Stealthy slugcat stalks PC, Mac and Linux in Rain World


Stealthy indie platformer Rain World concluded its Kickstarter campaign yesterday with $63,255 in funding. Developers Joar Jakobsson and James Primate earned enough from the campaign to add Linux to the game's list of platforms, which also spans PC and Mac. Though it didn't go into specifics on its Kickstarter page, the development duo noted that it hopes to bring the game to consoles as well.

The game place players in control of a white slugcat in a retro-looking industrial complex, leaping through areas to search for food and avoid predatory creatures. A recent trailer for the alpha-version of the game also shows off the slugcat's little pups, which players will need to guard from the hostile world. Rain World arrived on Kickstarter just one month ago and has since been greenlit for distribution on Steam. Rain World is expected to launch this December.
