Quantic Dream's "Kara" tech demo was one of the most impressive trailers we've seen this generation, and according to our most recent poll, it seems most of you would agree. It was special, wasn't it?
The vast majority said Quantic Dream is "amazing" and although the character of Kara won't be involved in the team's new game (or so we've heard), there's no doubt she will be remembered. As you might expect from such a talented developer, that piece was beautifully designed, extremely well acted, and brilliantly choreographed. It reminds us of just how progressive Heavy Rain really was and makes us all pine for information on QD's newest project. Here's hoping they lift the lid on that one some time soon.
