Heavy Rain Screenshots Appropriately Sodden

By Alice O'Connor, May 22, 2009 6:43am PDT Quantic Dream--developed of Indigo Prophecy--shows off quick-time interrogation and crime-solving gadgets in new screenshots of its grim adventure game Heavy Rain.

As with Indigo Prophecy--known as Farenheit outside North America--Heavy Rain's story will be told through the eyes of several characters, and shaped by their actions.

Published by Sony, Heavy Rain is out late in the year exclusively on PlayStation 3.

  • Indigo Prophecy was incredibly fun for the first few hours, and then the QTE started getting more and more abstract, pointless, and frequent until the gameplay just boiled over into absolute annoyance. The plot moved very slowly - finally I just gave up when a certain QTE sequence was taking 4+ minutes to get 3/4 of the way through, and then it would just kill me randomly. Heavy Rain looks to have a great engine, but I learned my lesson, I hate QTE games.

    • does ANYONE like QTE? I don't think I've ever heard anyone say "Wow, those QTE sequences where I hit random buttons for 2 minutes were totally awesome! I wish there could have been more", yet for some reason they seem to keep appearing in new games. I could just about deal with them in Shenmu and God of War, but any more than that and I think I would get so annoyed I would not be able to finish the game. Actually, I am so shit at QTE that my ex-girlfriend had to do the last boss QTE in God of War 2 for me because I was getting so pissed off at constantly pressing the wrong button because I was so panicked.

      So anyway, this game looks absolutely pointless. I hope there is more gameplay than pressing buttons along with prompts otherwise we might as well just go back and play Dragon's Lair and Space Ace, which were both cooler looking :)
