Choice: Answer

Consequences:

Chapter 2

Kate appreciates it that Max answered the phone, but Chloe will get into a fight with her mother while waiting for Max to end her conversation.

During the rooftop situation, it will be easier for you to save Kate. You will get two dialogue options: “You are my friend” and “I’m here for you” and each one brings you closer to saving the girl.

Choice: Don’t Answer

Chapter 4

If Kate survived and is in the hospital, Chloe will be sorry and apologize to Max for almost causing Kate’s death.

Significant Decision #3

The third significant choice can be found in the third chapter of the game, during the assault on Chloe. You can choose to either shoot the assailant or refrain from doing so. Your choice has no impact on the third episode, as the gun had no bullets left, so you were unable to make the shot.

Choice: Shoot

Consequences:

Chapter 2

Frank will be angry that Max tried to shoot at him, even though the magazine was empty.

Chloe will be happy that she had the gun on her.

Frank refuses to take the gun while Chloe jokes about marrying Max. This occurs in Chapter 3 where Max finds the gun in Chloe’s room. When Max tries to talk to Frank, he recalls that it was her who tried to shoot him. In Chapter 4, it becomes difficult to befriend Frank and he will only be pacified if Max explains her intentions during the event. In Chapter 5, Chloe and Max share a kiss and the choice “Don’t Shoot” has consequences.

If Max chooses not to shoot, in Chapter 2, Frank takes the gun and blames Max for not doing anything. In Chapter 3, the gun is absent and Frank threatens to smash Max’s camera if she takes his picture. In Chapter 4, Frank is easier to befriend and does not ask Max about the events. Finally, in Chapter 5, Chloe and Max hug and the fourth important choice of the game is to save Kate.

The conversation with Kate can have a series of positive choices to save her. If Max makes at least two positive choices from the important choices 1-3, it can save Kate. During the conversation, Max has to choose the right responses to save Kate, such as “You matter, not just to me” and “You’re my friend.” If Max makes these choices, Officer Berry will be absent from the meeting in the Principal’s office, and Kate comes to the hospital in the final scene. Max will also become more confident and receive praises on her Facebook profile. However, the door to Kate’s room will be secured with police tape, and her friends will comment on her suicide.

Kate’s parents will message Max to thank her for her help, and Officer Berry will also express her gratitude to Max. Alyssa will suggest visiting Kate in the hospital. In Chapter 4, Max will visit Kate in the hospital and receive multiple messages from her. Kate can also be asked for help in finding Nathan’s room. In Chapter 5, Max will notice an inscription that reads “I WANT TO DIE” on Kate’s desk in the classroom. If the player did not save Kate, consequences will occur in Chapters 2 and 3, including the Principal assuring everyone that Max did everything she could to save Kate, Officer Berry being present at a meeting, and Warren consoling Max. Additionally, many people will cry for Kate and comment on her suicide, and Max will lose confidence in her powers. Kate’s room will be secured with police tape, and Max will receive a message about Kate’s funeral. Max can blame either Nathan or David for Kate’s death, and there are consequences for each choice. If Max blames Nathan, she will be suspended and Nathan will ridicule her. If Max blames David, the same consequences will occur.

The Principal warns Max not to speak to him outside of his office regarding her suspension. The chase at the Blackwell swimming pool will involve David. Chloe and Max discuss Max’s suspension at Chloe’s house. Nathan will behave cruelly towards Max. Chapter 5. Jefferson will not bring up the conversation held in the Principal’s office. Choice: No action. Consequences: Chapter 3. Nathan will not contact or email Max or Victoria. Dana will not speculate about Kate’s suicide. David will participate in the Blackwell swimming pool chase and return home in his uniform, complaining about the reports he wrote the previous day.
