David Cage has told VG247 that he doesn’t make videogames because he’s after money. If that were the case, his titles would probably be multiplatform efforts. The Heavy Rain mastermind says he makes games because it’s his passion, and because he has a story to tell.
I put a lot of myself in the games we make. I don’t do work for hire. I don’t make games to make money. I make games by passion, because I want to share something, because I have something to tell.
That’s the right attitude to have because one can argue that Cage’s titles have an honest edge that other developers may not be willing to risk because of the constant thought of what sells. But it’s also great that Heavy Rain made Sony over €100 million – and even better that Sony didn’t force Cage to develop a sequel to the title. For that, Cage says, “I really thank them for that.”
