Sometimes coming home brings more questions than answers…
Kathy Rain is a beautiful and nostalgic homage to the classic point-and-click adventure genre of games, built seamlessly for your touchscreen device. Search for clues and solve puzzles in a compelling small-town drama set in the mid-1990’s.
After learning of her grandfather’s untimely passing, Kathy Rain, a strong-willed journalism student, returns to her hometown for the first time in many years to pay her respects — but things are not what they seem. An air of mystery surrounds the circumstances of Joseph Rain’s death, involving unsolved investigations and disturbing behavior from the locals, driving Kathy to vow to uncover the truth for her widowed grandmother.
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? Armed with her motorcycle, a pack of smokes, and her sharp wit, Kathy soon discovers that the truth is more dark and sinister than she ever imagined…

Ratings and Reviews
What they said...awesome.
I thought, 'ugh another plodding mystery adventure game (which isn't bad, but I tend to be impatient).
Such beautiful atmosphere, amazing voice acting (seriously good) and I don't know the word for it, but the mixture of pixel art with soft effects and lighting worked so well. Oh and the music is so good, it's haunting, never annoying or repetitive.
I had no idea this was pretty dark and definitely not PG, there's a lot of cursing and some dark events.
The puzzles (for me) were very very original and difficult, made you want to get out a pen n paper and scribble to figure it out. There were not many puzzles but the ones there were so well thought out, never monotonous. I really enjoyed the detailed environment (objects to interact with, things to examine.) The length was satisfying.
It was really really good. I did use a walk through occasionally because I'm lazy and sometimes I got tired of tracking over the same sites over n over.
Only issue: on the IPad there is some glitch in certain locations which when you push to see 'hot spots', they are overlapped and in the wrong places. I saw this in many rooms.
Great storyline but the game isn’t for me
As I said, the storyline is really great. The artwork is also very good. The character’s physical movement was not super fluid but detailed. The game has a lot of dialog and sometimes you're just sitting there not doing anything while they talk. It reminds me of Blackwell. The game kind of leads you around at times so I felt like it was playing without me here and there. On an iPhone, it was sometimes hard to find the exact spot to click as objects were small. a few unintuitive puzzles. It was a good mystery that you don’t really solve yourself, the game does, and somewhat slow moving because of the way you get from place to place. Some good merits here and while I enjoy this type of game, I prefer Thimbleweed Park, Macinarium, Yesterday, Inner World and Pendulo Studios type better.
This was a great game. Long gameplay, amazing character and story. It is rated R, FYI. It has the traditional annoyances of this type of game- long waits while your character moves from here to there, trouble making out objects, but all that is part of the genre. The art is great, and did I say it was a great story? I'd love a Kathy Rain 2, maybe with a few more puzzles this time- it was a little light on puzzles. My only beef with it was that it was super specific about the actions you needed to take, which could make it challenging to know if you are on the right path. Thanks for the great experience!
