You are a nomadic slugcat, both predator and prey in a broken ecosystem. Grab your spear and brave the industrial wastes, hunting enough food to survive, but be wary— other, bigger creatures have the same plan... and slugcats look delicious.

UPDATE: Rain World 1.5

Hello friends and slugcats! After many months, we present to you: Rain World v1.5



Main new features include:

2 new playable characters, corresponding to different playstyles and difficulty:



THE MONK - “Weak of body but strong of spirit. In tune with the mysteries of the world and empathetic to its creatures, your journey will be a significantly more peaceful one.”



THE HUNTER - “Strong and quick, with a fierce metabolism requiring a steady diet of meat. But the stomach won’t be your only concern, as the path of the hunter is one of extreme peril.”


New Multiplayer arena modes:



COMPETITIVE - Up to 4 player competitive mode. Catch bats and spear creatures (and each other!) for points. Players can choose from rooms that have been unlocked from finding yellow level tokens in the single player campaigns. Increasingly diverse wildlife will populate these rooms as you discover more blue tokens.

SANDBOX - Up to 4 players, put together custom scenarios using rooms, items and creatures unlocked from the single player campaign. Creatures and items can be placed in a room as desired and then played through with a various point values, etc, attached. This mode is to experiment and learn about the behaviour of creatures players encounter in the world.

Over 30 new multiplayer levels to be unlocked!


Updated bestiary, with a host of new creatures and items available to every character. Escape from new and dangerous predators! Feast on delicious new prey! Or perhaps... bond with new friends?


Plus of course a host of new secrets to be found, new strangeness to experience, and hopefully generally a much smoother Rain World experience!


(Happy hunting!} ʕ●.●ʔ

Each ravenous foe in your path will be cunning, vicious and always on the hunt – eager to sink their teeth into you, or even each other. As a small, soft slugcat you must to rely on stealth and wit rather than force: learn the ecosystem and turn their strengths to your advantage. Maybe then you can survive… Rain World!
