Heavy Rain Press Kit

Heavy Rain was one of 2010’s most critically acclaimed titles for the PlayStation 3 receiving exceptionally high reviews for its gameplay and thrilling plot.

It garnered many accolades which included winning GameSpy and IGN’s ‘Best PS3 Game of 2010’ as well as CNN’s Game of the Year for 2010.

Heavy Rain was developed by Quantic Dream and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. The story focuses on a serial killer known as the Origami Killer. The Heavy Rain Press Kit was created with this theme in mind.

Possibly one of the most original Press Kit design in recent times, the kit is made of a hard cardboard with a unique fold open design tied together with a piece of twine string.

The Heavy Rain Press Kit is printed with fold lines and is made to feel like a worn out parcel. As you unwrap it, there is a sense that you are unwrapping an origami until you see a blood stain (don’t worry, its printed).

Unfolding more flaps reveal in-game portrait images of the four main protagonists from the game.

Included inside are two jewel disc cases with a copy of the Heavy Rain game disc on top and an Asset Disc tucked underneath.

No paper or reading material is included, although the Asset Disc does have Press Release information, images and videos from Heavy Rain.

Heavy Rain is one of my personal favourite games on the PlayStation 3 from 2010. When I learnt of this Press Kit I went chasing after it. Seems harder to find nowadays so I’m not sure if production was low or if many owners are just unwilling to part with it.

The Heavy Rain Press Kit was given to journalists and media for review, but a similar package was also given to VIP guest at the Heavy Rain launch event.

A stylish and engaging Press Kit that ties in nicely with the whole theme of the game. A really well thought out Press Kit. {60}
