“Kathy Rain might just be the best adventure game I've played in a long time.”
9/10 – Destructoid

“I had a splendid time with Kathy Rain, and thoroughly enjoyed a game where I couldn’t see where it might be heading. Kathy proves a complex and interesting character, and, well, I thoroughly enjoyed playing it. Which is the simplest recommendation of them all.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“A remarkable achievement from a first-time developer, Kathy Rain is an unexpectedly personal gem about a heroine who proves she belongs with the genre’s other big names.”

About This Game

Set in the 90's, Kathy Rain tells the story of a strong-willed journalism major who has to come to terms with her own troubled past as she investigates the mysterious death of her recently deceased grandfather. Armed with her motorcycle, a pack of cigs, and a notepad, Kathy begins to delve into a local mystery surrounding her hometown that will take her on a harrowing journey full of emotional and personal turmoil.

As she follows a trail of clues he left behind, questions emerge… What was Joseph Rain really looking for that night all those years ago? What turned him into a mere shell of a man, confined to a wheelchair? What secret did a suicidal young artist take with her to the grave, and why are so many people in Conwell Springs going mad? The truth is dark and sinister…

I'm sad that this game has yet to sell better (see article here.

I pre-ordered it just by the looks and the atmosphere and was not dissapointed!

If WadjetEye's Blackwell-series has the praise, this game should have that too!

+ Kathy is a detailed and likeable character, a bit of a rebel but a rebel to whom everyone can relate
+ the game is atmospheric, with detailed environment
+ the control scheme is a bit different than other point-and-click games, but you can get used to it in a few minutes
+ the mystery at the beginning is clear and it is good to raise your appetite to move on with the game

If you liked any of WadjetEye's games (Gemini Rue, Blackwell, Shardlight, Technobabylon etc.), you should give Kathy Rain a chance too!

Also, the devs made "Kingdom", which is also a great game!

Heh. I like you kid.

This review will not contain any spoilers.

Kathy Rain is a point & click adventure game developed by Clifftop Games. You play as Kathy Rain, a third year journalism student who fancies herself as a bit of a detective. After the death of your grandfather, Joseph Rain, you decide to return to your hometown of Conwell Springs for the first time since you were a child to attend your grandfather’s funeral. After the funeral, Kathy begins investigating a local mystery which has been left unsolved for a decade, as you investigate you’ll learn more about Kathy’s past as well as the people in the town.

Worth a mention: It took me just shy of five hours to complete the story but it seems like the average completion time is eight-ten hours, probably due to the achievements in the game that I didn’t get.

When I first saw Kathy Rain (the game) I was unsure about the fact that the game is in a 4:3 aspect ratio. Thankfully KR is visually very good. The 4:3 aspect ratio works well (the window is automatically sized to your monitor with black bars on either side in fullscreen or you can just play in a 320x240 window) and the pixel art graphics are fantastic. There’s not a huge amount of detail in the characters (not really an issue) but the backgrounds for the different locations are absolutely fantastic. During dialogue a portrait for the character speaking is displayed on-screen, these are also fantastic and their facial expression changes so it’s appropriate for what they’re saying which is a nice touch.

KR is, at its heart, a story-driven game and so it’s obviously incredibly important that KR has a solid, engaging plot. Luckily for those interested in playing the game, it does indeed have an excellent, well-written plot. What begins as a simple investigation into a decade-old incident quickly becomes something far more intriguing and sinister over the course of the five days the game takes place in. To uncover the truth you’ll find yourself speaking to many different residents of Conwell Springs which also means you’ll get to visit a fair few locations. I can’t really say much more than that without spoiling the game but it really is an enjoyable story, particularly if you’re a fan of detective stories like I am.

The actual gameplay consists of solving puzzles. I found them to be quite challenging as someone who doesn’t usually play point & click games but genre veterans may not find them too difficult (there are hints in the game for how to solve them anyway). The puzzles aren’t just thrown in for a bit of gameplay here and there, they are actually used to advance the plot which makes solving them far more enjoyable. Some puzzles will require the use of items you have previously collected from somewhere which are stored in your inventory. While it is possible to miss these items you can always go back to the location they are in later to collect them if you need them.

