“In Tell Me Why, memories are not only a key part of Tyler and Alyson’s journey – they’re also a major gameplay mechanic,” says Dontnod.

“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 split into three chapters and each will release a week apart, from August 27.
