Rebecca and Sophie in The Last Express

The Last Express features 30 non-player characters who the player can learn more or less about depending on how they progress through the non-linear narrative. Two of these characters are friends (or more than friends): the English woman Rebecca Norton and the French woman Sophie de Bretheuil. By listening to their conversations (see an example here) and reading pages of Rebecca’s diary (see video below), it becomes clear they are in a romantic relationship, though potentially a one-sided relationship. It is, however, possible to miss many of these references if the player is not paying attention to these two characters (who are not central to the plot). Rebecca’s diary pages and the related sound files are available in the video below (0:39-2:16).
