French game development studio Quantic Dream just came out with its new interactive cinematic game called, “Detroit: Become Human.” This new PlayStation 4 exclusive is based on the premise of an android revolution ripe with plenty of precedents. Films like “I, Robot,” “Ex Machina,” and “Ghost in the Shell” will definitely pop into mind, according to Quantic founder David Cage.

The game’s central premise is based on the main protagonist, Kara, a remarkable android in female form and is the first robot that can feel from touch and is embedded with real emotions. Thus, Kara, in some ways, wants to become human.

The basic narrative of “Detroit: Become Human” was actually influenced by Ava, the female robot in the film, “Ex Machina.” Thus, not only does the game come alive with the androids, but it is a dark game and very unpredictable, unlike your usual target and shoot RPG games.

The story is set in the near future and is located in, no brainer with this, Detroit City in Michigan. Once the hub of the car manufacturing industry, it has now become the hub of android manufacturing. And these robots are not just factory robotic arms. They’re completely in a human form including the flesh-like outer skin and appearance, ultra-lifelike, but programmed to be human-serving.

However, as more androids take over many human jobs, disgruntled unemployed humans or those driven by some mad religious morality are slowly rioting against the presence of these androids. To add to the confusion and chaos, some androids are starting to adapt certain human-like characteristics.

For instance, an android detective, Connor, dies in self-sacrifice to save a hostage, getting shot in the back and showing gamers that android blood is a sickening blue color. Androids are also treated as mere machines since they are looked upon as nothing but glorified computers. In all public places, androids are segregated from the general population such as in trains, buses, terminals, platforms, and even on selected major streets.

The “Detroit: Become Human” game allows the gamer to switch between characters, even between android and human. According to Cage, they’re working on the next project to bring the Detroit game into virtual reality so the gamer can really feel the androids come to life.

Of course, since the game is all about a conflict between artificial intelligence and humanity’s future, the gamer can only imagine what turns and decisions await him or her until the game’s reality shakes the gamer into reality as well.

The game looks so realistically life-like that it doesn’t feel like computer graphics. Driving through the city it will look and feel like the real thing including the dilapidated auto factories and abandoned houses.

PlayStation 4 actually hasn’t yet announced a release date. Not even a hint or clue as to when. We think that this game could even use a new name, “Detroid.”
