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.

About the game


What's up?
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane I am sorry nostalgia or not, those shenmues characters look like shot... This is truly embarrassing (20 minutes ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus locations, and not really a game in development. So much time hiding a game, and this is wath the well known perfections Yu Suzuki shows with a straith face? Fucking kikckstarter strikes again! (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus game, and it just had some dead eyes faces plasted to the mocaped bodies, it was trully bad. And the deserted city streets. This seems like a talented modder modeling of a "2000's type" of shenmue (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @AndreasZ94: too low? this is the 2007 where a fraction of AAA games had a facial mo-cap rig. The main characters are the low bar of what we expect of decent facial expressions and lip-sync in this (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus dreamcast faces are like 2 or 3 generations ahead. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @AndreasZ94: it looks like they took a dreamcast game, made all the assets look pretty. And that's it...i'm ok with this. Lol. (7 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 Im not expecting top of the line stuff because the budget is very low by AAA standards but they need to do better when it comes to facial expressions (7 Hours ago)
