Nothing Proves Heavy Rain's Inherently Adult Nature Better Than The Strip-Tease Scene.

At the time we described it as "shady and a little uncomfortable". But we thought it was great for those exact reasons. And thus Quantic Dream have confirmed to EGTV that's exactly the reaction they were aiming for.
"We had a couple of people who felt uncomfortable watching the scene which is perfect because this is exactly what we wanted," said Quantic Dream's David Cage.

"I mean you can't pretend to trigger different type of emotions and just focus on adrenaline and fight and competition and frustration. You need to go through different emotions and showing this scene in particular was for us a test to see if we could make people feel like Madison, having to get Naked to do a striptease in front of this ugly guy, and obviously it worked because people felt very uncomfortable," Cage added.

"It depends, if you want to do toys for kids with video games then you certainly shouldn't do that, but if you pretend to do an adult experience for a major audience, then there's nothing you can't do and you certainly shouldn't count on me to censor myself and say, oh, I can't do this I don't want to do that because it's too sensitive it's too controversial or whatever. I'll do what ever it takes to tell my story," he concluded.</blockquote>

At this point, we're not even concerned about the quality of Heavy Rain. We know it's going to be one of the most ground-breaking games of next year. No, what we're concerned about is the ratings boards, and how they're going to try and adapt Heavy Rain because of the medium.
