The studio that brought us Life is Strange has just announced its next project: an entirely new game called Twin Mirror.
The narrative, story-driven adventure game follows protagonist Sam as he returns to the town of Basswood, West Virginia, the site of some bad memories. While recovering from a break-up and reflecting on the death of a friend that pulled him back to the town, Sam blacks out—and awakens to find his shirt covered in blood, and the view outside the window converted to a twisted, ethereal version of itself. With no memory of the previous night, Sam sets out to try and remember what happened, investigate the death of his friend, and figure out what’s going on in this trippy version of Basswood.
“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,” Dontnod CEO Oskar Guilbert said in a press release. “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.”
Twin Mirror is currently in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, and is set to release in 2019.
