Heavy Rain Developer's New Playstation Tech Demo

March 12, 2012


Because I always like to arrive fashionably late to a party (then fill my backpack with beer and sneak out the back), here's a video that was circulating last week of Quantum Dream's (Heavy Rain's developer) latest tech demo running on a PS3 in real-time. It's called 'KARA', and centers around a female humanoid who starts to experience real emotions while being constructed on an assembly line. It freaked me the f*** out to the point I had to slam my laptop shut and I could still hear her talking for a couple seconds afterward. Then I threw the whole thing in a fire AND YOU COULD HEAR HER SCREAM. Just kidding, that was my babysitter yelling "holy shit your parents are gonna kill me!" but she should know better than to leave me alone. SHOULDN'T YOU, AMANDA? *leaping down stairs with scissors*

Hit the jump for the video.


Thanks to Angel Mass, carlos, Spamalot and Duncan, who agree any humanoids who start feeling emotions should have the cord pulled STAT.

  • you suck fakeGW!  your redesign is awful 

  • Mack

    Will not be buying anything more from the makers of Heavy Drain (on my wallet) 6hrs to complete a game that cost $130.......they can go fuck themselves

  • eschwa22

    what game exists that costs $130 bucks.  videogames never go for more than like $60 ever.

  • CHANGE THE SHITTY WHITE SHIT! IT'S SHIT! Also...this looks amazing

  • Hanadulset

    2:32, did they say "cervical and optical animation?" what the bloody hell is cervical animation?

  • karasuKumo

    When the guy was running around with the kid on his back I was expecting some kind of explosion.

  • MeggyMonster


  • once you go black GW, you can't go back. You've tried this shit before. Nobody liked it.

  • BeastmanAIDS

    of reminds me of Bjork's All Is Full Of Love music video directed by
    Chris Cunningham (of Windowlicker fame). Pretty slick effects and the
    robots are lesbians which is always nice: www(dot)youtube(dot)com/watch?v=wxBO28j3vug


  • Soylent Green Is People

    The white background sucks all kind of fucking balls, GW. Why do you keep trying to whiten the shit out of this shit?!

  • Gui_letters

     True. It looks like they tried to go for  some middle ground what with the background staying dark. But the reason that there was such a back lash last time was because light text on a dark bg is a fuck ton easier to read.

  • I agree the background sucks all kinds of balls. And the site keeps getting slowly cleaner and more appley. Bring back the gritty old site.

  • OrehRatiug

    Cheesy and cliche, looked nice though.

  • RDarker

    I agree it felt rushed and cliche. They need to tighten up the mouth when enunciating 'TH and 'P's it looks unnatural. And why doesn't she have one of those new 10,000 RPM no pulse hearts? Why does she have a heart anyway? Shouldn't it be a dark matter battery?

  • eschwa22

    you are looking way too deep into this.  It's a trailer to show the graphics, thats it.

  • People sure do hate the fuck out of change. I, for one, enjoy the new white background GW. Good on ya.

  • Emmitt Morgans

     I don't like the change, but it's mostly because now the site looks EXACTLY like "I Watch Stuff"...

    (unsurprisingly "The Superficial" looks exactly the same)
