Neil LaBute on Heavy Rain

aila labute neil 031607 e1268174248626 Neil LaBute on Heavy RainNeil Labute was recently interviewed by PlayStation about how Heavy Rain inspired his short film “How Far Would You go For Love?”

It appears that not only is Heavy Rain revolutionising the gaming industry, its also having effects on the outside as well.

What were your thoughts on Heavy Rain?

I’ve never really been a hardcore games person, I usually watch my son or my friends play. But what I’ve seen from Heavy Rain is that it is a much deeper emotional experience [than most other games]. There’s always heavy interaction when it comes to games, but the idea of having this emotional component to it was interesting to me, it was something I hadn’t seen. There was this sense of responsibility to that universe.

That’s always something I’ve been interested in for my work and part of the questions I ask as I try to write. So to see a person like that [in David Cage] designing games and adding that layer to traditional gameplay was attractive – and I wanted to help get that word out with the film.
