Neon Knights: Humanity Erased

Neon Knights: Humanity Erased is a narrative-focused psychological noir set in a frozen Copenhagen in the year 2079. The story follows Nik Gates, played by Lars Mikkelsen, a digital exorcist belonging to a secretive order called the Transenders. Behind The Wall of Copenhagen, its citizens are digitizing their consciousnesses and uploading them to the cloud at death. But like any other data, the human spirit is vulnerable to corruption. And should your new eternal life suffer enough corruption, you transform into a monstrous replica of your former self – A Holo. And the Transenders will find and erase you. The first cinematic was created with Unreal Engine 4, Rokoko motion capture, Dynamixyz facial capture technology, and a digital copy of Lars Mikkelsen, 3D scanned by Rigsters 3D.
