“Kara” by Quantic Dream [animation]
“Kara” certainly has a rich character arc for a tech-demo. Narratively, this is a stand-alone short film in its own right. A big leap from Quantic Dream’s first Heavy Rain tech-demo engine showcased in 2006 that had a solid emotional edge many games/demos preceding lacked. Here is Quantic Dream’s next cinematic step in motion graphics:
At GDC 2012, Quantic Dream showed this tech demo of a new engine they are building. Note: “Kara” does not represent an actual game.
See how Valorie, the girl behind Kara, got the leading role and see her transformation to become part of Quantic Dream’s latest project.
