Twin Mirror is a DONTNOD game alright. Soft colour palette? Check. Atrocious voice acting? Check. American characters written by French people? Check. Weird sci-fi elements? Check. If we hadn’t already seen the trailer to Life Is Strange 2, we’d be convinced this was the sequel instead – even if it is lacking in the teenager department.
This 10 minute demo essentially introduces the episodic adventure’s gameplay loop, which will see you toggling between the real-world and your Mind Palace, attempting to reconstruct memories. Gameplay-wise there’s nothing all that impressive going on here, but as is always the case with these types of titles, it’s the narrative that’s king.
