To those of us used to seeing any video game succcess story turned into a cottage industry and replicated to within an inch of its life it’s downright refreshing hearing Quantic Dream studio head and main brain behind Heavy Rain David Cage’s assurances that there’s plenty of exploration left to be done within the framework of this new genre.
We created the genre,” David Cage says, “we own the genre, and we want to show that Heavy Rain was not a coincidence or a lucky shot – that it was really something that makes sense and that we can build on.”
“So, we are going to explore different directions. Still very dark, still for adults, but completely different from Heavy Rain. We want to satisfy our fans, but we want to surprise them too. That’s our challenge,” he went on. So the Heavy Rain genre can tell any kind of story as long as it’s dark and gruesome. Good to know.Filed Under: Gaming News, Technology News
