LOVING CARE is a provocative, psychological thriller designed
to take full advantage of the stunning capabilities of DVD
technology, while lifting CD-ROM to new heights. Starring
two-time Oscar-nominee John Hurt, and based on a novel by
Andrew Neiderman (Devils Advocate),TLC provides all
of the pleasures of a traditional motion picture while satisfying
the voyeuristic and self-analytic interests engaged by its
unique interactive elements. TLC is not like other so-called
interactive movies; its design is unprecedented in that the
viewers psyche is the invisible director of the tale,
determining both character and plot development every step
of the way. The possible alternative versions of the experience
are virtually infinite.
You, the viewer, must help psychiatrist Doctor Turner (John Hurt) unveil the desperate triangle of power, lust, and deception formed by his beautiful, tragic patient, her dangerous husband, and the enigmatic, seductive psychotherapist who suddenly enters their lives. Your own psyche becomes the key to what happens on the screen. Your answers to Doctor Turners probing questions about the characters behavior, and about your own personal psychology, invisibly determine the course of action and outcome of the story. TLC is a sort of virtual biofeedback device that senses your desires, needs, and fears, and then shapes its story to reflect, and satisfy, your deepest cravings and terrors. You, too, become one of Doctor Turners patients. You can read your own developing personality profile after each Q&A session with the Doctor, and receive an extensive written psychological analysis at the end of the film.
CARE is an absolutely unique experience, combining high-end
movie production with computer game-like interactivity for
the first time. Its also the very first title made just
for DVD; its not a re-purposed movie youve seen
before, or a ported-over computer game. TLC takes full advantage
of DVD technology in a way no one else has even imagined before
now. The Interactive Digital Media Association recently awarded
TLC its top prize of BEST DVD TITLE.
