Rain World Keeps Getting Prettier And Prettier

It’s easy to dismiss the ideas of slug cats. I mean, who in the right minds would cram something so fluffy together with something so goshdarned slimey? The people behind Rain World [official site], that’s who. And strangely, as this new alpha footage proves, it actually all works really honkin’ well.

Lick It Good: Rain World Now Has Adorable Lizard Tongues

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

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

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

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

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.
