David Cage explained the Heavy Rain finger cut scene

From his official Twitter account he said: “Do you remember that scene in Heavy Rain where you have to cut your finger? This is what inspired it: two of my fingers were cut in an accident when I was 6. While driving to the hospital, I could see the tip of my finger hanging off, the bone inside, my hand covered in blood. The whole time, I wondered if I could one day play piano again. I composed and recorded the soundtrack in the opening credits of Detroit. You can’t imagine how glad I am to still be able to play music today…”

It seems game developers not just machines who make products to entertain us. There is emotions, memories and more they put into their work. Even the story was upset, it’s great to see there is always more to imagine when we play these great stories.
