Creator: Quantic Dream

Quantic Dream is a Paris-based Video Game developer studio founded in 1997 by David De Gruttola, better known under his pen name David Cage. The studio's games are famous for their cinematic and emotion- and thought-provoking storylines, but perhaps equally infamous for the amount of Quick Time Events that dominate the gameplay.

Games produced by the studio:

  • Omikron: The Nomad Soul (1999; Dreamcast, PC; PlayStation port cancelled)
  • Quark (cancelled)
  • Fahrenheit (2005; PC, PlayStation 2, Xbox; retitled Indigo Prophecy in the US)
  • Heavy Rain (2010)
  • Heavy Rain Chronicles Episode 1: The Taxidermist
  • Heavy Rain: Move Edition
  • Beyond: Two Souls (2013)
  • Omikron 2 (TBA)

Films and tech demos produced by the studio:

  • Immortal (2004): QD produced most of the CGI cinematics in the movie.
  • The Casting (2006): The tech demo for what would eventually become Heavy Rain. Its heroine appears in the game as Lauren Winter.
  • Kara (2012): The tech demo for Beyond, produced in 2011 but unreleased to public for a year. Similarities between the eponymous character and Beyond's heroine Jodi have been noted.
  • The Dark Sorcerer (2013): Tech demo for the Playstation 4. Notable for being a comedy, especially surprising considering all of Quantic Dream's previous projects all took themselves seriously.
