choice, collect the eggs from the bag by the front door, the bacon from the fridge and the milk from the table. If you open the window and shoo the bird out of the house from the bookcase and mantle, you can go outside to find it for a photo.

Wait for Joyce to get out the picture album and sit through the dialogue. Searching the garage for the password; go try the car under the sun visor for the diner receipt.

On the other side should be the password. David comes home and you’ll need to make another tough choice.

The Diner
After leaving the house with Chloe, head to the trucker just outside the diner and talk to him about his Needam and Rachel Amber to get a photo of his truck across the street.

Round the corner, take a snap of the dead bird surrounded by ants, and try talking to the homeless lady.
In the diner, interrogate the cop and Nathan, and get the keys off Frank. Find out more about his dog or him and Rachel Amber to get him to show the keys off. Head back out to Chloe, protect Alyssa if you like, and then throw the dog a bone.
Once inside the RV, look in the vents in the bedroom and grab the knife from the sink to pry the one on the wall by the door open. Talk to Chloe and bail from the RV.

♥♥♥♥♥ ain’t seen no Back to the Future II
Back in Max’s room, follow instructions to focus the picture. Play through the dialogue and take a picture of Chloe using the camera beside her. Have a look round.

Wait until William leaves; the scene needs to play out. Then rewind to steal his keys from under the baseball cap on the coffee table. Throw them out the back door, the window or down the sink, so he won't find them.

One hell of an ending later, we’re waiting for the next episode!
Episode Four - Dark Room
As always, this guide does not cover most of the non-essential choices and interactions which make this game exceptional; explore as much as you possibly can to get more character development as you go! For this episode in particular, it is extremely important to explore.

A lot of cutscene to begin with. As usual, say what you feel most appropriate. Get Chloe some water by grabbing the cup on the side-bench to the right of the bedside.

After more conversation, feel free to have a look around and grab the Bladerunner DVD from the drawer by the DVD player, near the TV.

When Chloe asks for her morphine, you’ll need to exit her room and make your way to the upstairs bathroom. It can be found in the left side of the cabinet above the toilet there. Again, feel free to explore.

Use the morphine with Chloe, and you’ll put it into the IV drip. Find the photo album on the dresser to the left of Chloe’s bed beside the window. Bring it to her, and flip the pages of the book as the girls reminesce.
Then consider her request. Choose as you will, and focus on the photo by pressing the left and right keys, and then the right and left mouse buttons until you hear the full sound of the girls.

The scene will play out, and Max will return to the Original Timeline in Chloe’s Bedroom. Get up, and then examine the board to continue.
Head downstairs to gather evidence from David’s locker in the garage. There are several ways to open it, but the easiest is with the code itself; 7171. Grab the documents and head back to the stairs to call Chloe down.

If you saved Kate, at this point Max can go to the hospital. Talk to her about Nathan for her help in finding his room number.

In the Prescott Dormitory Grounds, speak to some people to get confirmation that Nathan is off campus. Specifically, Daniel or Ms. Grant. Brooke will also help if you didn't agree to "Go Ape". After confirming Nathan is gone, speak to Chloe to go into the Dorm. Take the corridor to the left to find Nathan’s room (111). Investigate his PC, and then pull the couch back after examining the scuff marks on the floor; you will find his phone. Leave and head to Chloe. Nathan will approach and Warren will intervene. Choose to what extent they fight, and exit the Dorm.

Frank is next. This part is quite complex, with several possible results particularly related to previous decisions. I recommend going with your gut. However, here is a list of actions you should take for a consequence free scenario:

After failing, it is possible to ask Chloe to behave herself, discard her weapon if she has one, or ask Frank to close the RV door (if Pompidou is unhurt).
- Give Money (if you stole it from the handicapped fund)
- “I’m Sorry”
- “You Scared Me” OR "Old Hideout"
- “I love dogs” OR “Dog Rescue”
- “Rachel Photos” OR “You Know Rachel”

I’ll update here with a more detailed guide for every option when I have time, but for now here is a partially completed flow-chart for you!

Back at Chloe’s house, Max will need to organise the evidence gathered. This part is a little tricky.
Frank’s Clues
First, you will need to combine Frank’s account book with the name sheet he gave you. Then choose the three pages with multiple entries for Nathan, who shows up as “Rott”.

David’s Clues
Choose the Co-Ordinates sheets, License Plate pictures and Nathan’s pictures. From there, select the page for SXFTNDR, Nathan driving his car and the license plate photo matching it; the one to the far right with the busted light.

Nathan’s Clues
Choose the phone, the sim card, student file and small piece of paper. Use either the PUK code, or his DOB (0829), to unlock the phone.

You will then finally need to choose the third sheet of Nathan's texts (the top one), the first co-ordinates paper from the right, and the picture of the barn in order to solve the mystery of the location Nathan visited with Kate.

When you arrive at the barn, have a look around. To the left side of the barn, there is a movable sheet of metal, which you can use to get inside the building.


Locate the trap-door on the ground at the far wall (opposite the front doors of the barn). Try to open it, and then attach the hook on Max’s right to the trapdoor. Get a leg up from Chloe to the rafters above. Pull down the old motor above you to climb up. Rewind directly after this to pull the motor back up. You can then attach the motor to the other end of the rope to use as a counterweight, which busts the lock. Jump down and open the hatch.

