Developer Dontnod Entertainment (Remember Me, Vampyr) and Xbox Game Studios premiered a new trailer for their upcoming game Tell Me Why at the Xbox Games Showcase on Friday and revealed the first chapter of the title would be releasing in August. The remaining chapters of the game will launch a week apart, resulting in one on September 3rd and another on September 10th. Xbox Wire talks more about the title below:
Tell Me Why is the story of two twins, Alyson and Tyler Ronan, who reunite for the first time in ten years after their mother’s death. Upon returning to their childhood home in rural Alaska, the Ronans realize that their shared past may not be as they remember it.
In the game, memories are not only a key part of Tyler and Alyson’s journey – they’re also a major gameplay mechanic. Players will use the twins’ supernatural Bond as one of many ways to find out the truth of the events surrounding their mother’s death. The choices the player makes with the Bond will influence Tyler and Alyson’s relationship for better or for worse, as well as alter the course of the game through branching dialogue and dramatic actions.
Tell Me Why is a true-to-life experience with strong characters and gripping themes. Dontnod Entertainment and Xbox Game Studios conducted on-the-ground research and partnered closely with cultural, mental health and transgender advocates to ensure that Tell Me Why is truly representative of the identities it represents.
Tell Me Why will be available for Xbox One, PC, and Xbox Game Pass.
