Gamers around the world enjoyed Life is Strange, DONTNOD Entertainment’s game about the story of Max, a photography student who suddenly discovers she has the power to go back in time. She uses this supernatural talent to save Chloe, her childhood friend, from certain death.
Today DONTNOD announced a completely new narrative driven game set in a mysterious West Virginia town called Basswood. Twin Mirror will be a psychological thriller where the player’s choices shape protagonist Sam’s search for the truth.
“Now more than ever, gamers are seeking out narrative journeys that not only progress the story in a particular direction but force them to make difficult moral decisions that impact the outcome in real, dramatic ways.” said Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc.
Players will assume the role of Sam, a 33-year-old investigative journalist who suffered a harsh breakup he’s desperately trying to overcome, 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 MirrorTM offers the ability to dive into Samuel’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.
“Twin MirrorTM is our first entry into the world of Narrative adventures, and by partnering with the creative artists at DONTNOD, we are working to create a title that not only meets and exceed the high standard they’ve set but forms the foundation for new and compelling narrative adventures in the years to come.” Adds Hervé Hoerdt, Vice President of Marketing & Digital at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe.
