Quantic Dream’s experiment in cinema-gaming, Heavy Rain, comes out next month, and to help you get into the moody mood, Sony has started an online mystery game called "Four Days”: The Heavy Rain Online Experience that will play out over the next three weeks. Each week, there will a certain number of daily puzzles, tasks, etc. that you’ll have to complete to progress to the next series of events.
All of this investigating will lead you along the path towards uncovering the identity of a serial killer. How this particular killer relates to Heavy Rain’s Origami Killer isn’t clear, but I’m sure there will be plenty to glean from the experience to make it worthwhile for anyone planning to pick up the game.
I just signed up for the game, and am currently on the first challenge. I like it when developers take the time to extend an experience beyond the confines of a game, and I’m definitely looking forward to following this thing along and seeing where it leads. Am I alone?
