A psychological thriller, Twin Mirror follows ex-investigative journalist Sam Higgs as he returns home to Basswood, West Virginia to attend a friend’s funeral. Saying farewell to a lifelong friend isn’t the only challenge that awaits him, though. Sam will also have to confront his past, which won’t bode well for the secrets that Basswood keeps. With investigative skills at his disposal, Sam’s bound to expose whatever darkness lies just out of reach.
Though Dontnod originally planned to launch Twin Mirror episodically, this is no longer the case. The game will now release as one full package. A number of other changes have occurred in the years since Twin Mirror’s announcement, too. For example, Dontnod obtained the title’s IP rights. As a result, the company will at least publish the PC version. This past May saw Dontnod unveil a new studio based in Montréal that’s set to begin work on a new project. Whether the new game is an original IP or a sequel to an existing property currently remains under wraps.
