PSX Audience Combines to Rescue Imperiled Fish in Detroit: Become Human

PSX Audience Combines to Rescue Imperiled Fish in Detroit: Become Human

And we have a release window, too.

It's rarely a great idea to try and get the audience involved in a running demo; but in the case of Detroit: Become Human, it was enough to bring a little life to a mostly staid PSX presentation.

Upon taking the stage to show Detroit: Become Human, producer Guillaume de Fondaumière invited the audience to make the choices for him in the demo by cheering. Naturally, the audience focused on the most important thing in a tense hostage situation: a fish that had leapt out of its tank.

Fondaumière initially walked past the fish, but when he doubled back to rescue it, he got the biggest cheer of the night.

"Everything has a consequence," Fondaumière joked.

The rest of the demo, which had previously been shown at E3 2017, wound up lasting an interminable 15 minutes, at the end of which the audience was able to engineer it so Daniel shot the hostage taker in the head.

Detroit: Become Human is the new game from controversial director David Cage. It focuses on the lives of androids, and features what Quantic Dreams says are socially relevant themes.

Detroit: Become Human will be out next spring.
