Beyond: Two Souls is an interactive drama action-adventure video game for the PlayStation 3 and Playstation 4 home video game consoles, created by French game developer Quantic Dream and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. It was released in October 2013. The game features Jodie Holmes, one of two player characters. The other is an incorporeal entity named Aiden: a separate soul linked to Jodie since birth. Jodie, who is portrayed by actress Ellen Page, possesses supernatural powers through her psychic link to Aiden, growing from adolescence to adulthood while learning to control Aiden and the powers they share. Willem Dafoe co-stars as Nathan Dawkins, a researcher in the Department of Paranormal Activity and Jodie’s surrogate-father-figure. The actors in the game worked during the year-long project in Quantic Dream’s Paris studio to perform on-set voice acting and motion capture acting.
I’ve been wanting to go back to this game for awhile now, it’s one of my favorite games. I’m a fan of Quantic Dream games, I feel they push the boundaries of gaming mechanics and graphics. Beyond: Two Souls is more like a movie to me, while your choices can shape the game direction it doesn’t have that deep impact like in Heavy Rain. The soundtrack of this game is absolutely amazing, I always play them while working. I highly recommend trying this game if you haven’t already.
