The story goes like this: a young journalist is investigating a case on the disappearance of several girls. So she visits a house of an ex-taxi cab driver who is suspected of killing these girls.
The demo shown was fully-playable, no cut-scenes took place, and you could control the main character at any time. Two ways were shown to complete it, showing that there are different ways to get through the game’s story. Quantic have implemented SIXAXIS control in order to open windows, hit objects, and other actions. The game didn’t load either, meaning there is no loading screens.
You could actually hear what’s going on in the mind of the main character, meaning her thoughts. It lets the player know what choices are available to take in the game. It’s a pretty cool feature.
The background items and objects in any area are fully interactive. That means all objects can be used, any door can be opened, it is very interactive.
There is a split-screen system that lets you control the main character as well as keep an eye on the murderer that you are following.
Heavy Rain seems to be shaping up great. With so many interactive features, Quantic’s latest creation is sure to be a hit. Hit the link for a presentation video (that takes quite a while to load).
