Set in the 90's, Kathy Rain tells the story of a strong-willed journalism major who has to come to terms with her own troubled past as she investigates the mysterious death of her recently deceased grandfather. Armed with her motorcycle, a pack of cigs, and a notepad, Kathy begins to delve into a local mystery surrounding her hometown that will take her on a harrowing journey full of emotional and personal turmoil.

As she follows a trail of clues he left behind, questions emerge… What was Joseph Rain really looking for that night all those years ago? What turned him into a mere shell of a man, confined to a wheelchair? What secret did a suicidal young artist take with her to the grave, and why are so many people in Conwell Springs going mad? The truth is dark and sinister…

Kathy Rain reviews and comments

Basic Adventure, but also not a Masterpiece Kathy Rain is a successful Adventure for Friends of the Genre and all those who want to become one. The largely reasonable Degree Of Difficulty makes the Title interesting for Newcomers as well. In addition, the Game manages to maintain a very exemplary Flow of the Game, which is far from every Adventure. On the other hand, for the rounded up 15 Euros, the Game costs much better Alternatives. These retro graphics, for Example, seem quite forced and obsolete at Adventures. So Those who approach nostalgia glasses without pink Glasses will see no Reason why such Pixel Graphics are preferable to death-chic Rendering images. Nor was it a good Decision towards the End to highlight the mystery elements so strongly and to let it stand without sufficient Explanation. One probably wanted to leave a Back Door open for a Sequel, which may never appear. The ruthless Protagonist Is also a Subject in itself. The Bottom Line, however, is that the positive Qualities predominate, which also include a great Soundtrack as well as Voiceover. Interested Parties who do not expect a Masterpiece can therefore access quietly at the latest at the next Sale. Pro and Kontra: Pro:-Creates an excellent Flow of Play-friendly degree Of difficulty, since illogical and badly tangled puzzles are dispensed With-very good OST and Voiceover-usual uncomplicated point & click control Neutral:-nice retro pixel graphics:-nice retro pixel graphics However, which cannot stop against Rendering Images-the Duration of the Game is somewhat short at about 8-9 Hours but still fine counter:-a single Puzzle in the Game beats over the Strands and will probably provoke the View into a Solution-the mystery aspect becomes towards the End. Pushy and leaves too many open Questions-Kathy is a rather unsympathetic Protagonist The Full Review: http://www.gamecontrast.de/kathy-rain-review/

Kathy Rain's arguably biggest Buying Points are his Looks and the Story. The Game looks like a "90S Point 'N ' Click Adventure (Example:" Monkey Islande, "" Sam 'n 'Max: Hit the Road "or" Day of the Tentacle ") and plays it like a mystery Crimi/thriller. It takes over the Graphic Style and so you see, for Example, how a Character runs towards the Camera from the Background. The Figure starts with ridiculous (about) 2x6 Pixel Size until it gets to its normal Fuel size. The Character, however, remains minimal throughout. The Most Detailed thing is to see him only in the Portrait when he speaks. Granted, the 90s Charm comes more from the Look of the Game than the Content, but in some Places you realise that's not our Time. There is no cell phone and every Household still has a Phone Book next to your Phone where you have to take off the Earpiece before you can enter a Number. Crazy! The Story itself centers on Kathy Rain, who learned from her Roommate at the Uni that her Grandfather died. Kathy hasn't seen him since She was a child and because her Family Circumstances are complicated, she still feels most Connected to him. She finds out that something more unusual happened before his Death and before she knows it, she is clearing up what it is all about and settling the Case that the Police dropped a few Years ago. The Cherry Community in the Small Town has something to do with it and is different from being it. The Story picks up Speed and remains consistently exciting, even in the End the Story becomes slightly spongy. But The End is definitely execable and is warping because of the ingenious Rest. The characters also count to the Ingenious Rest. They are beautifully written. But The Game also falls with the Characters. If you don't want to play a rebel from the 90s, which is direct, rides a Motorcycle, smokes and doesn't take a Hand in Front of your Mouth, you'll be given if you have less Fun playing. You have to bring Interest to the World as well as to the Protagonists Kathy Rain. TL; DR I find the minimalist Pixel Graphics and sprites in the Game very charming And the Story "in a nutshell" is: FarCry 5 with significantly less Violence, in the 90s and as Point 'n 'Click Adventure. The only Question that remains open to me after Playing is which Hairdresser Kathy Rain goes to get her Hair so.
