Rain World – A Game About A Living Ecosystem
Sounds peaceful right? WRONG! In Rain World, a living ecosystem is at work: Hungry creatures search autonomously and independently for something to sink their teeth in―but should you encounter them, your behavior will be remembered….
You are a slugcat. The world around you is full of danger, and you must face it – alone. Separated from your family in a devastating flood, you must hunt for food and shelter between terrifying torrential downpours that threaten to drown all life. Climb through the ruins of an ancient civilization, evade the jaws of vicious predators, and discover new lands teeming with strange creatures and buried mysteries. Find your family before death finds you!
I think what caught my eye the most was I the pixel monsters were animated. Each creature looks and feels for lack of better words “alive” and I like the concept that there going with in this game. There’s also a neat feature that make the creature react towards you depending on your previous interaction with them.
Inspired by the simplicity and aesthetics of 16-bit classics, this survival platformer requires fast-paced sneaking, both upon your own prey and past the jaws of hungry predators. Each ravenous foe in your path will be cunning, vicious and always on the hunt – eager to sink their teeth into you, or even each other. As a small, soft slugcat you must to rely on stealth and wit rather than force: learn the ecosystem and turn their strengths to your advantage. Maybe then you can survive… Rain World!
Honestly I’m liking what I’m seeing so far and I’ll be keeping my eye on this title in the future. Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below.
