Promising News For Heavy Rain A Deluge

A little while back, a mysterious quote popped up in the UK, and it appeared to focus on an upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive. The words were encouraging enough to kick off a mighty debate, and here they are again in case you had forgotten:

"I don't mean to be a tease - all I can say is that I was left speechless. If the footage I was shown truly is "in game", as told to me by the Sony PR people, then we could be on the brink of a step change in what games consoles are capable of in terms of story-telling and immersion."

This was revealed at the now-infamous rumor and gossip gaming site, Surfer Girl, and this weekend, they say they can confirm their initial prediction: this game is indeed Quantic Dream's highly anticipated Heavy Rain. We should see a teaser trailer "some time in the next few months," and it ought to display a great deal of the promise we're hearing so much about. Here's another quote that's going to get you thinking:

"The technology is quite impressive, all the characters in the game are aware of the environments and contexts that they are in--it effects how they behave, what they say, how they feel, et cetera--while taking in their personality and personal experiences into account so that a character's behavior is consistent, realistic and varied."

Everything we've seen about Heavy Rain has been equally glowing, and we can't wait to get our hands on it. Being fans of Indigo Prophecy, we're more than willing to put our faith in the preceding quotes (even if they are a touch melodramatic). Hopefully, Quantic Dream will step up and deliver some official details very soon...
