Gorgeous Korean Game 'Project M' Gives Off Heavy Rain Vibes

Matt Lorrigan

South Korean studio NCSOFT has announced Project M, an interactive movie experience built in Unreal Engine 5, and it looks pretty stunning.

Alongside the announcement, NCSOFT has dropped the first trailer for the game, showing off the “photorealistic graphics and high production values” that the studio is aiming for. It's rather gorgeous, and the short glimpses of gameplay that we do get are very reminiscent of Quantic Dream titles such as Heavy Rain or Detroit.

“The trailer is a technical showcase of realistic environmental textures, emotive facial expressions, and realistic character animation – blending NC’s technical prowess in 3D scanning, motion capture, and visual effects,” reads the official announcement.

Project M is now in development and coming to consoles, although we don't have platform specifics as of yet. Make sure to check out the trailer for yourself down below.

  • To bad I had no idea what was actually going on

    But graphically it looks pretty nice, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will be a good or fun game to play.

    …only time will tell
  • @Yourburnstar, Yeah, I'm in the camp of, "graphics aren't the end-all, be-all to gaming" the way so many others see games.

    I often find myself enjoying a lot of indie games and even the Nintendo Switch with lower res graphics, or 8-bit and 16-bit graphics better than a lot of the hi-end graphic games typically found in AAA games.
  • @2 Honestly most AAA games disappointing me these days, I've found some real gems from indie and small dev teams.
  • @3 Yes, same here. It is incredible how many AAA games which cost millons of dollars and require a lot of people to be involved for development, in the last 10 years or so have been an utter failure. While indie and small studio games are really enjoyable and way better in so many ways. An absolute proof that real creativity and talent have nothing to do with putting tons of money on the table.
  • I'm ina similar camp that many of my favourite experiences over the past few years have been from the inide and AA camps, but I don't know how many fully-fledged AAA games have been "utter failures".

    There have been some, for sure. Anthem, Avengers, Battlefield 2042 (arguably) but most are still pulling huge numbers of sales.

    OT: This seems like an excelent partnership of K-drama and Heavy Rain stylings without any of David Cage's creepiness or Quantic Dreams issues.
