David Cage: “Beyond: Two Souls is Not Focussed on Fun”
Say what you will about Quantic Dream’s David Cage, but he wants what he wants.
And if decides that Beyond: Two Souls should be achieve something more than just “fun”, he’ll stop at nothing to make it happen.
In conversation with Edge, Cage states:
My goal is to surprise people, to give them something they want without knowing they want it. I want to create an emotional journey, a unique experience.
I am not interested in giving them ‘fun’, I want to give them meaning; I don’t want to challenge their thumbs, I want to challenge their minds.
Maybe this is irrelevant or just overly ambitious. Maybe this is not what most people out there actually want. But this is the goal I set myself with Beyond: to create something different.
Beyond: Two Souls will be available for Playstation 3, and follows the adventures of Jodie (played by Ellen Paige) over 15 years of wandering and self-discovery.
