Lick It Good: Rain World Now Has Adorable Lizard Tongues

By Graham Smith on November 17th, 2014.

You’d think I’d stop being impressed by Rain World‘s physics animation system, but I’m entertained to the nines every time its developers put out a new Kickstarter update. The latest shows more of the lovable slugcat’s grimdark world via a new trailer, plus GIFs showing new water tech, weapon-throwing and lizard tongue assaults. It’s all beautiful.

Rain World’s New Engine Makes Animations Even Cuter

By Graham Smith on October 6th, 2014.

Good morning, friends! Are you looking out upon a blustery Monday morning and listening to the rain pelt against your window? Perhaps what we need to keep our spirits high is a different kind of Rain World. One populated by adorable slugcats, mesmerizing bat swarms, and deadly lizards propelled by physics animation systems. This Rain World has continued its progress onto a new engine and the latest Kickstarter post – titled Mega Bat and Lizard GIF update! – is worth the time it takes for these lovely animations to load.

DevLog Watch: Cogmind, Fritz, Tiny Wizard

By Graham Smith on May 12th, 2014.

Games: a bit varied, really.





> Sorry, I had caps lock on. I've been trying to contact you for a fortnight, but a sinister threat has kept us apart. These "bank holiday Mondays" can only be the work of the Indie Cabal, hoping to keep their ranks closed by preventing the dissemination of hot, new GIFs and links to in-development games. But they can't stop our work. Come, dive quickly below. This message is beyond their reach, but not for long.

Rain World Pup Trailer Is DEVASTATINGLY Adorable

By Nathan Grayson on February 13th, 2014.

I’ve been a bit under the weather lately (which is good, because I was expecting to return from Las Vegas dead), so I’m only just now getting around to posting about this videogame trailer from two whole days ago. Oh, the shame. This is the Internet, where time moves at a blinding (and arguably blind) pace, and the phrase “out with the old, in with the new” is already out because we found something new to replace it. While I haven’t checked, I imagine I entirely missed Rain World‘s hype period, Early Access beta, launch, avalanche of glowing reviews, and jumble of “overrated” grumbles in the following e-weeks. Now we’re probably on Rain World VII or perhaps even the massively multiplayer MOBA Surgeon Sim spin-off. But here I am with this ancient video of the original Rain World’s pups and NEVER MIND ALL THAT OTHER STUFF I JUST SAID OH GOODNESS SO CUTE.

New Rain World Trailer As Beautiful As Previous Trailers

By Graham Smith on February 5th, 2014.

Slugcat in the snow, where do you go, to find something you could eat?

With every new trailer, Rain World moves a little further towards being the indie game I’m most looking forward to this year. It’s a challenging platformer set in a dripping alien world, in which you control Slugcat, a bounding white acrobat in an ecosystem of tasty, swarming bats and vicious lizards. Oh, the lizards – look at that one’s tongue!

It’s beautiful and physicsy and ecosystemy and there’s a new trailer below, showing more of its world than ever.

Since Nathan first covered it, Rain World has comfortably met its Kickstarter target and been accepted through Steam Greenlight. To celebrate, its small team released new details about the manner in which its slugcat protagonist and world of bat-things and lizard-meanies operate, along with a new trailer.

Oh Goodness, Please Look At Rain World

By Nathan Grayson on January 14th, 2014.

Cara caught Rain World on her journalism parasol back before she became gaming’s foremost Adventure Journalist, and she declared herself “deeply in love with” its physics-based art style. Now, all these months later, with the game newly on Kickstarter, I believe that Rain World’s little love bug slugcat ghost creature has bitten me as well. Clearly, Cara and I will have to fight tooth and nail for its affections. I’ve got deceptively strong nails, but Cara’s teeth may well prove their kryptonite. Perhaps if I use my nails as a sort of projectile… hmmm. Alas, I might be doomed. But no matter what, at least my darling Rain World will go on, wriggling and worming stealthily as it does. Check out a gorgeously moody video below.

Drip Feed: Rain World

By Cara Ellison on March 20th, 2013.

Is Rain World just codename for Scotland?
Doing my duty finding you brilliant and beautiful things has never been more pleasurable than when I found news of Rain World on the TIGForums today. It is a little sneak-action platformer with physics-based creatures, and I am in deeply in love with the art style.
