'Twin Mirror' (ALL) No Longer Episodic, Epic Games Store Exclusivity - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on June 14, 2020 @ 12:35 a.m. PDT

Twin Mirror showcases a player-driven psychological thriller featuring a malleable narrative that chronicles the journey of a tormented hero who must walk a tightrope between the harsh realities of the film noir-esque Basswood, West Virginia, and his own personal struggle.

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.


Building on its partnership with Epic Games for the distribution of Twin Mirror, DONTOD 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.

For the console version of the game, DONTNOD is once again partnering with Bandai Namco Entertainment, in charge of distributing the game on PS4 and Xbox One.

Twin Mirror will release for PS4, Xbox One and PC (Epic Games Store) in 2020.
