About Rain World

About this game

Developed by Videocult and published by Akupara Games.

In Rain World, you'll become a slugcat who gets separated from its family during a devastating flood. In order to get back to them, you'll need to avoid the myriad of dangers all around you — from the torrential downpours to the terrifying jaws of vicious predators.

Discover the Land

Whilst you travel across the ancient civilisation in search of your family, you'll discover a whole new land that is teeming with strange creatures and buried mysteries. 

Play Smart...

As a slow, small, and soft slugcat, you'll have to rely on your wits and stealth skills to survive! Learn about the world around you until you can use their weaknesses against them. This phenomenal 2D platformer takes inspiration from the simplicity and aesthetic of the 16-bit classics. 

Dynamic World

An ever-changing ecosystem of predators and prey helps Rain World remain fresh as you enjoy the playthrough!

A Vast and Beautiful World

During your journey to find your family, you will explore an enormous world of over 1,600 rooms spanning 12 diverse regions, each filled with secrets and dangers.

Fast-paced Slugcat!

Just because you're an adorable slugcat, doesn't mean you can't do some great platforming. In Rain World, you'll find yourself going through the motions with fast-paced platforming, as you'll need to act quickly lest you want to be eaten.

Rain World V1.5 Updae:

This phenomenal update adds a bunch of things to the game, such as two new playable characters, a multiplayer arena that features competitive and sandbox modes, over 40 new unlockable multiplayer rooms, and a host of new secrets to discover!

A harder survival game with 2d graphics that will challenge you to do well or perish to it.

Tiaxy

One of the more challenging 2d survival games out there that can make you despise it before you might start liking it, if ever. You'll have a lot of deaths and possible frustration thanks to the fact that some of these deaths come from the game having predators in places you didn't see, making it seem unfair aswell, bad rng mostly, and having to go back to the shelter you rested at last, which can mean a lot of time loss. Still, if you play your cards right, learn and improve as best as you can, risk when you know you can and are able without too much negatives, it can genuenly be an enjoyable experience overall trying to survive at the pretty much bottom of the food chain as a small slugcat. And if it does frustrate you, take a break from it, recoup and try again later, clear your head before you jump back in later on to give it a try again. It also has a story aswell surprisingly, besides the one you originally seen with wanting to find your family when starting a new campaign, which you probably won't understand till you are able to understand the beings that want to talk to you and make you be able to understand them. This doesn't mean the story becomes automatically clear to you however, if you want to learn more of it though, I recommend watching vids of it that explain it all in a more understanding manner. Overall, the game is a blast all things considered, the controls are solid, especially when you understand the different mechanics that can be used to help you survive these harsh lands better, graphics are pixelated, but have a unique feel, and the sounds and music are just right and I definetelly recommend it a ton if you into the genre and challenge it provides.

Don't give up! Give good... performance.

The game doesn't do much hand holding outside the start of the game. I won't say that's good, but it's better than holding your hand too much. It's a survival game, use your brains to survive, and you'll find a world with lots of lore and interesting, if sometimes aggrevating, gameplay.

A masterpiece. The art and atmosphere is exceptional. First few hours might be frustrating and hard to understand what is going on but after spending some time with it, you'll start to understand what kind of a game this is and ... it's just amazing. Explore and don't worry about death - it's a part of the experience.

According to steam the game has remote play but the game doesn't have it in the base game . You need the dlc to play co-op.
