Not a lot has been revealed about the upcoming psychological thriller Twin Mirror since its initial announcement. Bandai Namco has now revealed two gameplay elements that are key to the title.
In his job as an investigative journalist, the story's protagonist, Sam, has developed a special technique that helps him solve the mysteries. Whilst most people may forget crucial clues, Sam is able to recall and recreate memories using his Mind Palace technique. However, this is not a simple gift, it needs to be trained by the player. Keeping this sharp, Sam will be able to recreate forgotten or hidden events by combining real world clues and visiting his Mind Palace.
Along with this, a second mechanic comes into play, The Double. Effectively, this is Sam's inner voice, a sarcastic version of himself, but just as in real life, it's not always clear if it is there to hinder or help. It's down to the play to discover the truth and attempt to unravel the mysterious narrative.
To give an idea of how this all looks in-game, the publisher has also provided a number of new screenshots showing the Mind Palace and The Double in action.
Finally, Bandai Namco have confirmed that the title will be an episodic game consisting of three parts, the first of which is entitled "Lost On Arrival".
The first episode of Twin Mirror will be arriving on the Xbox One sometime in the early part of 2019.
We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Twin Mirror achievements.
