- Summary: Assume the role of a nomadic slugcat, both predator and prey in a broken ecosystem. Grab your spear and brave the industrial wastes, hunting enough food to survive, but be wary— other, bigger creatures have the same plan... and slugcats look delicious.

It can feel like you hit brick walls at times. Some parts feel unfair and it explains only basics in the beginning, leaving you to figure the rest out... and yet that's what makes it worth every penny; remove any of the difficulty and you don't have Rain World.
This game certainly isn't for everyone, and requires a lot of patience; this is the hardest, and yet most simplistic in rules, survival game I've played so far. It's a wonderful combination of exploration and survival, and it certainly rewards you with noticeably-different zones with their own challenges to overcome. It's brought out my curiosity and its art, music, storytelling, and overall world feel so immersive. Its world is HUGE, and I applaud the visual artists and level designers for taking so much time.
The enemy designs are distinct and they each have their own abilities. Mastering slugcat's slipperiness and relying on your own will to adventure will come to you. Experiment. Try to eat anything you can find. Encourage risks. This game will reward you when playing around with the tools given to you; the knowledge you have is worth learning.
Bugs are small, by the way; hadn't noticed them when playing around.… Expand

Mar 3, 2021What I liked:
+Despite not being monolithic, the world is vast and consists of regions and sub-regions interconnected to each other. DetailedWhat I liked:
+Despite not being monolithic, the world is vast and consists of regions and sub-regions interconnected to each other. Detailed and immersive.
+Gameplay is unique. There are almost no permanent power ups/upgrades. Only things that can make you progress are experience and item/map knowledge.
+Rain is elaborate and established game mechanic. For example, when the rain begins, you have still time to reach shelter, since rain can't hit you in enclosed spaces but you can be drowned since rooms are flooded. What I try to mean is that it is not just a simple "Game Over" screen appearing when the timer runs out. You may have more than one minute still, depending on your position.
+Advanced movement tricks are cool, thanks to physics-based nature of the game.
+Animations are detailed and controls are fluid.
+Visuals are splendid. I can't mark the exact locations due to spoilers but they were obviously made by a touch of true artist.
+Sound design is solid and music kicks in cleverly. Tracks are fitting to specific areas they are used in.
+Background story, lore and other kind of data are obscure and there for you to dig. The further you go, more complex it gets.
What I disliked:
-Couple of fixed camera issues in certain levels.
-Overseers (hologram-like guides) are useless and this is very important since their job is to direct you. You may have ended up in places where you shouldn't be or you may feel lost and exhausted to continue.
-Scavengers are wacky.
TLDR: I would recommend this to only other stoic god gamers.… Expand
Jul 2, 2017I love this game.
It's kind of a mix between another world and dark souls. I don't find the controls clunky as some said : you need toI love this game.
It's kind of a mix between another world and dark souls.
I don't find the controls clunky as some said : you need to learn how to move your slugcat, but after a while, the controls reveal how precise they are and you can move exactly how you intend to move. You just need to learn. And that's all what this game is : learning, patiently. Each time you die, you learn something, and won't die as easily the next time.
And I love how it looks. Every screen is unique, with a lot of tiny details that makes it feel like a real place, a dreadful one though. The slugcat animations are a joy to look at, and everything moves smoothly, there's a real feeling that everything you see is alive.
This is a demanding game, and not for everyone, but for what it is, it is somehow perfect. A true little gem.… Expand
