Beyond: Two Souls’ Story Inspired By Loss Of A Family Member



Heavy Rain developer, Quantic Dream, are developing a game called Beyond: Two Souls for the PlayStation 3. Beyond: Two Souls puts you in the shoes of a character named Jodie Holmes, and her partner character, a mysterious invisible entity. The theme of the game is about what happens after death.


At the San Diego Comic-Con, Quantic Dream held a Beyond: Two Souls panel where director, David Cage, discussed the game, whether he sees himself as a game-maker or a film-maker, how he goes about development and more. When asked by a fan, Cage reveals that¬†Beyond: Two Souls’ story was inspired by the the experience of losing a family member close to him.


You can watch a recording of the panel above. Beyond: Two Souls will be released in 2013 for the PlayStation 3.
