"Poor Ashley…or Chris. In Until Dawn, difficult choices are given to the player, ones that will determine the shape of the story moving forward. Sound familiar? It’s a philosophy that started – at least to this extent – with Indigo Prophecy and continued with Heavy Rain, both developed by Quantic Dream. But while the latter had you playing four lead characters, Until Dawn gives you eight, and yes, any of them can die thanks to your choices, and the story will continue to unfold accordingly."
