Linux stretch goals announced!
Description
Release date: Fall / Winter 2014
Kickstarting now! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rain-world/project-rain-world

Linux stretch goals announced: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rain-world/project-rain-world/posts/723027

Rain World is a challenging survival platformer set in an abandoned industrial environment scourged by a shattered eco-system. Bone-crushing intense rain pounds the surface regularly, making life as we know it almost impossible. The creatures in this world hibernate most of the time, but in the few brief dry periods they go out searching for food.

You are a lonely nomadic slugcat, both predator and prey in this land. You must hunt enough food to survive another cycle of hibernation. Other - bigger - creatures have the same plan.

Inspired by the aesthetics and simplicity of 16-bit classics, the gameplay consists of platforming and fast paced sneaking; both sneaking on your prey and sneaking in order to avoid larger creatures. A large focus of the development has been on enemy AI: they are cunning, vicious and they are always hunting you.

Gameplay:

* Sneak, climb, and pounce your way through an exotic alien landscape full of hidden secrets and undiscovered dangers.

* Nimble controls and unique physics-and-code based animation gives characters a natural fluidity of movement and intuitive weight, for lighting quick high-wire action.

* Intense, primal predator encounters will challenge your reflexes. Limited resources and the constant impending threat of rain will test your nerve. This is not an easy game!

* Open-ended sandbox style narrative lets you make life-or-death choices... and deal with the consequences.

* Co-operative and up to 4 player competitive gameplay: deathmatches, endurance, waves, custom challenges, etc.

Rain World is currently in alpha and we are kickstarting the final leg of development, expecting a release date of fall 2014. For more information, please see: http://kickstarter.com/rain-world

Thanks for looking!

If you guys want updates check out their Kick starter page. I am assuming that the final product of the game is delayed though

I would like to know if they're still doing this and not going to drop out on us like a certain game we all funded. I would just like to see some more of what they have done, the original release date is closing up and I would like to know if it's going to be delayed or what?

I like the look of this

That's fine. Better we wait and have the game live up to our lofty expectations than have it release on time and below expectations.

Nope, it won't. See the latest Kickstarter updates. End-2014 was a projected ETA based on the old game engine written in Lingo. They have since ported it to Unity, and therefore will likely be taking much longer to release.

I wonder if this game will still see release in 2014.
