Rain World is a survival platformer set in an abandoned industrial environment ravaged by a broken ecosystem. You play as a slugcat, the world around you being full of danger, and you must face it alone. Separated from your family in a devastating flood, you must hunt for food and shelter between terrifying torrential downpours that threaten to drown all life. The creatures in this world hibernate most of the time, but in the few brief dry periods they go out in search of food. You must hunt enough food to survive another cycle of hibernation. Other — bigger — creatures have the same plan. Boston developers, VideoCult, say the game is inspired by the simplicity and aesthetics of 16-bit classics, and requires fast-paced sneaking, both upon your own prey and past the jaws of hungry predators. Rain World features a vast world of over 1600 rooms, spanning 12 regions.
Check out the trailer from the PlayStation Experience last year. Along with the harrowing soundtrack and frantic gameplay, Rain World is looking a strong indie title.
Rain World hits March 28th on PS4.
