One of Dontnod’s upcoming titles, Twin Mirror, was unveiled shortly before E3. Today, over a month after its initial announced, the developers and publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment released the first production vlog for the title.
This video prominently features Oskar Guilbert, CEO of Dontnod Entertainment, who mainly gives a bit of background information Twin Mirror. The game follows the story of Sam, who returns to his hometown for a friend’s funeral which kicks off a spiral of odd and crazy events. According to the video, Dontnod came up with initial idea for this darker kind of game a few years ago, and have been working on it since.
Twin Mirror is largely a narrative focused game, with the story melding itself around the players dialogue choices and how they interact with the game’s environment. Oskar even went as far as to say that “the game is a mirror of the player’s personality.” While he doesn’t go in depth about the gameplay in this video, he does tease the investigative portion of the game that will end up weaving itself into the Twin Mirror’s themes and story.
Check out the game’s first production vlog below. Twin Mirror is currently poised to release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime in 2019. That being said, 2018 is not a down year for Dontnod; they have already released Vampyr and The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, and will release the first episode of Life is Strange 2 in September.
