Cage: 'I wish more developers would be allowed to take risks'

Heavy Rain creator David Cage has said that more developers should "be allowed to take risks", adding that it's "a mistake [for the industry] to limit ourselves to a certain audience". (Beyond: Two Souls, Heavy Rain , Industry, PS3)

True that. It looks like the margin for new IPs is getting smaller and smaller. I like Sony because they give devs like Cage a great chance.

Unfortunately, publishers dont want to have any risk and they want a guaranteed hit.

Thats why we have so many dude bros cookie cutter shooters.

Couldn't agree more.. while many would consider this generation the best ever for gaming, in reality it has just gave birth to the death of creativity and developer risks. Can understand really with the increased costs of making games but it's only going to get worse tbh.

Once gaming hit mainstream it has been more about filling money hats for publishers and less about developers vision to make a fun, creative and innovating game. One great example has been tacking on MP to numberous SP IP's that were perfectly fine.

Thank god the indie scene has exploded with a lot of great lil games.

its clear who wants to give freedom to devs - maybe not full freedom but at least they can do fine with that.

agreed. the only ones taking risks are those lil small developers with their indies. look at games like the unfinished swan, the lone survivor and bastion. all unique and quite risky to make. at least they've got balls :L

This is why I think Japan will make a comeback. Someone will put forth something that will be a benchmark in a certain genre that will sway the tide. They've fell behind now because of the fps sweet spot. Japan needs a niche title again, i.e. Pacman, Super Mario, Street Fighter

If development costs were lower and the PS3 had not adopted the cell processor, it would be possible. I'm looking through the Wii's catalog and I can't help but be amazed by how a game like Manhunt 2 and MadWorld were allowed to grace it.

I agree with David Cage. Developers need to have more freedom on what kind of games they want to make. Mostly, indies are the ones making new and innovative games.
