Quantic Dream‘s CEO and Heavy Rain’s director David Cage wants the games industry to ‘grow up’.
In an interview with Gamasutra during gamescom Cage said that the time is now for the industry to escape its ‘Peter Pan syndrome’.
“I think we should have more courage in our industry and take more risks, because I think this is what the industry needs now. I mean, how many first person shooters can you make? How many monsters/aliens/zombies can you kill in games? … We need to grow up,” he said.
“I often think that the industry suffers of the Peter Pan syndrome. It’s the fact that we don’t want to grow up, so we stay kids. But there is a moment where you need to grow up as an industry. And you cannot keep up with the Peter Pan syndrome. You need to grow. And I think this is the right time,” he added.
Previously, David Cage said he is “not interest in giving [players] ‘fun’. I want to challenge their minds.”
Beyond: Two Souls will release sometime in 2013 exclusively for PS3.
