Continuity mistake: At one point, Max mentions that she and Chloe made a mix-tape CD when they were both twelve. However, Max's journal in the game notes that Chloe is a year older than her, making Max's statement about them both being 12 when they made the mix-tape impossible.

Continuity mistake: Max takes a photo of herself at the start of episode one. When she uses this photo to time-travel in episode five, if you pay attention, it's slightly different than the original photo.

Plot hole: In episode two, Mr. Jefferson receives a phonecall at one point after talking to Kate. However, if you rewind time all the way and then don't interact with him, he doesn't receive the phonecall a second time. Flub in the programming of the time-travel.

Trivia: The game was released by Square-Enix. The developers threw in some references to other Square releases as a reference to this fact. Most notably being that Max will mention the film "Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within" and the character Lara Croft from the game "Tomb Raider" if the player optionally examines select items. (With Square having produced the "Final Fantasy" series, in addition to releasing the rebooted "Tomb Raider" series).

Trivia: One of the optional photos that can be taken in Episode 2 is a bit of graffiti in the bathroom that reads "Firewalk with Me." That is the name of a spin-off movie of the series "Twin Peaks." "Twin Peaks" was notably one of the influences behind "Life is Strange." There are also several other minor "Twin Peaks" easter-eggs hidden throughout the game.

Trivia: The game deals with some important modern issues, including cyber-bullying and teen suicide. Square-Enix, publisher of the game, ended up using the game to raise awareness of these topics, donating to anti-bullying advocacy groups and making promotional videos featuring the characters from the game talking about these topics.
