Contest: Win Rainswept for Switch, PS4, or Xbox One


Get swept away (not the Madonna movie)

In today’s contest, you can win Rainswept for Switch, PS4, or Xbox One!

This is a title I’ve been following for a long, long time. I’ve covered it, done contests, and am now happy to say it’s out on consoles!

Rainswept just made the trek from PC so more people can get immersed in this deeply touching and personal noir drama. Win a copy for yourself so you can appreciate it along with me.

A brutal double murder has resulted in a small town being rocked to its core. Detective Michael Stone is assigned to what appears to be an open-and-shut case, but soon discovers that not everything is as it seems in Pineview. As he digs further into the slain couple, more of his past unravels in front of him, pushing him deeper and deeper into madness.

  • An emotionally captivating story set in an immersive and atmospheric game world.
  • A wide cast of characters with deep histories, meaningful motivations and distinct personalities.
  • An original detective noir story in the tradition of Twin Peaks, Luther, or Memories of Murder.
  • A moving original soundtrack by Micamic (Downfall, The Cat Lady, Lorelai). Pine trees, coffee, and rain. Lots of rain.

As Adzuken mentioned, this one isn’t for the faint of heart. But it’s definitely worth the journey.
