Twin Mirror is now available on Steam

Avatar

We are excited to announce the Steam release of our psychological thriller, Twin Mirror. The game is now available on Steam with a 50% launch discount and will introduce a brand-new set of players to the gripping story of Sam Higgs and his quest for the truth.

Free demo

We invite players to start their adventure in Basswood by playing the free demo of the game, which is ready to download now from the Steam store page. Game progress and any achievements unlocked will be saved and carried over to the game if players choose to purchase it afterwards. Interested players should be mindful that the demo is available for a short time. However, the demo can still be played even after it has been removed from the store if it has been downloaded.

The story

Sam Higgs left his hometown, and everyone he knows, behind two years ago. The death of his best friend Nick calls him back to confront the town’s troubled past—and his own. He soon becomes drawn into a dangerous web of intrigue as all is not as it seems in the small town of Basswood, West Virginia.

Forced to face himself and the townsfolk, ex-investigative journalist Sam struggles to balance the scales of reconciliation and his life-changing investigation. He must decide how much he’s willing to risk to uncover the mysteries of his hometown.

The Twin Mirror

Sam has a Mind Palace, an expansive and unique part of his mind where he can revisit his past, relive old memories, and reconstruct events to gather clues and predict the story’s key turning points. His analytical and logical mind can often lead to awkward interactions and unintentional hurt.

This is where Sam’s Double comes in: it is the more social and empathetic side of himself that only he can see. This ally guides Sam through social interactions and helps him navigate a society that sometimes rejects singularity. Through these human qualities, the Double can offer Sam an alternative when he needs to make important decisions.

Will you find the truth – no matter the cost?

Every decision, every interaction, and every discovery will influence the direction of Sam’s investigation and will ultimately determine how much of himself he’s willing to sacrifice. There are no right or wrong answers – each player will live a truly unique experience tailored by their very own decisions.

 

The evocative soundtrack of Twin Mirror is also available for digital purchase on various online music streaming services, gathered here.

Along with Steam, Twin Mirror is available on the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game is also compatible with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.

DONTNOD embraces flexible working modes!

FROG

DONTNODians can now choose between working from home and working in an office in a new permanent work organization called FROG (Fully Remote Organization). Voted on in October 2020, 87% of employees were in favor and all now enjoy the benefits of working from their home if they choose. This system will remain in place past the pandemic with the aim of bettering work-life balance and providing more flexibility in work organization. 

We want to empower all team members to work in the best possible conditions for them, so all DONTNODians can choose between Remote Mode and Office Mode, with the option to revise their decision later. Remote Mode lets staff work from the comfort of their own homes with all the equipment and furniture they need, all provided by DONTNOD. Office Mode means working from the premises with a dedicated setup and desk. Because maintaining a social link with colleagues is important to us, both modes offer great flexibility. Teleworkers can choose to visit the office regularly and use “flex” desks, and office workers have a package of remote days. 

Implementing FROG means the talent pool has widened significantly with colleagues able to live anywhere in France with the Paris office, or Quebec with the Montreal office. This means great things for our recruitment efforts, and we’re thrilled to be able to welcome the best of the best to DONTNOD. Take a look at our current open roles here! 

 

New offices in Paris and Montreal 

The Paris office has relocated to the Parc Icade du Pont de Flandre and boasts on-site green spaces, restaurants, a fitness center, and more. It has been renovated with space and adaptable working conditions in mind so we can keep up with the changing health and safety recommendations. Features include flex desks, ‘bubbles’ for isolation and concentration, connected meeting rooms, and more. 

In Montreal, DONTNOD has a new office within Fabrik8, at the heart of the Mile-Ex neighborhood. Our employees enjoy working in a vibrant environment that offers many perks such as a gym, a cafeteria that serves gourmet, healthy meals, as well as an ice rink which turns into a soccer pitch and basketball court in the warmer months. 

To stay safe, only a limited number of employees are currently able to visit the offices at one time. A voluntary gradual return to the workplace is underway.

DONTNOD will publish PortaPlay’s next game !

Avatar

We are very happy to announce our collaboration with PortaPlay’s on an upcoming co-production!

 

Based in Copenhagen, PortaPlay studio is composed of an experienced team of about ten people. PortaPlay is currently developing an original creation, which is in line with the editorial vision and values of DONTNOD. 

This future game will be the first title published by DONTNOD while developed by an external studio. As part of this partnership, DONTNOD will provide PortaPlay with its knowledge and experience acquired from previous titles, in order to support this future creation. 

Xavier Spinat, Head of Publishing at DONTNOD, said: « As a publisher, we want to offer players experiences that are both accessible to the wider audience, while setting the bar high regarding themes and quality of design. From our first discussions with PortaPlay, it became clear to us that co-producing and publishing this original creation would allow us to expand our portfolio with a game complementary to our in-house productions, while remaining true to our DNA. We will be able to bring to our partner with our know-how and our knowledge of the market, in line with our communities’ expectations. »

Hans von Knut Skovfoged, Head of Development at PortaPlay, said: « We feel called to work on games with meaning. Games combining solid game mechanics and storytelling – about individuals in crisis situations tackling moral dilemmas. This new partnership is thus a great opportunity to us. Not only does it give us the opportunity to communicate with all the fans of DONTNOD’s fantastic catalogue of games, but it also allows us to work with some of the best minds in this field – to help us improve our game and give the players the greatest experience possible! »

 

We can’t wait to reveal more about this upcoming game soon!

Twin Mirror NOW available on PC (Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4 and Xbox One!

We’re delighted to announce the release of Twin Mirror, our new narrative adventure on PC (Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4 (PlayStation Store), and Xbox One (Microsoft Store). In this psychological thriller, gamers are invited to the town of Basswood (West Virginia) to follow Sam Higgs in his quest for truth. 

 

To celebrate the launch of this new game, we’re really happy to share a launch trailer. 

 

Following the tragic death of his best friend, Sam Higgs decides to pay him one last tribute and comes back to Basswood, his childhood town. It quickly becomes obvious that this little West Virginian city holds numerous dark secrets. The former investigative journalist employs his unique deductive skills to uncover the mysteries surrounding the city and its inhabitants. Confronted with his past, Sam is torn between his quest for truth and his desire to reconnect with his loved ones. Who can he really trust? 

Sam’s unique analytical skills allow the player, through a Mind Palace, to relive his memories during flashback sequences, study the environment and gather clues allowing the simulation of multiple scenarios to deduct the course of events or predict the story’s key turning points. However, this particular trait can lead Sam to cut himself from the world and, sometimes hurt those around him. 

That’s when the Double comes into play, a character only Sam can see. The Double is a representation of himself more emphatic and social. Sam can always rely on this ally to guide him through social interactions and navigate a society that sometimes rejects singularity. Through these human qualities, the Double can offer Sam an alternative when he needs to make important decisions. 

Every decision, every interaction, and every discovery will influence the direction of Sam’s investigation and will ultimately determine how much of himself he’s willing to sacrifice. There are no right or wrong answers – each player will live a truly unique experience tailored by their very own decisions.
 

Twin Mirror is now available on PlayStation 4 (PlayStation Store), Xbox One (Microsoft Store), and PC. The digital PC version is exclusively available on the Epic Games Store for one year starting today. 

Twin Mirror is compatible with PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S.
