Of Two Minds Brings Psychoanalyst FMV To iOS This Year
Burgeon & Flourish are taking on the FMV experience with a bit of psychology as Of Two Minds is coming to iOS.
There's a brand new psychoanalyst experience coming to iOS as Burgeon & Flourish will be releasing Of Two Minds sometime this year. This is a weird but interesting game as you'll be taken down a road of intersecting thoughts in the middle of a love triangle in the '80s. You'll have to explore interpersonal trauma through different aspects of these people's minds and personalities to unravel the story through deduction, acted out by the company of thespians who are telling you the tale of a failed relationship. The game has no official release date yet beyond the idea that it will be out sometime this year, but you can check out the trailer and info below as we wait for more info.
"Of Two Minds places you in the mindset of a psychoanalyst, diving into the psyche of a network of people (a couple having an affair, their spouses, and even their own analysts, one of whom goes broke while another marries the wrong person) in the gritty but vibrant New York of the late 80s. Every time you discover a new Memory, you will have to connect the topics and ideas — Themes — that appear in every video. Working with these Themes will unlock new videos, filling in the gaps in the story as so you get to know each character and their motivations. Your deductions and daring leaps of reason and creativity will help you dig deeper into their lives and minds."
