It looks like fears that Heavy Rain
was going to be out there for mainstream gamers were unfounded as Sony announced
today that the game has passed the one million copies sold mark. The game was a bit out there as it wasn't as much of a traditional game as something like God of War III
but rather something of an interactive novel. The game was rated very highly (Cyril loved it
) so it's nice to see a different game that's critically lauded doing well.
Hopefully this opens up the coffers for other developers who want to take the industry in a different route and I'm interested to see what the folks at Quantic Dream are working on next.
