Heavy Rain interactive game on YouTube

Shares

Hey look, another creative use of YouTube’s “Choose Your Own Adventure” feature. This remake of the cineractive experience known as Heavy Rain captures the essence of gameplay while ditching the console and controller. OK, so it won’t have you shaking your mouse around to dry off after a shower. But it’s a potent example of how great interactive storytelling can be accomplished with relatively simple tools. All the Garage Kubricks out there have a powerful new weapon in their arsenal.

    This can't hope to replace the experience. Yes, the decisions are in there, but the character and consequence isn't. At the third trial, I cut off Ethan's finger. Ethan was the one with the knife, but I was the one who told him to do it. I felt the remorse afterward. People say the Heavy Rain is more of a movie than a game. I agree to a point, but taking away the interactivity it DOES have leaves it as just a shell.
