Mirrors stars David, singer in famous rock band Elleno Vision, who is haunted by nightmares in which he is chased and killed. After waking from one of these nightmares he discovers that the band's manager has been murdered.
The game's strongest point is its atmosphere, CD audio music, eerie photo-like graphics, and fascinating story. The game is played in first-person view and is similar to a novel, allowing the player to choose from different actions from a menu. Like many Japanese adventure games of the time, Mirrors features a branching storyline and different endings based on the player's decisions.
The CD audio soundtrack covers several musical genres, ranging from ambient music to techno music.
