Life is Strange developer Dontnod has announced the delay of their psychedelic adventure game Twin Mirror. According to a dev post on the official Facebook page, the new release mirror for the game is sometime in 2020 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.. Furthermore, Twin Mirros will be an Epic Games Store exclusive for one year on PC.
Dontnod really stole the spotlight among small game studio’s during 2015 with the studio’s smash hit Life is Strange. The mix of deep narrative, interesting gameplay mechanic and great writing with relatable characters catapulted the small French developer onto the stratosphere. Their follow-up Vampyr didn’t really manage to achieve the same amount of success but is still a great game nonetheless. But being a more action-oriented title, it probably missed the mark at the studio’s fans.

Aiding him on his journey is his alter ego Double who gives him advice and Sam’s special skill of memory visualization. Make sure to watch the new gameplay trailer to see all this in action.
