Earlier today, Bandai Namco and DONTNOD officially announced that Twin Mirror would be coming out in 2019 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. BN is boasting that this is their first venture into narrative adventure games, as the player-driven story will follow a journalist named Sam in West Virginia. Below is a complete description and official trailer for the game as we’re hoping to see more of it at E3 next week.
“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” said Oskar Guilbert, DONTNOD’s CEO. “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 stunning emotional journey. Now, we can’t wait to see how the players react when all the pieces of their investigation fall into place within the game.”
Players will assume the role of Sam, a 33-year-old investigative journalist who suffered a harsh breakup he’s desperately trying to overcome and is returning home to bury an old friend. As Sam wakes up one morning in his motel room with a bloody shirt and no memories of his whereabouts the previous night, he embarks on a thrilling investigation to find the truth, with his mind as his only weapon. Twin Mirror offers the ability to dive into Sam’s painful memories to personally and uniquely shape the investigation through a series of gut-wrenchingly impactful choices, each bringing the player one step closer to discovering both the truth, and their place in the world.
