“Heavy Rain has always been a very special project to me. It was the first time I was writing about my personal experience as a father, the first time I created a game based on something I experienced in real life. Years later, millions of people around the world have shared the emotions I felt when I lost my son in a mall, and have answered this simple but deep question: how far are you prepared to go for someone you love.” said David Cage, CEO of Quantic Dream and Director of Heavy Rain. “Today, we are glad to make this game available to all PC gamers, who will discover the interlaced stories of this father looking for his son, Ethan Mars, the FBI agent Norman Jayden, the journalist Madison Page and the private detective Scott Shelby.”
