Rain World

Entrant 2017



You are a nomadic slugcat, both predator and prey in a broken ecosystem. Intense, bone-crushing rains pound the surface and make life almost impossible for most of the year, but the dry season has just arrived. So grab your spear and brave the mysterious industrial wastes searching for your lost family, seeking shelter from the rains and hunting enough food to survive another cycle of hibernation. But be wary—other, bigger creatures have the same plan... and slugcats look delicious!

Inspired by the aesthetics and simplicity of 16-bit classics, this survival platformer requires fast-paced sneaking; both when hunting your own prey and avoiding the larger predators looking to make you their meal. The impressive enemy AI ensures that each ravenous predator in your path will be cunning, vicious and always hunting you. Do you have what it takes to survive Rain World?
