Rain World takes place in the ruins of an ancient alien civilization. Here, a lonely, nomadic slugcat hunts for food and tries to survive.
Bone-crushing, intense rain pounds the surface regularly, making life almost impossible. The creatures in this world hibernate most of the time, but in the few brief dry periods they search for enough food to survive another hibernation cycle.
Inspired by the aesthetics and simplicity of 16-bit classics, gameplay consists of platforming and fast-paced sneaking both on your prey and in order to avoid larger creatures. A key focus in the development of Rain World is enemy AI: it's cunning, vicious and always hunting you.
Rain World has been in development almost three years. It will be released for PC and Mac. A Kickstarter campaign is in progress until February 13, 2014, and the game has been Greenlit. It's expected to be released in Fall 2014.
