Speaking to SPOnG this week, Heavy Rain creator David Cage has made some rather impressive claims.
“What’s next for you?” he was asked during Wednesday night’s BAFTAs. “Will you continue [to] try [to] push barriers of interactive storytelling or build more bridges in other genres?”
“We created the genre,” Cage replied. “We own the genre.”
Bold claims, Mr Cage. Are they true?
“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,” he said.
He goes on to say that he is “exploring different directions” and the next game of his will be “very dark, for adults” but “completely different” from Heavy Rain.
Let’s hope the first five minutes of his next game aren’t quite as dull.
