E3 PREVIEW: LET THE RAIN FALL DOWN
Rain is an action adventure game where you control a little boy who is chasing a girl who can only be seen in the rain. At first glance of the game at the Sony press conference, I thought the game was about ghosts. Apparently, I was wrong based on the limited demo that I played.
As you wander the stormy world, you realize that others can see you too in the rain. You must carefully make your way past dangerous monsters by hiding under cover where you become invisible and jumping into puddles to form distractions before sneaking to freedom. As you play, text flashes across the screen to progress the storyline and acts as the narration of the game. Many questions still arise that still need answers such as why can you only be seen in the rain? What happened to the little girl? What is this strange world? The game is easy to play and the outlying questions make me interested to play more.
I will warn you, if you have a tiny bladder like me, this game will make you feel like you have to pee. Fear not, you can get through it for the dreary beautiful world and unique storyline.
Rain will be available on the PlayStation 3 in Fall 2013.
