[lies down] ya’ll i really like rain world and i can’t stop thinking about it
i’ve played through it like 2 and a half times? i played through the game as the monk, survivor, and what i could as the hunter, who has a limited amount of cycles for LORE REASONS and also it makes it a score attack mode. they’re also a bit stronger and faster than the other two, and, more importantly, there are way more and way harder creatures to deal with.
i think this game has made me realize how terrified i can get of bugs. i’m very glad we do not have centipedes the size of us irl
there’s so much cool stuff in this game. SO much cool stuff. maybe too much!!! i watched this video recently and it went in depth into the dev’s process and basically everything they show here can apply to all the creatures they’ve made. it’s super impressive: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVntwsrjNe4
also i really wish this game had, like, an “old-school” instruction manual or something. one that gives you the same kinda basic information 8/16 bit games would give, because it is jarring when the game teaches you basic stuff in game, esp at the beginning. like, the last thing i wanna learn in this alien world from a some yellow eye thing is that holding x will make me leap across gaps. if you don’t wanna hold my hand then so clearly reach for it, game. esp since, well, the game never teaches you about swimming, which is the worst mixture of not knowing what’s happening and not being able to see what’s happening. maybe some basic info about some creatures with an artist’s drawing that’s a loose interpretation of them
also i’ve been playing with mods!!! there’s a small but prolific group of people making a bunch of cool stuff for this game. one significant one is a co-op mod, which i played with someone yesterday!!! it’s really cool!!! there’s some bugs but it works really well, provided you stick together, because you share the same screen. also it’s def harder than just playing by yourself, but you can effortlessly give the other player a piggyback and carry them through a tuff area if you need to. the shenanigans are great though.
also there’s a mod that lets you change the color of your slugcat’s body and eyes and you can pretend it’s your own OC slugcat exploring the ruins… of rain world
honestly, though i’m like, near the end of my obsession with this game, i think. aside from mods and maybe playing the hunter once or twice and also looking up fanart all the time and listening to the music often i’m pretty much done. i’m ready to move on… but i don’t wanna say good bye…
