"As an artist and producer you want to find other ways to spread your creativity," said Davis of his choice to work with studio Matmi on in-development title Pocket Warwick.’ "A game seemed a good way to do that."

Pointing to the fact that he believes games can now convey enough emotion and detail to satisfy an actor’s standards, Davis revealed he feels a game can serve as an extension of what an actor can do as a performer.

"It’s no less rewarding than getting up on stage and doing a Shakespeare play," he concluded.
