Kara (2013) – Featuring Valorie Curry
Our Comments –
I ran across-ed an article about this tech demo “Kara” that was titled “David Cage made the wrong game with Beyond – we need Kara on PS4” and honestly I feel the same way. I am a big fan of “Beyond – Two Souls” and of course I love the Game “The Last of Us”. One afternoon while sitting bored on the IPAD I turned on my “Beyond – Two Souls” App and noticed the bonus features; of course I clicked on it. They’re was release videos which one of the videos were “Kara” and after watching it, I began my research to get the game. I called everyone to find more on “Kara” (how could I get a copy?) no one had an answer so back to the internet checking I went.
Kara was only released as a Tech Demo (the video :(, saddening)! After tons of reading I thought to sit down and share my opinions on this matter after of course contacting “Quantic Dream” to stress “Bring this game out”. With no response from “Quantic Dream” about maybe releasing “Kara”, I read the article above stating that “David Cage made the wrong Game” and had to share it. Yes we believe that “David Cage” did make the wrong game! Kara performed by Valorie Curry is simply an amazing concept and I can see many directional ideas to go with on such little described in the Tech Demo. Great job Valorie Curry, and of course the team at Quantic Dream; we cannot highly stress this enough, give us this game! We want “Kara”!
Enjoy the tech demo below and thanks for reading.

Official IMDB Info –
Info: Kara is a visually stunning and emotional PS3 technology which is here “represented” by a female android who becomes self conscious.
Quantic Dream released a short film following a character called Kara. The five-minute film is called Kara. She’s a female android brought to life on an assembly line, and as her body is put together piece by piece she’s asked to speak in English, German and French and sing in Japanese. After expressing emotion she’s marked as defective and being to be disassembled, but before being permanently shut down she begs for her life. Her beating blue robotic heart tells how nervous she is, and the man assembling Kara allows her to continue off the manufacturing line Written by: Anonymous
IGN – Reference
This is a project created by Quantic Dream, the makers of the breakthrough adventure game Heavy Rain. The project is referred to as “KARA”, is it presents a futuristic encounter with an android character who is given the name Kara. It was debuted at GDC 2012 as a technical showcase for PlayStation 3 development technology.
The “Kara” demo is a self-contained project using Quantic Dream’s advanced motion capture, animation and lighting technology. Creator David Cage stated that the setting and characters seen in the “Kara” short would not be the same as what the team plans to deliver with its next game project. Instead, this was meant to be a glimpse into the technology and storytelling capabilities the team is capable of — technology that was eventually revealed to be the supernatural thriller Beyond: Two Souls.
As with the company’s pre-Heavy Rain demo The Casting, however, fans might be able to glean a few ideas about possible future projects from what’s in the demo … but don’t take anything for granted — as always with Quantic Dream, expect surprises!
NOTE: Any content from the “Kara” demo is based on a prototype running in real-time on PlayStation 3. It is concept only and is not necessarily taken from any software title currently in development.
