The Twin Mirror follows the story of former investigative journalist Sam Higgs, who returns to his hometown of Baswood, West Virginia for a funeral. What was supposed to be a short visit soon turned into a long stay. Sam is involved in a mystery and must use his investigative skills to find out exactly what happened. The trailer doesn’t give much away, but it irritates Smart Palace, a place that exists in Sam’s mind where he can review and recall key events to find out what happened.
If you are not a fan of episodic games, then you are in luck. Unlike Life is Strange and Tell Me Why, Twin Mirror will be available as a full day experience. As early as June, Dontnod said he had redesigned the game to “allow players to enjoy this psychological thriller without interruption.”
Twin Mirror launches on Xbox One on December 1st.