As well as a small bag which serves as your inventory, Kathy also carries around a notepad. The notepad is used by Kathy to note down anything which comes up when speaking to a character that needs some more information, i.e. something you’ll need to talk to another character about. As you uncover more information about certain things Kathy will automatically update her notes so she can ask the other characters for more relevant information. The notepad is also home to telephone numbers which you find in the phone book at your grandma’s house.

So, more about interacting with other characters. For the most part you don’t have any dialogue choices when interacting with other characters (apart from choosing when to ask them what from your notepad, though that doesn’t really have an effect) and when you are given the opportunity to choose what you want to say it doesn’t really make a difference to the overall outcome. Personally, I don’t think this is a problem, KR has a semi-linear story (I say semi because you have some control over what order you do things in) and the story is good enough so that it manages to be entertaining even with little player influence over the story.

What’s super important when it comes to story-driven games? The voice acting! The voice acting in Kathy Rain is excellent. There were a few times in the game where I thought there was too much of a gap between one character’s line and then the next character’s line but that’s not a huge problem. The actors themselves did a fantastic job at bringing the game’s characters to life, they’re very compelling performances and they make the story feel real.

Circling back to the whole semi-linear story thing, you can decide what locations to visit and when (you have to have unlocked the location before you can visit it mind you but you unlock new locations as you progress through the story). When Kathy leaves a location she hops on her customised Corley motorcycle and you’re then presented with a screen where you can choose from any of the locations you’ve unlocked. As you near the end of the game some locations will become greyed out (you can’t return to them) but this only happens for minor locations where you’ve already exhausted the location’s relevance to the plot. For the rest of the game you’re able to choose where to go when and since there is some wiggle room when it comes to what order you can do things in this does give you a tad bit of freedom.


Kathy Rain is an excellent point & click game with an intriguing story, compelling characters, fantastic voice acting and a great visual style. If you’re a fan of story-driven games then this is definitely worth checking out.

Kathy Rain takes place in 1995 and stars the titular character, a no-nonsense young woman who returns to her childhood hometown of Conwell Springs after many years after hearing news of her grandfather’s death. As Kathy explores her old hometown she begins to uncover a secret of the town’s past, one that her grandfather tried to uncover himself years ago which left him a broken shell of a man.

It’s not hard to see that Gabriel Knight was a major influence for Kathy Rain. The game opens up with Kathy catching up with her Grandma in the old family home just like Gabe did with Grandma Knight in GK1. The game is also separated in days just like the Gabriel Knight games. Kathy Rain does a good job taking GK’s influence and doing well with it. One could even say it’s a quality spiritual successor.

Kathy Rain has a really good atmosphere, channeling that sense of slow burn mystery that made GK1 such a great game as well getting across the feeling of a lived in small town. The art is of the same high quality as the recent WadjetEye games and its soundtrack of ambient guitar tracks also helps the feel. Writing wise it’s mostly quite good. Most of the primary main cast such as Kathy have depth and the mystery is an interesting one that will keep you engaged. I’ve seen some people here complain that the ending doesn’t solve anything, but I thought it was fine considering what road the narrative went down. Dave Gilbert, the head of WadjetEye, was the VA director and it shows. The voice-acting is some good stuff, namely Kathy’s VA who also did Max Lao in Technobabylon.

The puzzles are mostly pretty good. It’s more akin to the Blackwell series’ puzzles were the main focus is investigation, dialogue, and simple inventory puzzles. Kathy even has a notebook like Rosa does. There is only one puzzle that I say sucks because it’s this big riddle type of puzzle that due to some awkward wording is way harder than it should be. (Like for an example ignoring that the narrative has a given another meaning to a phrase in the riddle that seems like that it would be more relevant than the actual solution.)There is another puzzle that while not obtuse, rather falls into the sociopathic adventure game protagonist solution problem, which is a bit jarring for a game that’s trying to be more human and serious.

Overall Kathy Rain is yet another addition to the high-quality adventure games of recent years. I’m definitely up for more of it if that happens.

Very good point and click adventure game. Fans of Blackwell Legacy Series will find the style and game play familiar as well as the supernatural elements. I personally hope for a sequel.

What starts off as a intriguing mystery game soon turns a lot creepier and darker than you expect. There's also a huge amount of the game that can be interpreted in many ways, which I think really keeps the mystery going. Ultimately, it is more than about what happened to her grandfather, and a lot about Kathy struggling to put the past behind her.

