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.

News! Updates on Rain World for Switch, PS4 and v1.7 for PC

Hey Slugcats! Happy Holidays!

As you may have seen, there's been a flurry of new Rain World activity the past couple of weeks:

Rain World Switch

After many many many emails, DMs, requests, demands, phone calls (???) and online petitions, we teamed up with Adult Swim Games and Akupara Games to bring slugcats to the Nintendo Switch! It has been a loooooong process to make it all work and we are quite enthusiastic to finally have it in the hands of players. (Yes, even that guy who called me!)

Rain World Switch is out now in North American regions and will be launching soon in Europe and Japan. So if you like your slugcats portable, please go check it out!:

Rain World PS4

As part of this new arrangement, Akupara Games has also taken over managing the PS4 port code as well, and we have been able to FINALLY bring current content updates to our Rain World players on PlayStation 4. It's absurd that its taken this long, it was factors totally out of our hands, but we never forgot about you. We hope you enjoy the Monk and the Hunter!

Rain World v1.7

Further, over the past year and a half of porting work, there have been plenty of minor bugfixes and such, and we were even able to sneak in a *small* (but important!) content update for these new launches: v1.7.

We're currently working through patches for issues on the Switch and PS4 versions, but when we're certain everything is fixed up and it wont corrupt everybody's save files (or make modders throw their PCs out the window), we'll be launching v1.7 for PC as well! Can't wait for you to see it.

Happy Holidays and best wishes from the Videocult team! Hope you all have a great 2019 :)

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!
