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?
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.
