The psychological thriller will be the first game self-published by DONTNOD and is coming out later this year on PC, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One™.
DONTNOD Entertainment is delighted to unveil a new teaser for its narrative video game Twin Mirror™. Premiering exclusively during the PC Gaming Show, this teaser features the complex character of Sam Higgs in a new adventure from the DONTNOD studio, renowned for its multiple award-winning series Life is Strange™.
Building on its partnership with Epic Games for the distribution of Twin Mirror™, DONTNOD was able to become a publisher for the first time and extend the development of this title. This extra time will allow the team to better realize their creative vision. 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. 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 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™ is the first title self-published by DONTNOD and co-produced with Shibuya Productions. The digital PC version of the game will be exclusively available on the Epic Games Store for one year. For the console version of the game, DONTNOD is once again partnering with BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment, in charge of distributing the game on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One™.
Twin Mirror™ will release this year on PlayStation®4, Xbox One™ and PC. The digital PC version will be exclusively available on the Epic Games Store for one year.
