Investigative reporter Sam Higgs goes back to his home town and becomes entangled in a dark mystery he must solve
The grizzled journalist returning to their rural home town and becoming enmeshed in a dark mystery is a familiar theme in thriller movies and novels. Twin Mirror – equal parts psychological mystery thriller and narrative adventure – is a compelling interactive take on the genre.
Playing as investigative reporter Sam Higgs, you go back to Basswood, West Virginia, where you’re not exactly popular with the locals, and end up having to untangle the town’s secrets. As well as finding and analysing clues, you’re also in control of how Sam interacts with other people through a range of dialogue choices.
