InFAMOUS Second Son: great power doesn’t always come with great responsibility

InFamous Second Son

In InFAMOUS: Second Son for Sony PlayStation 4, you play Delsin Rowe, a man with unlimited power. It’s the power to get away with anything, and Delsin not only knows it, he loves it. Delsin’s attitude gives InFAMOUS: Second Son a unique feel – playful, subversive and just a little bit scary.

It was our job to create an immersive experience that captured this feeling, giving prospective players a taste of the game, and building excitement around the launch without giving too much away.

Real miracles may come few and far between, but this Christmas we decided to see if our luck was up to scratch. Could we turn a few hundred pounds into £1,000,000 for charity?

Statistically (ahem), we knew we were up against it, so we kicked it all off by donating £1,000 to our sponsored charity, Rainbows Hospice, then as ‘twas the season, we turned to our Twitter followers for a little help. The first 100 followers to Tweet #XmasMiracle received their own personal scratch card Vine video. Once revealed by Father Scratchmas, any winning scratch card amounts were donated to Rainbows.
