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...

Rain World is ready for a March 28 release on PC and PS4

You know we're getting close to Rain World's launch when Videocult is trading in gifs for a trailer. Sure enough, the ecosystem-survival platformer is headed to PC and PlayStation 4 on March 28. We'll soon be sneaking and leaping for dear ...

Rain World looks riveting in this new batch of gifs

Rain World, a game about not getting eaten, is still coming along. I've got the gifs to prove it! But first, writing on the PlayStation Blog, artist and programmer Joar Jakobsson put into words why this title continues to captivate us (and ...

Been a while since we've seen Rain World's good ol' slugcat

Rain World met its Kickstarter funding goal almost three years ago, and it has been largely out of the spotlight since then. Heck, the last time we wrote anything about the oppressive, waterlogged world was like a year and a half ago. But i...

New Rain World footage justifies the title

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...

Yes! Rain World is coming to Vita, PSN

Last week we learned Adult Swim Games had picked up and planned to publish Rain World, among other cool games. I have been unfettered in my enthusiasm for Rain World, which stars a slugcat who goes around stabbing other weird creatures, an...

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...