Use the code “542” to get inside the room. Have a good look around. In the cabinet behind the PC desk, you’ll find the red files. After you’ve examined them, you’ll have time to look around before you head off to the Junk Yard with Chloe.


At Blackwell, after enduring cutscenes, you’ll find yourself in the Vortex Party. Speak to whoever you like, and find a way into the VIP section. This is slightly different depending on whether you got your name on the guest list in Episode Two or not. Either speak to Sarah at the entrance to the VIP curtain at the side of the pool, and then Courtney, who is by the bar alone, or go around to the opposite side of the pool and move the bollard. Move past it, and rewind before the angry DJ Doom comes for you! [/
Inside the curtain, speak to whoever you like about Nathan, but particularly Victoria. She's to the right of the bar beside Logan, and you'll need to speak with her to move on. Choose whichever options suit you in her conversation, and move on to leave with Chloe. After another cutscene, your next action will be to simply follow Chloe.

And then prepare yourself. Dear god, prepare yourself.

Episode Five - Polarized
As always, this game is best experienced by interacting in as many ways as possible with the world around Max. This episode is no different! Lots of cutscenes and dialogue in this one, but definitely one to explore in full detail for the best effect possible!

Max wakes up in the Dark Room. Break the bonds on her right leg and pull the trolley towards her. Then focus on the photograph. After the cutscenes you can speak with Victoria briefly. Again, focus on the photograph. Look at Max's journal on top of the crates to the left by the lamps and film equipment. Rewind all the way and speak to Jefferson about the Journal.

Focus on the photo, and then answer the dialogue questions. Examine the bag to Max's right leg and skip to the last page, then use the phone. For the optional photo in this scene, comfort Kate and the shot option appears.

On the plane, just examine the screen and you'll move on. In the gallery, head upstairs and examine your own photo on the back wall. If you want the optional photo, you'll need to take it before this, by standing behind the redheaded girl in the lower ground floor, and using her camera.
Head back upstairs and focus on the photo; do it quickly or you'll be interrupted.

Make the change by going ahead and tearing up the picture from the camera behind Max. Talk to Jefferson. Rewind after the scene and you'll be able to warn David, and also ask Jefferson for a photo, or for some water. This part is all about timing. Too late and you'll miss the mark, too early and you'll be turned on yourself. Select the warn option on the tripod Jefferson uses, just as it comes into line with the whiskey bottle. Shout at David to use the camera beside him, and then trip the cord on the lamp to Max's left.

Have a conversation with David about the situation, and leave the room.
Head into town. To save Alyssa, you will need to have saved her from harm in every episode. To save Evan, you need to talk to him before the debris hits him. To save the trucker, go to him by his truck and select help.
Head to the ruined building on the left hand side of the street, and go through the wall. Select use on the fuse box to the left by window. Walk through the fire to the fisherman and rewind to revive him. You can then access the fuse box through the broken glass in the window. Leave the building. Head towards the Diner, and use the sandbox in front of the building to stop the fire from spreading. Optional photos here are the burning whale beside the entrance and the car on the roof of the building to the right of the diner. Try the front door, then head round the side and try the back door. Head into the main diner and speak with everyone if you like, and then Warren. He will produce the photo and you can focus on it after making your decision.

Head to the scene and convince Chloe to believe you. Make her care about what Jefferson did to Max, and she'll comply.

The nightmare sequence is difficult to follow sometimes, so bear with me here.

Back in the classroom again, play through the scene as you did in the beginning of the game. Leave and you'll be in the dorm. Speak to Kate, follow her through her door. Then take the key from the table by the bathroom door, and unlock Dana's room. Rachel's room is the first door on the left; go through it too. Go to Victoria's Room. Head to Max's room. If you want the optional photo, head to the window by the bathroom door first and take a photo of the squirrels.

Head down the corridor to the bathroom; the spirit doe is at the end of the corridor.. it'll guide you. If you want the photo, open your journal in front of the skeleton decoration by the bathroom and then take the photo - you have to do the process in reverse.

Go around to the left and follow the pictures towards the lighthouse til you get to the floor cushion. Facing the lighthouse from there, turn directly around; follow the pictures. Jefferson is around the corner to the left so be alert. Keep going round til you get a clear path to the lighthouse. You'll need to go through the next section avoiding the light by hiding in the photoboards, towards the lockers.

Avoid the various other figures and keep heading in the direction of the lighthouse. The Go Ape photograph is hidden in Warren's locker; if you can find it, go ahead and take it. You'll find yourself in the JunkYard, all mashed up. Find every bottle for the last optional photo, and take it when they're lined up on the plank, similar to Chloe's gun range. Avoid the lights and keep heading towards the lighthouse. Sit on the bench, and wait out the cutscenes.

Try the door keypad, and then find the code reflected in the mirror; 0311.

Move through the diner and speak to Max. Then follow the pathway towards the lighthouse again.

Then make your choice.

Awesome guide, thank you! Just wanted to let you know that your "Frank guide" for Episode 4 is wrong. I didn't steal the money (not sure if that makes a difference) but saying "Our old hideout" resulted in Chloe killing Frank. Also, the last prompt is called "Rachel's Photo" and not "You know Rachel." Again, thank you so much!

Where did you get the code from for the David's locker in the garage? Max says "I know this lock" when I look at it, but I don't remember anything about it.

@Tali - I'll be sure to get it updated as soon as I get the chance! Thanks for the feedback =)
