'Rainswept' Gets Release Date - Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 14, 2019 @ 8:15 a.m. PST

Rainswept is a murder mystery adventure game, dealing with themes of love, relationships and unresolved trauma.

Detective Michael Anderson enters the small town of Pineview to assist the local police force with a seemingly simple case - A couple is found dead in their kitchen. The locals believe it to be a case of murder-suicide, their speculation fueled by rumors of the turbulent nature of the couple's relationship.

Is it just idle gossip, or is there some truth to the rumors?

Assisted by the empathetic Officer Blunt, Rainswept aims to settle its audience into the daily rhythm of a small-town murder investigation by having them explore the streets of Pineview, interrogate suspects and solve puzzles in point n’ click fashion.

All while Detective Anderson’s own unresolved trauma threatens to jeopardize the case. Players will also experience Chris’ emotional story with Diane through flashback sequences, joining them in pivotal moments of their lives.

And the closer his own sanity will be pushed to the edge.


Key Features:

  • A Story-First Approach emphasizing dramatic cut-scenes, dialogue choices, dream and flashback sequences.
  • Multiple Perspectives. Relive key moments off Chris and Diane's love affair as they get to know each other and fall in love.
  • An Opinionated Cast of interactive small-town personalities, persons of interest, uncooperative government officials, choices of dialogue and a few personal demons.
  • Surreal and Stylish 2D Artwork to complement Pineview's part-rain swept, part-sun washed streets with dramatic cinematography, gradient lighting and parallax environments.
  • An Original Score by micAmic of The Cat LadyDownfall and Lorelai fame.
  • Coffee, cigarettes and pines.

Rainswept will launch on February 1st, 2019 for PC/Mac via Steam.
