November 15, 2019. DONTNOD Entertainment, an independent French studio that creates and develops video games, is delighted to announce its first-ever collaboration with Microsoft for the development of its next original episodic game, Tell Me WhyTM.
This new IP published by Microsoft, known only as “Project 6” until its unveiling at Microsoft's X019 event in London, will be available on Xbox One, Windows 10 PC and Steam®, as well as with Xbox Game Pass.
Tell Me WhyTM takes place in a small-town Alaska, where players are immersed in a mystery revolving around the intimate story of twins Tyler and Alyson Ronan. The narrative builds on their remarkable bond, revealing memories of a loving but troubled childhood.
“The game's core focus is the special bond between Tyler and Alyson, a deeply ingrained aspect of the storytelling”, explained Florent Guillaume, Game Director for Tell Me WhyTM. “As the story unfolds, players delve into memories of pivotal events, as conveyed by Tyler and Alyson, and choose which memory to believe. Players' choices determine the strength of the twins' bond, and the course their lives will take.”
To ensure the narrative adventure game community and fans aren't left waiting, Tell Me WhyTM will be released in three chapters according to a schedule of regular release dates. The entire season will be available by summer 2020.
