After wowing the gaming masses with Life is Strange and Life is Strange 2, DONTNOD Entertainment are back with a new tease of its psychological thriller that will release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC later this year – Twin Mirror.
First announced way back in 2018, the teaser has been unveiled exclusively during the PC Gaming Show, as DONTNOD Entertainment’s narrative video game Twin Mirror prepares to feature the complex character of Sam Higgs.
Building on its partnership with Epic Games for the distribution of Twin Mirror, this will be DONTNOD’s first self-published title, allowing the team to better realise their creative vision in the process. In parallel, the studio has also surrounded itself with a co-producer on the title, Shibuya Productions. To further meet the expectations of the community and fans of narrative adventure games, the experience has been completely redesigned to allow players to enjoy this psychological thriller without interruption. And whilst it was originally planned as an episodic game, Twin Mirror will be released in a single full experience in 2020.
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 colourful residents. The same deductive reasoning and memory visualisation 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.
We’ll be sure to continue to bring you further Twin Mirror development news as and when we have it. For now, kick back and take in that teaser trailer below, before holding out for launch on Xbox One, PS4 and the Epic Games Store (where it’ll be exclusively available on PC for one year) later this year.
