Beyond: Two Souls

Seeing as we've been discussing Video Game Genres recently in class, I though I'd mention a relatively new type: interactive film.

I'm sure there are debates about whether this is more of a game or a film. You obviously 'play' it, and there are objectives and rules, but everything is cinematic in feel, and yet it goes beyond cinema, because you are playing the character, making the choices, dealing with the consequences, making you empathize much more with the character than if you were just watching them.

Here is a trailer/teaser for the latest upcoming title in this genre: 'Beyond: Two Souls' (featuring Ellen Page)

I also have a link to an interview with the co-CEO working on this project.
