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...

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...
