Quantic Dream co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere has said to CVG that any criticisms towards the Quick Time Events in Heavy Rain are unfair. He was speaking after the game made an appearance at GamesCom two weeks ago.

“I think they’re unfair. I think the QTE’s we have in our game are very different from the ones even in Shenmue, which I also think was a great game,” claimed de Fondaumiere.

He also admitted that the game was one of the more interactive games in many years.

“All the trailers – that’s me playing it. Everything we’ve shown so far, each screen, is all actions that you actually do. So it’s one of the more interactive games that I’ve seen in many years.”
