Rain World From Adult Swim Games Is Releasing Later This Month

The consistently unpredictable people at Adult Swim Games are creating a new 2D adventure called Rain World – Fate of a Slugcat, and it’s coming out later this month.

Duck Game and Robot Unicorn Attack weren’t strange enough, so now we’re all being treated to “a survival platformer in a brutal, ruined ecosystem“ about a…slugcat? In a nature-driven post-apocalyptic wasteland, you’d think a slug-anything would be on the bottom of the food-chain, so expect some fast, under-pressure chase sequences.

“Explore a vast world of over 1600 rooms, spanning 12 diverse regions filled with ancient secrets and undiscovered dangers.”

The last few games from Adult Swim have been great, if not completely bizarre, but definitely worth checking out next time you’re feeling weird. While Rain World has just been announced for PlayStation 4 and PC for March 28th, I’m guessing it’ll be more of the same, which isn’t a bad thing.


Official Press Release

Bone-crushing rains. Large, hungry creatures. A defenseless slugcat trying to find its kin. From Adult Swim Games and Videocult, survival platformer Rain World arrives on PC and PlayStation 4 March 28.

As a small slugcat separated from your family, you must fend for yourself in a mysterious industrial wasteland the flood has carried you into. Relying on stealth, wit, and well-timed pounces, learn the rules of your new environment to keep fed while staying out of harm’s way. Both prey and predator, the creatures in Rain World’s living ecosystem follow their own survival instincts, learning from each encounter.

Climb through the ruins of an ancient civilization, evade the jaws of vicious predators, and discover new lands teeming with strange creatures and buried mysteries when Rain World releases March 28.

Add Rain World to your wishlist on Steam.

Pre-orders for Rain World on PlayStation 4 begin today, March 8, for Europe and March 14 for North America.

Follow Rain World on Twitter and Facebook for the latest updates.
