This Six-Minute Gameplay Video is Your Introduction to Japan Studios’ ‘Rain,’ A Stealth Game About Invisibility

The above picture (taken by Joystiq) is one of dozens of handmade pamphlets that Ken Suzuta — an associate producer for the PlayStation C.A.M.P. team — made for his next game, “Rain.” The inside features glossy cut-outs of the game’s stormy cityscape, while they outside features an origami umbrella. It’s a delicate, fragile thing, which seems like the perfect introduction to his upcoming PlayStation Network title.

We haven’t covered “Rain” here at MTV before, but Sony’s presentation at GDC 2013 — which featured a six-minute gameplay video of the Japan Studio-developed title — seems like as good a reason as any.

“Rain” is an adventure-stealth game about a young, invisible boy whose silhouette can only be seen in the rain. One day he spies a young girl, also invisible, being chased by monsters and he sets out to save her and learn more about the preternaturally rainy world they live in.
