Today, publisher Adult Swim Games and developer VIDEOCULT announced that its highly anticipated action/adventure platformer, Rain World, is set to release for PS4 and PC on March 28, 2017 at the price point of $19.99 USD. To accompany the announcement, the pair also released the launch trailer for the title.

In Rain World you are a slugcat who has been separated from your family in a devastating flood. In a world full of danger that you need to face alone, you must hunt for food and shelter between terrifying torrential downpours that threaten to drown all life. Throughout the game you will climb through the ruins of an ancient civilization, evade the jaws of vicious predators, and discover new lands teeming with strange creatures and buried mysteries. Your goal is to find your family before death finds you

Inspired by the simplicity and aesthetics of 16-bit classics, Rain World is a survival platoformer that requires fast-paced sneaking, both upon your own prey and in order to evade the jaws of hungry predators. As a small slugcat, you will have to rely on stealth and wit rather than force, and learn the ecosystem in order to survive each ravenous foe in your path who will be cunning, vicious, and always on the hunt: eager to sink its teeth into you, or even each other.

Here’s a rundown of the game’s key features:

  • Sneak, climb, and pounce your way through a dynamic, ever-changing ecosystem of predators and prey

  • Explore a vast world of over 1600 rooms, spanning 12 diverse regions filled with ancient secrets and undiscovered dangers

  • Nimble movements and procedurally generated animation gives slugcat a natural fluidity of movement and unique sense of weight

  • Intense, primal predator encounters will challenge your reflexes

  • Limited resources and the constant, impending threat of rain will test your nerve
