Linux stretch goals announced!
Release date: Fall / Winter 2014
Kickstarting now!

Linux stretch goals announced:

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.


* 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:

Thanks for looking!

For everyone coming here to comment about when it's releasing, Stay tuned! It will be releasing (the devs say) about 4-5 months from now. All the levels are done, just some cut scenes and other plot elements are left, along with the usual bug fixes.

If you have any more questions about it, there's a 15 minute interview that pretty much answers them:
