Heavy Rain Creator Inducted Into Order Founded by Napoleon

Here's something odd: David Cage, the maker of Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain, now has something in common with Marcel Marceau, Jacques Cousteau and Alexis de Tocqueville: all are members of France's Legion d'honneur, an award akin to being knighted in the United Kingdom. » 2/17/14 11:06am 2/17/14 11:06am

Some Of The World's Best Cartoons Are Hidden Inside Video Games

Quantic Dream, the studio behind Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, are about as polarising as a developer gets. Some people hate their games. Some people love them! I'd like to think there's one aspect of their output we can all get behind, though: the way they include some of the world's best animation shorts in… » 10/21/13 11:00pm 10/21/13 11:00pm

The Video Game That Began With...Pictures Of Ellen Page


It began with an idea. David Cage sits at his desk, but he can’t write. He looks for an image. He can’t remember the words he types into the search engine but, before he knows it, on his screen, a photograph of the actress Ellen Page. A funeral, a single idea and pictures of Ellen Page. “This,” says David Cage, “is… » 10/03/13 2:00am 10/03/13 2:00am

Beyond: Two Souls Is (Slightly) Censored For Europe

Beyond: Two Souls Looks Very, Very Sad

Which shouldn't surprise you. It's not like Indigo Prophecy and Heavy Rain were a laugh-a-minute. But there's something all this concept art from the game that just bums me out. » 9/10/13 1:00am 9/10/13 1:00am

Wait, Is Beyond: Two Souls A Metal Gear Game Now?

The video above was shown yesterday during Sony's E3 conference. It is of a game that, until now, we'd thought was about a young woman growing up with weird powers, working her way through a story featuring lots of rain, and emotions. » 6/11/13 9:00pm 6/11/13 9:00pm

Heavy Rain Creator: ‘The Only Thing I Didn’t Want to Do Was a Sequel’

Heavy Rain got some criticism. There are whole train of thoughts that either praise or slam Quantic Dream’s experimental PS3 game. Some people love what it tried to do in terms of how play mechanics and plot continuation when certain characters died. Other players hated the way it tried to tell its story.

Beyond: Two Souls Wants You to Know It's a Film with Exclusive DLC

Beyond: Two Souls, the PS3 exclusive game coming from Quantic Dream was an official selection at the Tribeca Film Festival this weekend, and presented this, its official trailer.

This Video Game Script Is Beyond Ridiculous

CNET editor Dan Ackerman shared this picture of the Beyond: Two Souls script today. It's 2,000 blank pages. The representation of the conglomeration of all the spoken dialogue for Quantic Dream’s upcoming playable drama looks bigger than a stack of PS3s. And not the new Super Slim PS3s. I’m talking the original husky… » 4/23/13 3:00pm 4/23/13 3:00pm

Here's One Big-Budget Game That Won't Have A Gun-Toting Character On…

If it's a big-budget game, you can (cynically) count on at least one thing: a stoic-looking guy incorrectly holding a gun on the cover. It's a trend in the same way blue-orange movie covers are a trend. Covers rarely break that mold, but according to Gamespot, Quantic Dream is doing it with Beyond: Two Souls.

Beyond: Two Souls Is Coming October 8th, Just Got Dafoe'd

Sony has just revealed that Beyond: Two Souls will be bringing its innumerable polygons to PS3 on October 8th. The announcement eschews any mention of PS4, but does have some extra flavor. Dafoe flavor. Yes, the rumor that Willem Dafoe is part of Quantic Dream's ambitious title is true, despite David Cage's denial of… » 3/01/13 12:00pm 3/01/13 12:00pm
