Comic-Con panel discuss the making of Beyond: Two Souls

20428BEYOND SCREEN 12 e1342386472512 Comic Con panel discuss the making of Beyond: Two SoulsAt San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, David Cage made up a panel alongside Ellen Page and a new face to discuss Beyond: Two Souls.

During the session, the three answered questions from the audience on a variety of topics related to the making of the game.

It gave us an opportunity to hear Cage talk about his aims and how the game will play. Cage emphasised that it’s “fully interactive; it’s not a movie”. You are the writer, the director and the actor.

You can switch between Page’s character Jodie and her supernatural friend, and when you play as the supernatural entity, you can go through walls and “interact with matter in different ways”.

Page meanwhile spoke a little about how she’s found the process of performance capture and more generally about how working on games can differ from working on films. She made one particularly interesting point: You have to be aware of around 70 cameras for performance capture but only one for filmmaking. Acting in games therefore is much more akin to acting on stage, where you are seen from all angles.

The session also gave us a chance to meet Kadeem Hardison. The Brooklyn actor is best known for his role as Dwayne Wayne in the sitcom A Different World, but you’ll soon get to see him as a Cole Freeman, a government agent and a researcher of paranormal activity.
