Our PC videos of Rain World

We were sent a review code for Rain World about 2 weeks ago but we could never find the time to tell you a bit about it. Until today that is. Sadly, Videocult's game has failed to convince us, due to frustrating design choices and imprecise controls that often lead you to your death. Eveytime you die, you must go back to the previous checkpoint, a hiding place where you were able to hibernate. Since finding those spots can be tricky, you're more or less bound to fail many times before being able to save your progress again. Some might find it challenging, but as for us, we just stopped playing after a while, which is a real shame as the game world and the animations look very nice. Be warned then.

Looks great!!! The animation is superb. Is there a demo or something? I'm not sure about the controls as You mentioned above.

apparently it's pretty brutally hard and requires you to drop any notion of predatory style gameplay in favor of being prey. you die in one hit. you are vulnerable. if you keep playing it like you're going to win by being aggressive you will die...a lot. lol

weirdly the mixed reviews stating how hard it is is making me want to play it more. maybe in a sale.
