The newest "art game" to hit the PlayStation Network is Rain, from SCE Japan Studio, Acquire and PlayStation C.A.M.P. It tells the story of a boy who meets a girl. Well, at least it tells a story of a boy who's trying to meet a girl, but mysterious circumstances force them further apart at every turn. One of those circumstances happens to be that they're both stuck in an alternate dimension and are rendered invisible. Is Rain something you should consider adding to your digital library? Or are you better off staying dry and avoiding this title altogether?
The PlayStation Network's newest "art game," Rain, has launched and is set to tug at our invisible heartstrings. But what else would you expect from a game about an invisible boy trying to save an invisible girl from invisible monsters?
This year, we have been talking a lot about indie games at E3 2013. These interesting titles tread paths that the “me too” AAA games won’t dare to tread. They are magnificent productions of art using light and sound coupled with interactivity to tell stories like none other. Perhaps one of the most artistic games of the show was Rain, a puzzle/horror game set to come for the PlayStation 3 in the fall of this year.
The first six minutes of the new PSN title Rain reveals a ghostly boy looking for a similarly ethereal girl. It looks to be a very haunting new title for the PSN.
Sony Japan has updated the official site for the video game Rain with new images showing the differences between the regular world, and the world that appears when it rains.
