Denis Dyack thinks Heavy Rain could be 'fantastic'

Outspoken Too Human developer Denis Dyack has revealed that he has high hopes for Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain, believing that if it overcomes its potential pitfalls, it could be a brilliant title.

"They're really trying to break some of the uncanny valley issues that you find in video games," he says. "I think what they appear to be striving for is really good. I don't think that everyone should do that. I remember leaving the film A Million Dollar Baby and thinking, that's so emotionally riveting for me that I want to be able to create a video game that does the same thing. If that's what they're striving to do, whatever technique they use, whether it be the cinema or the quick time events, I think that's a good thing.

"Now, doing it in such a way that doesn't frustrate the player so he doesn't feel like he's just watching or playing something like Dragon's Lair, that's the trick. So, I would love to see that. I would love to see something interactive that was just as moving as A Million Dollar Baby. If they're able to do that, that would be fantastic. I think what they're driving for appears to be the right direction."

I'm with Dyack on this one. Quantic Dream is a terrific studio and I have high hopes for Heavy Rain. Just so long as they get new voice actors, this could truly be an amazing experience for PS3 fans. It's just going to be a long, long wait until 2010.
