Wow, just wow… The team that brought you Heavy Rain (developer Quantic Dream, who brought you the eye-popping demo: KARA, that I blogged about a while ago), brings this new PS3 exclusive game starring Oscar-nominated Ellen Page (of Inception and Juno).
- The game is centered around questions about what happens after death. It lets the player take Jodie Holmes through 15 years of her life on a journey to discover what is the true meaning of a ghost-like entity that’s alongside her throughout the story.
- This supernatural element will empower Jodie with various abilties. The video shows that these abilities could include possession, the ability to light people in a mystical fire and some kind of protective shield.
- The game features a dark graphical style, similar feel to Heavy Rain.
Heavy Rain was awesome, Quantic Dream is awesome. All signs point to the fact that Beyond will be an improvement of Heavy Rain. I can’t wait for this game to come out!

This is the making of the breathlessly beautiful video of “KARA“, a PS3 tech demo / mini sci-fi film, that I blogged about here (make sure you watch this first before you watch the video below). You will be shocked at the uncanny resemblance of the artificially created Kara versus the actress Valorie Curry! Hurry! And watch this:
So do you think Quantic Dream will develop this into a game? After all, they did create the critically acclaimed “Heavy Rain” game on the PS3. What do you think?

The team that brought you “Heavy Rain” to the PS3, Quantic Dream, released this absolutely JAW-DROPPING tech demo on 03/08/2012 at the 2012 Game Developers Conference. It’s actually a 7- minute mini sci-fi movie. You will be amazed! (tip: switch to 720p HD and full screen!)
The voice actress and character model is Valorie Curry (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2).

You’ll want to watch this more than once.
