More games again today. I’m a little late to the party on this one, but this video is a masterpiece from both a games perspective and even a writing perspective. A lot of the credit has to go to the artists, motion capture systems, and actresses who brought Kara to life, but much also has to go to a very tight, very spare, very powerfully simple story, brilliantly executed.

A commercial android is assembed and put through standard startup tests. Everything checks out until it awakens to consciousness and sentience, and betrays that awakening through independent thought and emotion. 

This is a new concept project from Quantic Dream, the studio that created Heavy Rain.

Inspiration is everywhere.
