WHAT: BEYOND: Two Souls / The Game
RELEASE DATE: 2013
BEYOND: Two Souls is the new creation from Quantic Dream and it will be a hit for sure when it comes out next year. David Cage, Heavy Rain’s infamous scriptwriter, is the mind behind this new exclusive project for the Playstation 3 that has Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe as protagonists alongside others famous actors yet to be reveal.
Lately, the thin line between reality and this virtual world, created by these game developers for the new game consoles, is thinner than ever before. Games nowadays are offering more than simple puzzles and mere fun to its players.
Gamers can now choose from a wide selection of titles that are way more mature than Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt; these new offerings are more an interactive movie than a game (it reminds me a lot of Phantasmagoria and the Full Motion Video Trend used in the early 90′s), they’re an experience.
BEYOND follows the tale of a girl who seems to have psychic powers (a la Carrie) that is being persecuted by every single police officer in town. If you liked Heavy Rain this is a no brainer. Click on the video above and wash your eyes with this little taste of virtual reality.
