The Heavy Rain developer showed a video demonstrating the engine in which an android named Kara is being constructed before she suffers an existential crisis.
Quantic Dream head David Cage stated that the tech demo runs on the PlayStation 3 in real time, adding that the eyes were animated through motion capture.
"There were so many things we couldn't do with our Heavy Rain engine," he said. "So we decided to build a new one."
