Beyond: Two Souls is a cinematic video game developed by Quantic Dream and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 3 in 2013. The game features a complex, non-linear storyline and innovative gameplay mechanics that blend action, exploration, and decision-making elements.
The game follows the life of Jodie Holmes, a young woman with a supernatural gift that allows her to communicate with an entity known as Aiden. Players control both Jodie and Aiden throughout the game, using their unique abilities to solve puzzles, fight enemies, and interact with the environment.
The game's storyline is told through a series of non-chronological flashbacks, as players move back and forth through different periods of Jodie's life. The game's themes include identity, family, love, and the nature of the soul, and the player's choices throughout the game have a significant impact on the story's outcome.
Beyond: Two Souls is also notable for its cinematic presentation, featuring Hollywood actors Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe in the lead roles, as well as a motion capture system that accurately captures their performances. The game's stunning visuals and immersive sound design add to the overall cinematic experience.
