Twin Mirror gameplay detailed by DONTNOD, Bandai Namco

Twin Mirror gameplay was today detailed by DONTNOD and Bandai Namco.

“In Twin Mirror, players take on the role of Sam, an investigative journalist returning home to bury an old friend,” a press release states. “But, as Sam wakes up in his motel room with a blood-stained shirt and no memory of the night before…he must embark on a thrilling investigation and series of impactful choices to discover the truth.”

The first of three-part episodic game is called Lost On Arrival and is scheduled for 2019.

One of Sam’s talents is his Mind Palace, DONTNOD today detailed.

“While the untrained mind may forget crucial information, or fail to remember critical clues, Sam’s brain works differently,” the press release continues. “Over many years, Sam has trained to create his very own version of the Mind Palace – for him, a place to access at will and recreate memories from the past…or piece together possible scenarios. But even the greatest tools can get rusty if not properly trained, and players will have to start by jogging Sam’s capacity back again.”

Another skill is The Double, “another key feature” of Twin Mirror.

“Sam’s inner voice takes the form of a classy and sarcastic version of himself. Is he here to help? To hinder him? Players will have to discover his true meaning as they progress through the story, navigating choices between Sam’s personality and the Double’s quirky guidance.”

Take a look at Twin Mirror below. Its first episode, Lost On Arrival heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 in early 2019.
