Sony's Rain is Beautiful and Melancholy | IGN

Take shelter.

by Keza MacDonald

Often the best thing about the announcement of a new generation of consoles is the late flourish of curious games that appears on the current ones. Announced last year at a Sony Gamescom conference rich with cool and unusual new titles, Rain is an interesting, quietly atmospheric PSN exclusive from Sony’s Japan Studio; there are glimpses of ICO and The Unfinished Swan in its creative, puzzley platforming and melancholy ambience. It’s about a boy who follows a spectral girl into an alternate dimension where he’s invisible unless he’s in the rain – a dimension filled with phantom monsters that chase and stalk you through the night.

The story is too old to be commented.

An artistic and beautiful game. I sense a touch of ICO and Unfinished Swan in this game.

I'm singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feeling
I'm happy again
I'm laughing at clouds
So dark up above
im singing! singing in the rain!

Hey, are you making fun of her?

Sometimes, I forget about this game. And I'm okay with that. It's like a pleasant surprise when I remember all the games coming out that I forgot about.
