Switch Port Report: Rain World

Nic Rowen's review of Rain World seemed sympathetic but sad, which makes sense given that the game does a lot to invoke those two feelings. The bad news is, he was also feeling pretty disappointed when he said "I feel so badly for...

This week's Rain World update addresses common complaints

It's a shame about Rain World's brutal reputation, but I'm still keeping an eye on it to see how things progress from here. Videocult has already responded with a patch "intended to accommodate some early player feedback and polish assorted...

Review: Rain World

I have a known fondness for difficult games. When applied correctly, adversity and challenge can raise a game to another level. I've gleefully lapped up the absurdities and frustrations of titles like Darkest Dungeon and the Binding of Isaa...

More Slugcat gifs? More Slugcat gifs

What's that? You didn't get enough Rain World gifs this week? What's that? Timmy is trapped in a well, rehabbing from that awkward back spasm in mop up? What's that? Old Man Tim is going to be lights out tonight in his stead? What's th...

Slugcat gifs? Slugcat gifs

It's been a while since I've espoused my love for Rain World. It looks even smoother in this interesting Kickstarter update, as the game has transitioned to Unity. The update is a good read, but if you're just here for the gifs, well, I fee...

A day in the life of Rain World's adorable slugcat

Rain World has met its Kickstarter funding goal and, with a week left, is close to its first stretch goal that would increase the likelihood of the game being ported to other platforms. Namely, Linux, but Wii U, Vita, and just about every ...

Rain World meets its Kickstarter funding goal

While I don't think there will be any topping the expressive .gifs of Rain World, this new footage captures the kinds of tactics necessary to outmaneuver predators in one continuous session that's worth watching. Those flourishes in the an...
