You know Dontnod, right? They developed Life is Strange, the angst-ridden teen paranormal narrative adventure, and it’s a bit good. Now they’ve announced their next game: a psychological thriller narrative adventure, called Twin Mirror.
There seems to be a bit of a rush – whether it’s in answer to leaks, or by design – to rush out releases prior to the E3 madness, which kicks off tomorrow with EA Play, with a bunch of conferences over the weekend, and then the event proper on Tuesday.
Bandai Namco and Dontnod are the latest to produce a pre-E3 announcement, with their new narrative thriller, Twin Mirror.
“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 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.” – Oskar Guilbert, CEO, Dontnod
Twin Mirror casts you in the role of Sam, a 33-year old investigative journalist struggling with a difficult breakup. He returns to his hometown, then wakes up the following morning with a shirt drenched in blood, and the secrets to what happened the night before? They’re buried in his head, and you’re going to have to burrow around into his surreal subconscious to find the answers.
It certainly looks like an intriguing prospect, and it’s another game we’re now looking forward to seeing at this year’s E3.
Twin Mirror is slated to release in 2019, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
