Quantic Dream boss David Cage has unveiled a stunning five-minute prototype video showcasing a brand new 3D engine, running on PlayStation 3.
Kara was shot with a new engine developed by Quantic Dream, and Cage says the studio’s objective with the new engine is to clone living actors, handle significant volumes of motion capture assets, and deliver high quality at the lowest cost.
The demo was a video captured directly off a PlayStation 3 running in real-time. “It’s not CG, it’s not pre-rendered, it’s really the game,” says Cage.
Kara shows 50% of the features in the new PlayStation 3 engine. The film was shot a year ago with version 1 of the engine. Quantic Dream is now on version 3 of the unnamed engine.
French developer Quantic Dream works with proprietary technology to create its own game engines. Cage originally unveiled the tech that would go on to make Heavy Rain in 2006, in a demo titled The Casting.

Quantic Dream has not announced an actual game for this amazing technology, but did confirm that they are looking at another PS3-exclusive title.
