If you’re a fan of artsy, stylized story games such as Journey and Flower and you don’t mind getting a little bit wet, you should start getting ready for Sony’s Rain. At last year’s Gamescom, Sony teased Rain as a game where you play as a little boy who can only be seen when he’s in the pouring rain. The trailer demonstrated this visually appealing and potentially touching game which showed gameplay footage to the tune of Debussy’s Clair de Lune. That, combined with the sound of rain falling in the background.
We haven’t heard a peep from Sony about the new game since then, but Playstation Japan has released new screenshots of the game to show that the people at C.A.M.P are still working on it, and the screenshots look more like an art piece than an actual game, visualizing the world the game takes place in, before and during the rain:
I’m still not quite sure if these are actual screenshots, or just concept art. The game has managed to blur the lines between traditional and digital art. the game looks like it has potential.
Other than the new screenshots and the trailer, not much information has been released for the game, especially about which Sony system it’s going to be released on. I suspect it will be for the PS3 or PS4. As much as I wouldn’t mind the game being for Vita, stylized art games such as Rain is best experienced on a large screen at home, rather than in a car or on the subway.
I trust the developers of the game (C.A.M.P) will slowly trickle more information about the game as it comes closer to the release date.
