One of the more intriguing titles announced at last month’s E3 was Beyond: Two Souls, which is being made by Heavy Rain developer, Quantic Dream. Not only does it look like a great action title, the game will no doubt focus intently on the emotional struggles of Beyond’s protagonist Jodie, played by actress Ellen Page. The magnitude of such a daunting game is made possible through a series of intricately placed motion capture markers — along with the talent of Page — helping to convey facial expressions down to a furrowed brow or wrinkled forehead. It’s amazing to watch, and even more amazing to see the actors perform their craft in an unfamiliar environment.
