“In line with our development strategy and thanks to our partnership with Epic Games, Dontnod now majority holds an additional key asset.

The game follows the story of Sam, who returns to his hometown of Basswood, West Virginia, for the funeral of his best friend. Things are going fine until he wakes up in his hotel room with a bloody shirt and no memory of what happened. Sam must now attempt to piece together what happened with the help of his inner voice called The Double.
Twin Mirror is in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
