Quantic Dream’s David Cage hopes to challenge our minds with the upcoming PS3 exclusive, Beyond. Chatting with EDGE Magazine, the outspoken developer explained that he is not interested in giving players “fun”, but instead hopes to offer “meaning”. Clearly, he’s got his philosophical hat on again.
"My goal is to surprise people, to give them something they want without knowing they want it. I want to create an emotional journey, a unique experience,” he said.
"I am not interested in giving them 'fun', I want to give them meaning; I don't want to challenge their thumbs, I want to challenge their minds."
Beyond follows the tale of Jodie Holmes, a female accompanied by a supernatural entity. The game’s due out next year on PlayStation 3.
