The Dark Sorcerer was developed to tackle real-time comedy, says Cage

Quantic Dream director and writer David Cage has discussed the creation of the studio's PS4 tech demo 'The Dark Sorcerer', and has confirmed that the studio will use the tech in its next project.

During the E3 stage presentation above, Cage said, "We usually use these shorts just to use the technology and test the tech we are going to use in the next projects. With The Casting and Kara, we had dramatic emotions, which was something very interesting to us - how can we make people feel this drama using real-time technologies?

"But before working on The Dark Sorcerer we thought, 'OK, what else can we do with this tech? Should we do drama again, or should we try something different? And there as one emotion that very few people tried in the past, in realtime 3D. It's comedy. How can we make people smile - if not laugh in front of this tech? - Can we write something that can make you smile?"

The challenge was set by the studio internally, and The Dark Sorcerer project was born.
