Bandai Namco announced today that the psychological thriller Twin Mirror will make its way to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Created by the same studio behind Life is Strange, it is a player-driven experience featuring a malleable narrative. Twin Mirror chronicles the journey of a tormented hero who must walk a tightrope between the harsh realities of Basswood, West Virginia and its dark secrets, and his own personal struggle.
The game stars Sam, a 33-year-old investigative journalist who suffered a harsh breakup and is returning home to bury an old friend. He wakes up one morning in his motel room with a bloody shirt and no memories of his whereabouts from the previous night, and sets out on an investigation to find the truth, with his mind as his only weapon. Players can dive into Sam’s memories to shape the investigation through a series of tough choices, each bringing the player one step closer to discovering the truth and Sam’s place in the world.
According to Oskar Guilbert, CEO for DONTNOD:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“TWIN MIRROR is a game heavily rooted in the concept of duality, redemption and self-acceptance and is on track to deliver a stunning emotional journey. While we were scripting the player’s investigations within the game, we suddenly found ourselves researching just how far the limits of the Narrative Adventure genre could be pushed in the real world. When the dust settled, all evidence pointed towards TWIN MIRROR being a genre-re-defining experience. Now, we can’t wait to see how the players react when all the pieces of their investigation fall into place within the game.”[/testimonials]
