The critical reception may have been more mixed than a bag of sweets, but it seems that Beyond: Two Souls has fared much better in the retail arena. Quantic Dream co-founder Guillaume de Fondaumière has revealed that the interactive drama sold over one million copies in 2013, with 70,088 units stemming from its native France. That's a figure greater than its predecessor Heavy Rain managed in 12 weeks.

There had been some speculation that the innovative escapade had flopped, but fortunately that’s not the case. Some strange plot twists aside, we adored the Ellen Page-fronted adventure, describing it as a game that "you should play” in our review. With production wrapped up on the PlayStation 3, the Parisian developer is now turning its attention to Sony’s next generation console, where it’s working on a title rumoured to be named Singularity.
