Quantic Dream Goes Beyond
The much-discussed new game by Quantic Dream and David Cage was finally revealed at Sony's E3 press conference today. It's titled Beyond, and has the player stepping into the shoes of Jody Holmes, a character with mysterious powers that connect her to the afterlife. The game will take place over fifteen years of Jody's life, allowing the player to she how she grows and learns to cope with being different.
The big news attached to this reveal is that Jody Holmes will be played by Ellen Page. In fact, the character herself looks quite a bit like Page, enough to feel a bit uncanny. Anybody worried that this game will be full of crystal-gazing and whispering to long-dead relatives should feel reassured by the trailer, which involved Ms. Holmes being chased by a SWAT team and blowing up cars.
