Shack News: "In a very real sense, failure is not an option in David Cage's games. There is no 'game over' when you fail to hit the timing in a quicktime event. Choices have consequences, but it's not a 'Choose Your Own Adventure' book. Flipping to the wrong page won't result in the death of the main character.
Instead, in both Heavy Rain and Cage's newest game, Beyond: Two Souls, the story simply progresses uninterrupted until it reaches its logical conclusion, whatever that might be."
