Kara vs. Heavy Rain tech demo comparison video

See how far the technology has come

Yesterday Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dreams revealed Kara, a stunning tech demo showcasing what the studio can do with PS3.


If you cast your minds back a few years you might remember The Casting, a similar demo that was used to provide a glimpse at the tech powering Heavy Rain.

Like Kara, The Casting placed the spotlight on a single character, and showed off the technical prowess of Quantic Dream's engine with subtle facial and body movements, which also engaged viewers and told a story.

Since then, Quantic Dreams has had plenty of time to explore the PS3's architecture, naturally making the newly released Kara demo far more impressive.

But just how much has Quantic Dreams learnt in the six years since The Casting? Find out in the comparison video below.
