Quantic Dream’s Beyond: Two Souls looked pretty good when it was shown off during this year’s E3. The game – about a girl named Jodie and her ghosty friend who are being chased by the government – stars Ellen Page, an actress of such fame as Canada’s own ReGenesis (and I guess Juno, whatever). The character looks and moves just like Page, and if you were wondering how this was done, you can check out this video from IGN.
If you didn’t know the name of this game, you certainly will after these eight minutes or so.
The methods used to capture the movements of the actors might be familiar if you have watched any of the bonus content on Uncharted and Uncharted 2 (or any big title of the last few years), but it is always interesting to see people act with tiny markers placed all over their bodies in a room full of cameras.
Beyond: Two Souls will release in 2013 for the PS3.
