Soaked to the spirit

Ever since we infiltrated the tanker in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, we’ve loved it when it rains in games. Be it a sudden sprinkling in Hot Shots Golf, or a torrential downpour in MotorStorm: Apocalypse, few atmospheric events can send a shiver down your spine better than a good tropical storm.

Japan Studio’s upcoming, er, Rain is based upon a pretty solid premise, then. As detailed in the behind-the-scenes video below, the game – which sees you assume the role of an invisible child in a waterlogged world – aims to convey the sensation of loneliness. Both the audio and art are absolutely exquisite, so we’re desperate to dip our toes into the title later this year.
