Heavy Rain

Heavy Rain: The Origami Killer

An interactive thriller adventure game developed by studio Quantic Dream (Fahrenheit, Omikron: The Nomad Soul). The player controls several seemingly unrelated characters, each with their own storylines and motivations. How the story develops depends greatly on the decisions made by the player as all plots intertwine until they meet at the game's finale. What’s characteristic for the game is its focus on matters of morality and ethics. The developers took extra care to reflect the various types of human behavior and feelings of the characters in as realistic a way as possible. It can be noticed for example in great facial expressions. The game features high quality graphics with spectacular explosions and realistic weather conditions. It also features a pretty grim vibe that successfully builds an atmosphere of sadness and hopelessness.
