February 5, 2014 | By | Add a Comment

With only 8 days to go on their Kickstarter campaign (already fully funded), Boston based developer Rain World has released a new game play video for Project Rain World, featuring their iconic Slugcat.

Rain World is set in an abandoned industrial environment scourged by a shattered eco-system. Bone-crushing intense rain pounds the surface regularly, making life as we know it almost impossible. The creatures in this world hibernate most of the time, but in the few brief dry periods they go out searching for food.

You are a lonely nomadic slugcat, both predator and prey in this land. You must hunt enough food to survive another cycle of hibernation. Other – bigger – creatures have the same plan.

Inspired by the aesthetics and simplicity of 16-bit classics, the gameplay consists of platforming and fast paced sneaking; both sneaking on your prey and sneaking in order to avoid larger creatures. A large focus of the development has been on enemy AI: they are cunning, vicious and they are always hunting you.

Rain World is currently in development for PC and Mac, and can be found on Steam Greenlight

Check out the Kickstarter campaign and become a backer.
