The history of the video game industry accounts for the small percentage of projects that become a reality and have a final version on the market. As in any creative process, there is a lot of material that is discarded or saved and in this second case it may be that the opportunity comes later. Well, that could be the fate of a popular Quantic Dream tech demo that surprised locals and strangers back in 2013.
A tech demo that could become a full-fledged video game
During the PlayStation presentation at E3 2013, Quantic Dream surprised the attendees and the audience by presenting the tech demo The Dark Sorcerer, which was intended to show what the PS4 was capable of. This demo featured a scene and a sketch of a magician who started showing off his power until someone said “cut” and from there everything went behind the scenes because all those effects were created there. This material presented a proposal with acid humor and was the work of David Cage, creative of the French company. Well, apparently this project will become a video game according to information from a reliable source.
This adventure could be the next release of Quantic Dream
