Dontnod Entertainment has lifted the curtains on a new IP called Twin Mirror, a psychological thriller that has a distinct Alan Wake-y vibe to it.
Due out in 2019, Twin Mirror focuses on a 33-year-old chap named Sam, who returns home to Basswood, West Virginia for his best mate's funeral. He's also apparently suffering from a breakup, so the timing obviously really sucks.
Things don't appear to get much better for Sam, either. Already depressed and bitter, he wakes up in his hotel room sporting a bloody shirt and no recollection of where he had been the previous night.
Hungry for answers, Sam ventures off on a 'twisted investigation to find the truth.' Of course, this is a Dontnod game, so we're also promised the chance to make 'gut-wrenchingly impactful choices.'
As we said, it does have a very Alan Wake vibe going for it, which is certainly no bad thing.
'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,' commented Dontnod CEO, Oskar Guilbert.
'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.'
Twin Mirror is currently in development for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, and will be published by Bandai Namco Games; the publisher's first step into the 'narrative adventure' genre.
