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…

I loved it! In the same class of other fine adventure titles
Kathy Rain reminded me of my favorite classic adventure games - in the same class of Monkey Island, Indiana Jones, Police Quest, Blackwell Legacy, Broken Sword and Gabriel Knight. I love the old school pixel artwork and the close-up portraits of the character's faces. The voice acting is pretty good, too - I especially liked the performances from the cassette tape recordings. Puzzles were very organic - challenging and fun, not frustrating or ridiculous. My only nitpicks are: nobody uses a photo scanner to ingest audio from a cassette player. Inconceivable! Your players are smarter than that. ;-) Also, if you're going to throw around the "F" word, why do you refrain from using "resting b*tchy face" ("resting scowly face" is not the correct term, and sounds odd). At any rate, I would LOVE to learn more about the backstory in a Kathy Rain sequel. I hope this series continues - I am a huge fan already. :-) Thank you to the developer and publisher for taking the time and resources to release this title. I can't wait to buy the sequel when it's released on iOS!
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.
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!