The game itself, while a little shorter than some similar games (I initially found it remeniscent of games like The Longest Journey, and there's quite a similarity between the two protagonists), has a mostly strong story. There are a couple of things that could have been elaborated on, and some that seemed to go on for too long, but that's the same with any game like this. The way you do things is not completely rigid, but you don't get the same aspect of control over everything - for example, while you occasionally get the options for different responses to people, most of the time it seems to have no future effect.

The puzzles in the game are quite well thought-out, though at times they are not obvious, and you might find yourself reaching for a walkthrough once or twice. There's nothing that doesn't make sense once you've done it, but a few (such as getting the clinic receptionist away from her desk) aren't what most would think of doing.

There also seems to be a running theme of mental illness throughout the game, and it's great to see it dealt with outside of the usual serial killer/unintelligible rambler tropes. Kathy is clearly troubled by the difficulties of those around her, despite her attitude, and it's subtly played throughout the game as she turns from a feisty no-s**ts-given biker chick, to a vulnerable woman whose past is possibly leading her to the same fate as her mother.

Overall, I would absolutely recommend this game. It brings up more emotions than you'd initially expect, and while quite short, the story is fantastic and it's well worth the money.

Finished this and am really hoping there will be a sequel or two.
I came to really like Kathy ; she's a gutsy, "anti hero" but in no way resembles Nancy Drew
(?? I saw some outside comments and couldn't figure out why they made such a connection. Oh wait, because she's a female detective.
Good grief.)
There are plenty of smart female detectives ; mostly British, but they do exist!
I really recommend the game; it is very different and kept me engrossed.
It has a few loose ends which makes me think and hope that there will be future Kathy Rain games.
Oh yeah, I loved riding around on the

Kathy Rain is the type of game that didn’t have to do much to make me want to play it. It’s a point and click game where you play as sassy Kathy Rain trying to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding your grandfather’s death. It’s a point and click detective game with a female lead plus retro pixel graphics; on the surface, it seemed like a no-brainer to me. However, upon delving into the game itself I found myself a bit conflicted. Everything about the game is top notch, from visuals to voice acting. The gameplay is smooth as are the controls, it’s the story that lumbers. Depending on a player’s taste, it will be either hit or miss.

I admit when I jumped into this I was eager to play a detective game, working along with Kathy to figure out clues and solve the mysteries. The first half of the game does indeed invoke this tone. You’re in control of Kathy Rain, a journalism major who has a bit of an attitude problem. Despite being a college student, Kathy doesn’t seem to ever go to class, instead opting for being lazy and partying so she has ample time to be a detective on the side. She learns from her roommate, who is the complete opposite to Kathy personality-wise, that her grandfather has passed. Kathy becomes determined to figure out what happened to her grandfather, finding clues to his past as a war veteran as well as the shady history of the town he lived in. With a quick wit and a sharp tongue, we help our hero investigate the situation, finding out that it extends even farther than just dear old granddad all while learning more about Kathy’s troubled upbringing and family issues.

And then things got weird. While I had a suspicion things would take a supernatural twist, I was hoping that they wouldn’t, but they do. Around halfway through the game it becomes clear that this isn’t just a simple detective story, there is something other-worldly happening. I won’t spoil exactly what it is, however I couldn’t even if I wanted to. The ending of the game left me very confused to the point where I have more questions than answers. Between Kathy having weird dreams and talking to ghosts, the game tries to squeeze in character development by having her overcome inner demons that had been holding her back. I commend the story wanting to do this, however I personally didn’t feel the need for the supernatural aspect to do this. The final chapter of the game unfortunately feels rushed because of it, trying to tie up the loose ends of the plot with her grandfather and the creepy town while also giving Kathy her epiphany. While the game seemed to be trying to end in a way satisfying for players, it also left itself open for sequels.

Story aside, the game itself is very simple. It’s a point and click adventure game so all you need is a mouse to play, though there are a couple of moments where you need to type something in with your keyboard but it’s not a major gameplay aspect. Using your mouse, you control where Kathy goes and what she does, clicking on objects and people to interact with them. You have an inventory system where useful and important items are collected for later use. You can inspect items in your inventory, like to read a newspaper clipping, or combine certain items to either make a new item or effect another item, like using Kathy’s lighter on a Bible in the church. The game has a few puzzles but nothing very complicated and usually Kathy will tell you enough details to figure things out. The only issue I had was that Kathy herself moves rather slowly when she walks, you also can’t double click a door to instantly go through it so you’re forced to wait for Kathy to walk everywhere.

