Yes we are alive! And so is Rain World! We just wrapped up showing the newest build at Sony's Playstation Experience and wanted to share some quick Rain World highlights before hopping on a plane back home. Top on the list is this new teaser trailer here:
Look familiar? For this little Sony Exclusive PSX teaser we brought it all the way back to 2014, re-shooting the original kickstarter trailer with the new Rain World and showing off a ton of never-before-seen content.
So much has changed from 2 years ago, I can barely even believe it! Here's the original for comparison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVXfrSLeLNo
That 24 frames per second probably wouldn't cut it in 2016, huh?
You may have also noticed a little tease of some gorgeous illustration work in that trailer too. Our artist Del has been working non-stop for the past year, at a completely unreasonable pace, bringing our narrative and world to life in ways we never thought possible. We are extremely excited for you to see her work (SOON!)
Speaking of Del and PSX! Rain World had the honor of being one of the Playstation Experience 2016 collectible foil trading cards, featuring an illustration from Del herself, and wow just look at those beauties. I can't tell you how amazing and intimidating it is to see our little characters show alongside games like The Last Guardian and Persona 5:
No pressure right??
But hey its not all conventions and collectible cards and things like that. We've been grinding like mad these past months. The game is wrapping up, and that means that Joar finally had some time to go through the over 1600(!!!) rooms, adding an incredible level of visual detail and bringing that extra layer of polish that most would consider unreasonable. But, hey, unreasonable level of detail is what we do!

or this crude masterpiece:
Okay, laptop battery is dying so I'll have to sign off here. More news soon though!
Thank you as always for your amazing continued enthusiasm (and patience!), Rain World literally could not have been made without it, and we can't wait to show you the fruits of our hard work!
