DONTNOD teases psychological thriller, Twin Mirror

The folks behind games like Remember Me, Vampyr and Life is Strange have revealed their next project, and it’s called Twin Mirror. Billed as being a psychological thriller, it will mark their first time self-publishing something.

Sam Higgs was done with Basswood, West Virginia, but it seems it wasn’t done with him. When the former investigative journalist returns to his hometown to say a final farewell to his best friend, it soon becomes clear that there are more chapters to be written in his troubled history.

Forced to confront his past, Sam finds himself torn between reconnecting with his loved ones and using his unique intellectual abilities to uncover the town’s dark secrets. But how do you know who to trust when you’re not even sure you can trust yourself?

As his investigation progresses, Sam will uncover a web of intrigue that winds through Basswood’s evocative locations and draws in its colorful residents. The same deductive reasoning and memory visualization skills that made Sam such an accomplished investigative journalist can help him untangle this mystery and unlock the truth buried deep within his unique mind.

Every decision, every interaction, every discovery will influence the direction of Sam’s investigation and ultimately determine how much of himself he’s willing to sacrifice. There are no right or wrong answers – Each player will live a truly unique experience tailored by their very own decisions.

Twin Mirror will be released as a full experience, meaning that it won’t be episodic like both Life is Strange and its sequel. The PC version of the game will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store for one year, while the Xbox One and PS4 versions will be distributed with help from BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment.

Expect to be able to play this title later this very year.
