David Cage, head of Quantic Dream, and creater of Heavy Rain, has revealed that he was pretty displeased with the way the game turned out and felt his team could have done much better.
However, he was happy with the way the game sold and how Heavy Rain is regarded as one of the best games on the PS3. “I think it performed better than anyone’s expectations, including ours, to be honest,” he told Gamasutra.
“We were pretty much unhappy with everything. We thought we could have done a better job in all areas, and have better rendering, and better visuals, and better gameplay, and better everything.
“This is definitely things we took into account designing the new technology, wanting to work with performance capture. And we wanted a better blend of storytelling and interactivity.
“We thought that sometimes in Heavy Rain there were moments where the balance wasn’t exactly right. We are working on new ways of merging this in a more natural and fluid way,” he added.
Quantic Dream is rumoured to be developing two games for the PS3, and an E3 unveil is certain.
