Today during PlayStation Experience, publisher Adult Swim Games and developer VIDEOCULT announced that platformer Rain World is coming to PS4, alongside the additionally announced PC and Mac versions, sometime in 2017.

Never heard of Rain World? No problem — here’s everything you need to know courtesy of the game’s PlayStation page:

You are a nomadic slugcat, both predator and prey in a broken ecosystem. Intense, bone-crushing rains pound the surface and make life almost impossible for most of the year, but the dry season has just arrived. Grab your spear and brave the industrial wastes, hunting enough food to survive another hibernation cycle, but be wary—other, bigger creatures have the same plan… and slugcats look delicious.

Inspired by the aesthetics and simplicity of 16-bit classics, this survival platformer requires fast-paced sneaking; both of your own prey and past the larger predators looking to make you their meal. The impressive enemy AI ensures that each ravenous predator in your path will be cunning, vicious and always hunting you.

A specific release date and price point were not revealed. Below, you can check out the new trailer:
