About: Twin Soul is a coop-survival horror video game that takes place in an distant and desolate town somewhere in Eastern Europe. Here two players have to join together and face frightful creatures and solve twisted puzzles to survive. The game raises a variety of social problems, the expression of which can be found in the appearance of monsters, the environment and the characters themselves.
The project is heavily inspired by Team Silent, H.R.Giger and David Lynch works. Creating real psychological horror experience is the primary mission of the project.

  • Photo-realistic graphics
  • Different types of enemies with unique combat features
  • Allusions to social problems
  • Post-Soviet setting
  • Cooperative puzzle solving
  • Decision making

Last news:

For those who weren’t monitoring our news we remind that Twin Soul is a cooperative indie game being developed by a small team.

First, we’ll demonstrate another content pack created for the project:

Content development is a very resource-intensive process which requires a lot of time. However we’ve already made most of the models needed for demo. Two more packs await us ahead along with graphics research (realtime mirrors, texture map optimization, dynamic light experiments etc).

Beside the content we’ve done a lot this half a year. Made first gameplay prototype and shot first couple of feet, launched our website twinsoulgame.com and finalized game world concept and its rules.
Most valuable is that we’ve developed basic AI system which descendants are going to be enemies and probably a bot as a teammate (for ones who enjoy playing alone).
It was very important to us to create an AI which would not just blindly rush to kill player, but have its own demands as the main motive of its behaviour. AI is exactly the core of our gameplay.

First enemy we’ll demonstrate will be the Child-Monster. It’s primary feature is partial blindness. It shall react to the light source: small one will annoy and even anger it, big one - easily scare away or be a safe spot for players. This enemy is an embodiment of drug addict children, Chernobyl victims and waifs - these problems are up-to-date even in modern world.
Although first monster incarnation wasn’t that good, more alien-like than real child:

That is why we’ve reworked concept:

Among other things we got protagonists models finally ready, they’ve made a long way starting with photogrammetry and ending up with retopology and polygonal hair creation. Therefore there’s lots of work to do on texture maps and materials, although that doesn’t interfere with our plans to begin animating main characters soon:

In spite of all forces concentrated on demo creation, which still is quite far from done, we do not forget to work on game-design and plot documents, thinking over mechanics and enemies. As an example, as soon as players shall learn how to confront children’s horde, smartly bypass them or lock them in the corner, they’ll face a new enemy - Lightman:

This creature isn’t afraid of light at all and even controls it, finds targets with its torch or uses specific projectors to locate children and players. And once safe light will become dangerous:

Though game isn’t being developed very fast, our Alchemilla experience proves that we aren’t afraid and don’t leave tough projects. But we have to ask our audience to help with PR. It will take you just a few minutes to share info about us with your friends who love horror games and films - that will be really helpful!

Kind of creepy, but I like it! Looking forward to more updates.

I love the atmosphere, really creepy!

USSR, really??? The stills look a bit like a student house I once lived in! :stuck_out_tongue:
Seriously the rundown setting looks the same as other survival games… :frowning:
But your team is talented and could create a new twist on the genre…

I love the colour palettes used and the high level of detail put into that kitchen - great work. The creature design is suitably disturbing; looking forward to seeing more!

excellent toilet!!! : D

Looks good!

Interesting choice of name - you may wish to look up what ‘two souled’ is generally used to refer to :wink:

Where are you from? Intresting to see photo of your student house.
In any case, we are in creative search. But for demo gameplay we are use the our home environment as a reference.

At the request of “two souled” Google provides “Beyond: Two Souls”.
But for “twin soul” Google provides Twin Soul game that change name for “Aragami – Control the Shadows”.

Coolest video i’ve seen today, thanks for this!

Subscribed, gg!

Yush, Yes and Si! Loooveing the detail. The monster concepts are awesomeness :smiley:

Yikes o_o

This is wonderfully creepy (if that’s a phrase? hahahah!). I love it! Keep up the great work!

Edit: P.S. - Just followed you on Twitter :smiley:

Hi WhiteNoiseTeam,

The Art style and work for Twin-Soul is fabulous. When I read the Title and read the summary for the Two-player Coop, I imagined it being a Horror Game in which Two Players control a Single Character to survive. Is this the case? If so, that could be very interesting mechanic, possible the define a new type of Cooperative gameplay.

you should really focus on the gameplay. there is nothing of it in the video. the video looks more like a ArchVis than a in-game footage.

No - two players control two characters, in this regard, a pretty off traditional. Much more important non-standard interaction with opponents, which requires the coordinated action of two players and a little ingenuity. The reference projects is Obscure, Residen Evil Revelation 2 from one side + Portal 2 coop from other side.

I understand that it is difficult to imagine that we are planning. So we are planning to demonstrate the basic Coop game-play as soon as possible. But our main game process (interaction with the enemies) will have to wait, because the AI ​​requires careful consideration.

Weekly update №2[HR][/HR]
We’ve created a Steam Concept page.
Now you can follow project development right on Steam, comment, add to favorites and leave your fingers to support us.

Our YouTube channel got new video, where you can watch new assets closer - looking forward to seeing your replies.

Basic inventory was created, again. Now some objects can be picked up by player for ever and ever.
Beside that, due to (not) many requests “1 minute client” bug was finally fixed - now player on the client side can stay in game as long as he wants.
