Heavy Rain is an interactive video game published by Quantic Dream about a child kidnapped by a serial killer known as ?The Origami Killer.? The player takes control of four different characters with a vested interest in the case: Ethan Mars, the father of the kidnapped child; Madison Paige, a journalist who gets close with Ethan; Scott Shelby, a private detective searching for the Origami Killer; and Norman Jayden, an FBI detective sent to track down the killer. The game is largely cinematic, with the player mostly controlling where their character moves, and action sequences utilizing quick-time events.
