Kara Comes to Life (and Pamela Cries)

March 9, 2012 Gaming, Video Games 2

KaraAnd Roger Ebert says video games aren’t art. Quantic Dream, the developers of the popular game Heavy Rain, released this demo video at the Game Developers Conference this week in San Francisco. From All Things D:

Made by the Paris-based Quantic Dream, developers of the groundbreaking Heavy Rain game, the “Kara” concept video is a look at the future of gaming, using full-body motion capture and a new computer-graphics engine. It is running in real time on Sony’s PlayStation 3 platform.

Mostly, it is just heartbreaking, as a robot comes to life and is quickly scared by the idea of how precious that can be.