The game is beautiful, I adored the graphic style and the choice to go with pixel artwork. It’s very simple yet done very well, lovely shading work and the character animations all seem very natural. Each character also has a portrait as well, since it might be hard to see the details of their faces on their character models due to the pixels. The backgrounds are rich, fitting well with the dreary tone of the game. There is also full voice acting and it’s done very well. Kathy has a witty line for almost everything so feel free to click away at items in the game. Every character you interact with has a voice and plenty to say making it easier to immerse yourself in the game. The music also helps with this, the soundtrack is perfectly fitting to the gritty backdrop of the small backwater town.

This is a game that packs a lot of punch in a small package, while on the surface it may seem like just another point and click game using simple pixel graphics, Kathy Rain proves itself to be the total package. The writing is amazing, Kathy is an engaging character full of humor and common sense and while I may not have found the story to be perfect, I enjoyed it none the less. The truth is, there could have been flying dogs from Mars that came and took over the town, Kathy herself is such a great main character I would play anyway. She carries this game on her shoulders as she rides down the highway on her pink motorcycle. While the price tag may seem a tad high, you won’t be disappointed if you add this to your library. It’s a fun experience, a well made game and also Steam trading cards and achievements. I hope that this title is only the first in many more games starring Ms. Rain.

Kathy Rain is perfect for nostalgia-seekers and newbies to point-and-click adventures. I grew up playing these kinds of games, and it was fun to play that kind of style of game again. Kathy Rain's story kept me intrigued the whole way through, and the characters (both development and voice acting delivery) was spot-on. There were some puzzles that were easy and some that were refreshingly challenging. I would highly recommend this game to anyone who's interested. You're going to want more by the end of it.

I loved this game. I was weaned on the early Sierra and Lucasarts adventures a a kid in the 80s, and stuck with that genre until it petered out in the 90s (with some notable exceptions). The recent adventure game revival has been exciting for me in theory, but none of them have really engaged me like some of the games I cut my teeth on once did (granted, as a kid, it was easier to capture my attention than it is now). This game was a masterpiece of writing, art design and voice acting. It wasn't tough, in fact I played it through in one (six hour) sitting. But those hours passed quickly because I was so taken with the story and the characters. There are none of the absurdly difficult combine-every-item-you-have-in-every-possible-order style puzzles, and the puzzles you will face are generally easy (barring one insanely obtuse, but thematically appropriate, one toward the end), but this is a good thing. That is to say the puzzles won't make you pull your hair out and get sick of the game for a week, only to come back to it later and repeat the process.

I think this succeeds so well because it is a game for adults, and given its setting in the 90s, probably for people who lived through that period (ie. former adventure game addicts like myself). There are 'adult themes' and colorful usage of swear words, etc. Even though it's a fairly quick game (I finished it in 6 hours, as I mentioned) it's absolutely worth the $15 price point, and I hope a lot of people buy this so more games of this caliber, within this style, will continue to be made.

Enjoyed it far more than any of the other new, flashier and 'prettier' adventure games. This one provides a memorable thematic experience that will stick with you the way the Colonel's Bequest or Space Quest III (to name a couple) once did. I have intentionally not said anything about the plot, because it's better to come into this game with an open mind, not knowing what to expect next. A+.

This game's 90s heritage goes much deeper than a 4:3 window and 16-bit sprites. Its storyline invokes the 90s as well, with magical mental illness and a Very Special Episode plotline tossed in for pure shock value. Like the television fantasy dramas it draws inspiration from it also promises more than it ever delivers on, wrapping up in a mundane, though not unsatisfying, ending.

That said, the above is what makes the difference between a reccommendation and an enthusiastic reccommendation. Whatever you go into Kathy Rain looking for you're probably going to find it. I forgot to turn off the voice acting when I started (an instinct learned from Blackwell games) and the experience was much the richer for it. I don't know if the developer has the desire to attempt more in their next game, but I'd trust them to achieve it.

Great game with a very engaging story. I finished the whole thing in one six hour sitting because I just couldn't turn it off without seeing what happened next. I don't usually enjoy point and click adventure games because being stuck trying to unravel some moon-logic puzzle most for most of the gameplay isn't my idea of fun. But such instances are mercifully rare and easily forgiven in this case. I hope to see a sequel.

