The lights are on
Comedy is hard to get right, and that's exactly why Quantic Dream made a PS4 demo around it.
The Dark Sorcerer isn't a PlayStation 4 game, but more of a tech/thought experiment by Beyond: Two Souls/Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream. Of course, David Cage and the developer have done this sort of thing before with the Kara demo, but this is of a decidedly different strain.
The demo was shown at Sony's press conference to a puzzled audience, and in an entry by director David Cage at The Official PlayStation Blog, the developer says the demo showcases Quantic's PlayStation 4 engine in its first iteration.
The intent was to use the engine's tech and to once again try and push the boundaries of what kinds of emotions technology is capable of representing and drawing from gamers.

i thought this was weird
Maybe it's just not my kind of humor, but I didn't find it very funny.
It just seemed way too rehearsed at times and poorly performed at others.
It was cute, and I let loose a few smiles.
Kinda funny, they are totally right about comedy being hard in games, but i would rather play the stick of truth
I laughed pretty hard at that. It was immaculately well done and extremely well emoted, which is what the tech demo set out to do: show the complexities of emotion and emoting possible on the next gen hardware.
I wish this was a tv series.
I was thinking from the begining it had to somehow end funny, like I could see it coming. Otherwise it would have been kinda weird. But when it actually did, I loved it
That was fantastic. Visually pleasing and very funny.
I was very impressed with what they could do with the man's facial expressions during the demo. I liked the trailer enough but I wasn't watching It for comedy, I wanted to see what he could do.
I thought it was a great tech demo.
