Heavy Rain packshot image
Heavy Rain is an interactive drama psychological thriller video game created by Quantic Dream exclusively for the PlayStation 3. The game is written and directed by Quantic
Dream's founder and CEO David Cage. Heavy Rain's story is a dramatic thriller modeled after film noir, featuring four protagonists involved with the mystery of the
Origami Killer, a serial killer who uses extended periods of rainfall to drown
his victims. Ethan Mars is trying to save his son
from being the next victim, while
investigative journalist Madison Paige,
FBI profiler Norman Jayden, and
private detective Scott Shelby are each
trying to track down clues to the Origami Killer's identity. The player
interacts with the game by performing
actions highlighted on screen related
to motions on the controller, and in
some cases, performing a series of quick time events during fast-paced action sequences. The player's decisions and actions during the game will affect the narrative; the main characters can be killed, and certain actions may lead to different scenes and endings.
