David Cage’s IPs Indigo Prophecy and Heavy Rain are probably the furthest games from actual games. Personally I consider them a form of interactive media, but essentially there is more story than there is gameplay. As Comic Con is in full-swing, there was a recent panel regarding Beyond: Two Souls, its creator David Cage, and the protagonist as portrayed by Ellen Page of Inception fame. While the panel mostly discussed how the team came together, there were a few details revealed about the actual gameplay elements behind the game.
The story will follow Page’s character Jodie and a ghost named Aiden. Aiden has been with Jodie for a long time and will possess her and the people around her. Aiden’s form also affords him the ability to walk through walls and uniquely interact with the environment. There will of course be various decisions that affect the outcome of various scenarios, including one scenario where Jodie pilots a submarine. While the gameplay is described as “fully interactive” I still don’t hear anything that makes this sound like more than a series of QTEs, but I guess we will have to wait and see. Are any g1s looking forward to this?
