Description

Evil Twin: Cyprien's Chronicles is a surrealistic 3D platformer from France. The player guides the orphan boy Cyprien through a darkly comical environment spanning 8 distinct islands and about 70 stages, in a mission to save his 4 friends, find his talking teddy bear, and confront his inner self.

Cyprien is helped and hindered through his quest by an assortment of strange beings, from an elephant named Wilbur, who makes his entrances and exits on a swing, a tribe of demis - creatures cut in half, a giant termite queen, a dark root, and many many more.

He is not helpless in his battle against the odds however. He has brought along to this strange dimension Super-Cyp, his heroic alter ego, into whom he may change temporarily using the power-ups scattered around the levels.

Trivia

Introduction

When you have installed the Windows version of the game, look on your hard disk in the directory ...\Evil Twin\cines\voices_en for the sound file 03712010123.mp3 which is not used in the game. It has Lenny the Bear telling the background story of the game which is identical to the introduction text in the instruction manual.