Any Gabriel Knight fans out there?

It was many years ago when I first played the first part of the Gabriel Knight series, "Sins of the fathers", which already had a few years under its belt back then. And it was wonderful. This adventure had a great story, believable characters, a realistic setting (at least in the beginning), great (sometimes quite hard) puzzles, and a writing with some well balanced mixture of excitement, mystery and humour to it. GK1 immediately became my favourite adventure, and it stayed that way ever since.

But what does this have to do with Kathy Rain? Why would I bring this up?

Because KR almost immediately created the same feelings I had when I played GK1 back then. Almost from the title screen it felt like playing a Gabriel Knight game. But this was not only subjective - there are objective resemblances between those two games. And it was not just the visuals:
- Both KR and GK1 have a great mixture of humour and mystery, without the humour spoiling the mystery
- In both games the main character has a sidekick that does some part of the research
- Both main characters are sarcastic, somewhat messy writers riding mororcycles
- The family history plays a major role in both stories
- Both games play roughly at the same time (GK1: 1993; KR: 1995)
- Both games share a large set of common settings (like a church, a police station, a graveyard, a bar, and the scene in the mausoleum ...)
- Both games pretty much start off with the main character visiting his/her grandmother :)

So... is KR a rip-off?

No, definitely not. While the resemblances may be uncanny, KR develops its own dark story that occasionally makes you laugh, and other times gives you the creeps, and stays strong until the (semi open, yet satisfying) end. The puzzles can be quite challenging, but not too difficult and shouldn't get you stuck. And if you pay attention, you most probably will always know generally what your current tasks are and how you might complete them.

So basically: Kathy Rain is a great adventure. I would really love to see a second part, and it was wonderful to play something I would call a well done hommage to my favourite adventure of all time :)

Kathy Rain is awesome - and with some really good powerful, scary moments!

It really shows what one can do using Adventure Game Studio, and fits right in up there with the Wadjet Eye games, Resonance, & Gemini Rue (which I haven't actually finished yet...)

It's wonderful story, well crafted - with great use of sound resources (and a great cast!) - presented through a game that is easy to navigate and, well, easy - the puzzles are nice and logical, fit the setting well enough, and simple enough to not break the pacing. (I did get stuck on the computer username one by overthinking it, but not badly... Back in Riven I missed the "door behind the door" for something like 3 days of actual play between classes!)

Anything else I could say would be spoilers - and that would be a shame; I came into this game knowing almost nothing about it, and it was a fantastic experience! Play the demo, go from there. >_>

I really loved this game, I liked that it was a awesome story and we got some nice Character Development in Kathy. Yea, the "Supernatural" parts of the Day 5, I thought were more in her head, as it was her getting over the anger and stuff she was carrying, so it kinda worked out. I would like to see a sequel maybe if the game was able to get more sales and stuff.

Almost as good as the Blackwell games.

I don't post alot of positive reviews, and honestly I was a bit on the fence about this one. Don't misunderstand, I enjoyed this game more than most of the adventure games I've purchased. It's just so hard not to compare it to the blackwell games. It wasn't as long, wasn't quite as interesting, had a few technical glitches, and cost more.

The game was very polished, and the voice acting was good. The main characters had plenty of flavor, although the supporting ones were a little uninspired. Of course, it's hard not to love a feisty girl with a custom chopper. A few of the interaction icons could be improved (as in "oh that's supposed to be an eye, not a boobie. I guess 'examine' is more reasonable than 'flash' at grandpa's funeral").

The resolution issues were troublesome, and the only real reason I considered a negative review. It took alot of struggling to get the game fullscreen with the right aspect ratio (4:3). I have an awkward TV setup, so part of that was probably my hardware, but I noticed several other reviewers who complained about this too. It was certainly playable stretched to 16:9, but the characters all looked a bit chubby and the bike looked a little comic. (It sounds like the forums found fairly simlpe ways to work around this on video setups that aren't weird like mine.)

I honestly did enjoy this one. Aside from Blackwell games, this is one of the best adventure games I've played in years (although cognition probably would've beat it out if they hadn't had all the horrible unity graphics freezes). I'm certainly going to watch for the others in the series.
