Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
|What is the total number of titled epilogues or ending sequences in the game?||Heavy Rain (PS3)
18. Fortunately, you can get multiple epilogues every time the game is completed, depending on the actions and fate of each of the main characters. If you have the option to save your progress turned on, you will see the titles of the epilogues you have unlocked in the Chapter Select screen once the credits are finished.
In a 2009 interview, writer/director David Cage stated that he would like people to play the game only once, because, like life, you make decisions and have to live with them. However, many players will try to see all the endings of the game, especially to get the "All Endings" trophy.
|Ethan hides from the police and the press by taking refuge in a motel. This is also where he meets Madison. When the police raid the motel, Madison may have the chance to call Ethan's room to warn him, if she remembers his room number. What is Ethan's room number at the motel?||Heavy Rain (PS3)
207. Room 207 is on the third floor of the motel, at least by US standards. The game was developed by the French studio Quantic Dream, and this is one of the many places where the European design shows through. Despite being in a US city, the motel numbers the floors according to the European tradition of ground floor, then first, then second, instead of first, second, third.
|What is the name of the character who is a bored, rich, party-throwing socialite and is a suspect in the Origami Killer investigation?||Heavy Rain (PS3)
Gordi Kramer. Gordi is a copycat, who killed Joseph Brown in an imitation of the Origami Killer. His wealthy father, Charles, bribed the police and Gordi got away with murder.
|What is the name of the nightclub owned by Paco Mendez, someone with ties to the Origami Killer?||Heavy Rain (PS3)
The Blue Lagoon. If Madison gets to the nightclub, there is a scene where she is forced to strip at gunpoint, which is close enough to rape (or at least attempted rape) for some critics. However, the emotional state of the character is such that the player knows the kind of danger she is in, and as a result the scene is more dramatic than one where the character may "only" die.
|What is the name of the playable character who is addicted to Triptocaine and is the FBI profiler assigned to the case?||Heavy Rain (PS3)
Norman Jayden. Norman's Triptocaine addiction makes for some interesting gameplay sections, as the screen blurs and tilts when he experiences withdrawal symptoms.
Norman conducts investigations using a futuristic Added Reality Interface, or ARI, which is composed of glasses and a glove. This makes it possible to find and review clues in an augmented virtual reality.
|What is the name of the playable character who suffers from insomnia and is a journalist investigating the Origami Killer?||Heavy Rain (PS3)
Madison Paige. Madison was the only one of the four playable characters who was performed by multiple actors. She was played (full body motion capture) by Jacqui Ainsley, a British model, however her dialogue and facial motion capture work was done by Judi Beecher, an American actress.
hit by a car. Jason wanders off from his father in a crowded shopping center. His father frantically searches for him, only to find him on the other side of a street. Jason rushes to reunite with his father and is hit by a car.
This chapter in the game is the closest to the real life inspiration behind "Heavy Rain". Several years before the game was released, writer/director David Cage lost track of his son Quentin for a few minutes in a crowded shopping mall. Quentin was found safe, but those few minutes of terror are the origin of the game.
Shaun Mars is the boy abducted by the Origami Killer during the game.
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The game may avoid the well known landmarks, but there are clues, such as the arrivals and departures board in the train station scenes, that make it clear that the game takes place in Philadelphia.
However, it does not rain nearly as much in the real Philadelphia as it does in the one in the game.
Philadelphia was chosen because writer/director David Cage liked the films of M. Night Shyamalan, who often films in and around that city.
Scott Shelby. Scott was the kid who lost his brother. He wanted to see what the fathers of the victims would do to save their children. In a poll, Carter Blake was voted most likely to be Origami Killer because he always seemed a bit unstable. Grace Mars was number two because people thought that she may have been holding a vendetta against Ethan for losing Jason in a car accident.
|Why does the origami killer commit these crimes?||"Heavy Rain"
To test the fathers. The Origami Killer had an abusive father. When he was young his brother got trapped in a pipe filled with water. The young killer went to his father to help, but he ignored him. His brother ended up drowning. This is where the killer got his inspiration to put the children in a well that was slowly filling with water until they finally drowned.

|It is possible to find out who the Origami Killer is before it is revealed in the game. What piece of evidence was essential to figure it out?||"Heavy Rain"
a golden watch. When Norman Jayden went to the police station, he found out that the watch was rewarded to honored policemen. When Ethan Mars got into a fight with the masked Origami Killer, you may have noticed he was wearing a gold watch. This meant that the killer was a former cop.
|What kind of flower is placed upon the chest of the Origami Killer's victims?
orchid. It was revealed that this symbolized the killings as not being personal. This meant that the Origami Killer didn't have a vendetta against the children.

Blue. When investigating Mad Jack's garage, you will eventually find blue paint spilled on the ground, along with tire tracks from the car and orchid pollen in the air. This indicates that the Origami Killer has been to the garage.

20000-25000. To be excact, his score is 21105.
ARI is short for Added Reality Interface, and is not only used for investigation. As seen throughout the game, ARI can be used for fun and games too, and has many interesting aspects to it.
Johnny Winters. This is revealed when you interrogate Lauren Winter in the chapter "Sleazy Place". You will get more information about the disappearance of her son, if you choose the right options when meeting her.
Eight. Between the years 2009 and 2011, the Origami Killer murdered eight boys between the age of 9 and 13, all drowned. It is possible that Shaun Mars becomes victim number nine, if nobody comes to his rescue.
In the gun grip. Killing Brad is one of the tougher choices to make, seeing as he has two daughters himself, and he even shows you a picture of the both of them before you have to make your choice.
You will get a a bronze trophy for both of the choices, making this chapter one of the chapters you WILL have to replay to get the platinum trophy.
Eight. Norman Jayden can die four times in the chapter "Mad Jack", once in "Fish Tank", once in "Solving the Puzzle, once in "The Warehouse" and once in the epilogue "Smoking Mirrors".
That is more than Madison Paige (six), Ethan Mars (four) and Scott Shelby (four).

Besides the saw, pliers, and scissors Ethan can also cut his finger off using a knife or a hatchet. The machete is not an option.
Parents. Rain is always the way the Origami Killer's victims die, they drown in rain. The Origami Killer always lays origami and an orchid by his victims.
