Dontnod Entertainment has released the official teaser trailer and new screenshots for Twin Mirror, its upcoming narrative video game due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store in 2020.

Here are the latest details on the game, via Dontnod Entertainment:
Building on its partnership with Epic Games for the distribution of Twin Mirror, Dontnod Entertainment was able to become a publisher for the first time and extend the development of this title. This extra time will allow the team to better realize their creative vision. In parallel, the studio has also surrounded itself with a co-producer on the title, Shibuya Productions. To further meet the expectations of the community and fans of narrative adventure games, the experience has been completely redesigned to allow players to enjoy this psychological thriller without interruption. Originally planned as an episodic game, Twin Mirror™ will be released in a single full experience in 2020.

Sam Higgs was done with Basswood, West Virginia, but it seems it wasn’t done with him. When the former investigative journalist returns to his hometown to say a final farewell to his best friend, it soon becomes clear that there are more chapters to be written in his troubled history.

Forced to confront his past, Sam finds himself torn between reconnecting with his loved ones and using his unique intellectual abilities to uncover the town’s dark secrets. But how do you know who to trust when you’re not even sure you can trust yourself?

As his investigation progresses, Sam will uncover a web of intrigue that winds through Basswood’s evocative locations and draws in its colorful residents. The same deductive reasoning and memory visualization skills that made Sam such an accomplished investigative journalist can help him untangle this mystery and unlock the truth buried deep within his unique mind.

Every decision, every interaction, every discovery will influence the direction of Sam’s investigation and ultimately determine how much of himself he’s willing to sacrifice. There are no right or wrong answers – Each player will live a truly unique experience tailored by their very own decisions.

Twin Mirror™ is the first title self-published by Dontnod Entertainment and co-produced with Shibuya Productions. The digital PC version of the game will be exclusively available on the Epic Games Store for one year. For the console version of the game, Dontnod Entertainment is once again partnering with Bandai Namco Entertainment, in charge of distributing the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Nice, the trend of episodic adventure games is something I could easily do without. Glad they're making this a single continuous experience.

They were the thing for a while but looks like episodic games are dying out. Anyway glad this isn't one of those anymore.

A lot of new previews dropping today from a 20 minute demo DontNod's been shopping around. Seems promising.

I wanted to get it, but the reviews turned me off to it. Let me know what you think when you complete it, minus spoilers of course, lol.

Just finished it now. It was.. ok. If your after a lesser season of a Tell Tale/Life is Strange game this will hit the right spots. The start is really weak but the last third is a lot stronger. I'd give it a 5/10. Definition of average but passes the time in a Netflix kind of way.

Thanks for letting me know! I'll keep my eye out for a sale.
