Sony has released the first installment of their Making Of series for Beyond Two Souls.
In the video (embedded below), writer/director David Cage and other members of the cast and crew—including executive producer Guillaume de Fondaumiere, Ellen Page, Willem Dafoe, and others—discuss the origins of Quantic’s latest, and touch upon their experience working with Cage on Beyond.
“I was confronted with the loss of someone in my family close to me, and it was really a shocking experience,” Cage says in the video. “I wanted to tell a different story, and not talk about death the usual way, I would say, but really deal with death as a physical reality that can be explained.”
Also, there’s a shot of Willem Dafoe sitting on a throne. The real Dafoe, not his digital counterpart. That’s worth three minutes of your time easy.
Beyond: Two Souls launches on PlayStation 3 October 8 in North America, October 11 in Europe.
