Twin Mirror Developer Diary Explores the Rust Belt Town of Basswood

By Sam Quirke, 12 days ago
Twin Mirror is the latest narrative adventure from Life Is Strange developers DONTNOD Entertainment. We've recently heard that the game will feature three episodes and has a Sherlock Holmes-esque "mind palace" feature, albeit with a more supernatural twist. In this new developer diary, the team discuss the basics of this investigative thriller and the town it takes place in.



The developers describe the game as a "noir" detective thriller that takes place in a modern-day rust-belt Virginian town, bereft of the industries that made it a successful place to live and now suffering in lean times. The hero Sam is an archetypal conflicted noir protagonist, a detective embroiled in a dark and twisting mystery that is somewhat of his own making.

The first of Twin Mirror's three episodes, "Lost on Arrival", is currently only broadly scheduled for a 2019 release on PlayStation 4.

We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Twin Mirror trophies.
