Detroit: Become Human

In a dystopian vision of our near future, Detroit is the story of three androids, three machines designed to obey, who start to feel emotions. Confronted with persecution and the violence of society, they will all have to decide who they want to be.

Connor is a prototype designed to help human investigators on cases involving androids; Kara becomes a fugitive by empathising with a little girl, united in their dream of freedom; Markus will become the leader of the android revolution.
The player will control all three in turn, taking control of their destinies, and telling not only their individual stories, but also the story of their people and of their world.

Detroit is by far the most ambitious title ever created by Quantic Dream; with this game, the team wanted to push their limits by creating the most bending game they have ever made. Your actions have real and spectacular consequences: there are entire scenes that you can see or miss based on your actions, your closest allies may help you until the end or die just after you meet them, your destiny itself can be totally different depending on your choices. You must also be very careful with your three main characters, because any of them may die at any time.

Each story is almost as unique as your DNA: it is the result of the choices you made, the minor ones and the important ones, because in Detroit, all choices matter. You will need to observe, think, decide, feel, follow your intuition or your heart, to tell the unique stories of each character, and their stories will become your personal story.

Designed by Ken Okuyama, the M.8 integrates visual refinements that deliver a great massage experience. Inspired by Okuyama’s automotive roots with Porsche, Ferrari and Maserati, the M.8 incorporates rear-swinging doors to deliver convenience in the massage chair. 

“Getting in and out of a traditional massage chair can be a challenge for older users and anyone with back issues,” says Levin. “The M.8 is the only massage chair on the market that has successfully addressed this issue.”

The M.8 boasts a number of advanced features, including:

  • DeltaWave massage engine provides robust massage capability and movements of knead, tap, pulse, and roll in a wide range of speeds, allowing simultaneous pneumatic and mechanical intensity adjustments that offer with many intensity settings.
  • Choreographed and refined to feel human, the M.8 offers a wide variety of movements like “delta knead,” and “delta tap”, which constantly changes the rate of movement to imitate the professional human hand massage experience. 
  • An ultra-slow tap creates a “pressing” sensation, while a proprietary “breathe” sequence allows users to match their rate of respiration to the breathing movements of the M.8.
  • MaxTrack seat and back massage track geometry conforms to the user’s body and offers independent adjustment of back, legs, and seat.
  • Auto-Adaptive Design and Shiatsu Point Locator personalises the massage and automatically adjusts to user height, then detects shoulder position before a massage begins. Using the scanned data, the chair focuses on the shiatsu points of the back and glutes specific to the user’s body, resulting in a customised experience.  
  • Heated DeltaWave rollers help loosen muscles and promote improved blood circulation. Additional area heat in the neck, shoulders, foot, palm, back, and seat gently warm and relax the body.
  • Proprietary rear-swinging door design allows for ease of entry and exit. 
  • Bluetooth speakers integrated into the headrest of the chair allow users to connect their devices to play music, relaxing tones, or guided meditations to enhance their experience.

The Girl From St Agnes

At St Agnes, a prestigious all-girls boarding school in the Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, the only saint is in the name. When a popular student is found dead at the base of the old mill, the school is quick to declare the death a tragic accident. But drama teacher Kate Ballard (Nina Milner) doesn’t believe it. The more she investigates, the more Kate realises that she didn’t know the dead girl, Lexi Summerveld (Jane DeWet), or the school at all. Behind the imposing walls of St Agnes, Lexi’s killer won’t be the only person exposed.

The eight-part TV show, The Girl From St Agnes, premieres on Showmax on 31 January 2019.

Here are four reasons to be excited about the series:   

It’s a drama in South African English, for a change

The TV show is a rare showcase of South Africa’s English-language acting talent.
“English-speaking actors generally work internationally and they have to do American or British accents to make decent money,” says legendary casting director Moonyeenn Lee, who’s been nominated for two Emmy Awards in the past three years, for The Looming Tower and Roots. “That was why it was nice when this came up, to do English, but South African English.” 

It’s being distributed internationally

In a South African first, the dark drama is being distributed internationally by Red Arrow Studios International (Death and Nightingales, Bosch). 

It’s only eight binge-able episodes

Look, we love soaps and telenovelas as much as the next South African, but sometimes it’s nice to watch something with a satisfying ending, like finding out who killed Lexi Summerveld and why. 

It’s like nothing you’ve seen before on South African TV

On Showmax, South Africans normally turn to HBO series for edgy content, rather than local series, which tend to be a lot more conservative, with nudity and divisive topics generally avoided. Conservative isn’t a word anyone’s going to use for this TV show.
