Project Rain World! Prey / Predator? Survive - Coming 2017!

Discussion in 'Updates / Logs' started by Zipo Deathlite, Oct 14, 2016.

  1. Ever wondered what it would be like to play as a cat, well how about a slugcat! The name is very misleading however because this is a very fast paced platforming game that dabbles in what it truly means to be predator or prey as you take your best shot of surviving in Rain World.

    Here is some nice "Junk Music" as the developer calls it to enjoy as you look through this thread. (or you know, it sorta doubles as a trailer)


    "In the ruins of an ancient alien civilization, a lonely slugcat vies to hunt and survive deadly rains in a harsh closed eco-system." Rain World

    Background
    This project was successfully funded on kickstarter and reached the funding goal in just 3 short days. It just shows if you have a great concept for a game and are willing to put in the effort to create a thorough and complete kickstarter page, you have a great chance of getting funded.

    Apart from the abstract looking graphics, this game has a few unique concepts. One is that you yourself are hungry and must eat various creatures in the environment to survive your hibernation cycle.

    The enemies in this game are equally unforgiving as your equally delicious yourself!

    Gameplay
    The movement style is one of the more unique attributes, the style of motion feels much more like flying than typical left and right movement. I would describe it as if you have springs on your feet. It really captures the springy motion you would expect playing as a cat. (I speak from experience from trying to catch my cats! They are so easy to approach until they realize your trying to catch them lol)

    The game promises to be extremely difficult with bosses and enemies that might challenge you with their AI. Mix that with the limited resources and the fluid motion that can push your reactionary abilities to the max for one entertaining game.

    While rain world was originally estimated to be released in December 2014 (yes the game is old! They actually started development 3 years prior to this, must be from putting their heart and soul into it haha) The game has an estimated release date of 2017

    One final bell or whistle, whichever makes the most noise.
    This game is 4 player co-op! xD


    Original Launch Trailer.
