Developer Fallen Leaf in partnership with Dear Villagers have released an all new video going behind the scenes with upcoming psychological thriller Fort Solis’ cast and crew. Recorded at PAX East, the panel “Bringing Characters to Life: Game Acting and Motion Capture in Fort Solis” is a star-studded forum covering various acting intricacies and the challenges of translating them to performance capture.
As the video game medium evolves and welcomes in countless new types of technology, actors are now able to deliver and translate subtle to extreme performances based on their characters’ role. Storytelling within the industry has never been better.
Fort Solis’ all-star cast includes Roger Clark (Arthur Morgan from Red Dead Redemption II, Back For Blood), Julia Brown (The Last Kingdom, World on Fire), and Troy Baker (The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite), who offers a prerecorded message for the panel. The actors are joined by Game Director James Tinsdale, and host Alanah Pearce (AKA Charalanahzard, IGN, Cyberpunk 2077, God Of War).
Fort Solis is a sci-fi thriller set on a mysteriously abandoned mining facility on Mars. Players will explore the station at their own pace, gathering clues from its bunkers, labs, crew quarters, and harsh, stormy surface to understand what enigmatic horrors befell its inhabitants. Fort Solis will release this Summer for PlayStation 5 and PC.
