Quantic Dream Discusses How Games and Film Meet in Beyond: Two Souls Panel

on September 25, 2013 7:04 AM

Quantic Dream is incredibly well-known for their stylistic and cinematic gameplay experiences, especially with the heavily film noir-influenced tone of Heavy Rain, that help them create unique interactive narratives through games.

Beyond: Two Souls looks to both continue and develop those ideas as the next project from Quantic Dream, and earlier this week Sony hosted a panel on the game with two of its creative team, David Cage (Game Director) and Suzanne Goddard-Smythe (Casting Director), talking about the game’s focus on narrative and its place in the “rise of interactive drama.” The panel also features a host of guests alongside Cage and Goddard-Smythe that also offer their takes on Beyond: Two Souls and the increasing merge between games and film, such as Robert Carlton, a writer and actor in Australia, and director Nicholas Clifford.

Sony has released a video of the entire panel today, which you can take a look at below for more on David Cage’s next big project with Quantic Dream.

Beyond: Two Souls releases exclusively for PS3 on October 8th, 2013.
