Heavy Rain Trailer

I must thank Deitrix for putting me on to this, a quite unique piece of animation from French developer Quantic Dream (the team behind Indigo Prophecy) part of a demo from an upcoming next gen release called Heavy Rain.

Called "The Casting", this video demo features a young actress attending a casting for the game. "The Casting" features many Next Gen advances including full body and facial motion capture

113mb and 38mb versions from gametrailers.com

Static shots of it look excellent, but, ugh, does it hit the uncanny valley hard when the caracters are moving or talking.

You have to watch the video... My jaw totally dropped through the whole thing! The screens dont do it justice.


*** Thanks for the mention Elderly.

Great visuals and great style. If they even manage to improve on Idnigo's sort of filly storyline they'll have a huge winner.

I agree- they have something very good going here... Hope it stays that way!

Finished indigo prophecy, hooked from start to finish, but oddly never played through it again.

This is looking good, even though her jaw took a bit of getting used. But it certainly held my attention from start to finish.

Me neither (haven't played it through again, that is), but I haven't unistalled it yet...
