Dontnod, the studio that made the Life is Strange series, showed off a new cinematic trailer for their upcoming game Twin Mirror during the PC Gaming Show today.
In the game, you play as Sam Higgins, an investigative journalist. He's recently returned to his hometown of Basswood, West Virginia, after a recent breakup and to attend the funeral of a friend. Obviously in a depressed state, things begin to get weirder for him.
Basswood is usually a peaceful town, but now things seem off - at least for Sam. During his stay he checks into a hotel, and one morning. after waking up with a bloodied shirt and no memory of how it go that way, heads out on an investigation. This entails plenty of psychological horror and suspense to do with his past, his sense of self, and the life struggles he has recently passed through.
The trailer also showed off more of Sam's "sidekick" in the game - his projected alter ego. Apparently, the two will interact somewhat in Sam's detective investigations. The relationships Sam forms with other town residents will be very important in the way the investigation plays out.
Twin Mirror will be coming to the Xbox One and PS4, and to the PC with a timed-exclusive release on the Epic Games Store.

If you're unfamiliar with Life is Strange, it was a narrative and choice-driven, episodic game series that Dontnod worked on previously. Check out TechRaptor's review of the third episode in the sequel series and the overall reception the sequel received.
