Design director Tom Heaton said he and the other developers believe “it’s unlikely that many players will get eight characters through to the end on the first playthrough.”
Am I the only one that gets a Heavy Rain vibe from this?
Nope, I'm in the same boat.
Yes very much a Heavy Rain game. And Heavy Rain it was impossible to keep them all alive. If it's so much like Heavy Rain, I wonder if it will have similar Heavy Rain bug where you could keep yelling Shaun over and over. (Vid is on YouTube)
I think this gameplay style that David Cage made is a perfect fit to this kind of game and storytelling.
Ditto. Glad this title didn't die.
I could tell they were heavily inspired by Heavy Rain's style of decision making. They look very similar, which is a good thing.
its definitely similar in a gameplay sense.its an interactive movie. it was a ps move game so im guessing most of it would be button prompts.
Heavy Rain with a touch of Obscure and Obscure: The Aftermath (in my humble opinion).
Dead means Dead.... Hmmm im just gonna grab my coat before hairs stand up on my neck.
Can't wait for this game man !
Reminds me of the suicide mission. Rip jack!
looking at gameplay videos of this game its going to be hard to keep them a live, just has too many variables and some things just seem out of normal survival tactics. one video had player pick up scissors andd the use it on enemy. not sure if it was picking the item that triggered an evitable death or it could have been actually using the item. unlike heavy rain where it was pretty easy to keep them all alive. that game was actually harder to let the characters die.
This is is absolutely PS4's sleeper hit of next summer. So much looks great about it, that I wasn't so convinced of a couple months ago. The acting looks more convincing, the writing seems to have come on stronger and more mature, as well as the gameplay mirroring Heavy Rain more than I expected (except the choice system here is much deeper and features heavy branching), and the visuals are just spectacular.
