Rain Games most recent release was Teslagrad, a fun little game that had you manipulating magnets and magnetic fields to solve puzzles and fight bosses. Their next release is called World to the West. It takes place in the same universe as that previous game, but it’s very different in feel from its predecessor.
Ole Ivar Rudi, the Art Director for Rain Games took a few minutes to sit down and talk to us about Teslagrad, World to the West and everything going on with Rain Games right now.
Thanks for joining us today. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and Rain Games for people who may not be familiar with you?
My pleasure! I’m Ole(twitter:@oleivarrudi), the art director for Rain, a small game development company on the west coast of Norway. Our previous game,Teslagrad, is a visual fairytale about magnet superpowers in the form of a hand painted exploration platformer, told entirely without dialogue.
We’re currently making its followup, World to The West- a sprawling top down action adventure with for unique playable characters, set in and around the ruins of an ancient civilization. It takes place in the same world as Teslagrad, but on another continent, and a few faces and story details will be recognizable to those that played the previous game.
Will we find the time to explain before things are over?
Shelby is out this week, but the rest of the crew steps up to talk Tokyo Mirage Sessions. They touch on some of the controversy surrounding the game. Ethan’s still been playing FF XIV for the last six years. Shannon gets his groove on and Micah takes a trip to a galaxy far, far away. Want to find out what else they talk about? You’re just going to have to listen.
Hosts: Tony, Micah, Shannon, Ethan

Over the years my level of interest in the Monster Hunter series has grown from indifference to a sort of dislike, to a respect and finally to a genuine love of the series. It’s one of those franchises that I absolutely love and look forward to new releases each time they’re announced. The one thing I’ve not really liked about the series is the way it demos and the demos that Capcom has put out.
If you don’t know anything about the Monster Hunter series then the demos that have been available do absolutely nothing to show you what the series is all about. There is so much depth and so much to do in these games that it’s almost impossible to really convey in a short, limited demo. Capcom has more or less just said, here are all the weapons and here are all the monsters. Pick the weapon you want to fight with and the monster you want to slay and have fun. You get a basic idea of the mechanics, but no real feel for just what the series is or what you can do in the games.
This week’s Nintendo download is really, pretty good. We’ve got the newest LEGO Star Wars game. The sequel to one of Nintendo’s most interesting rcent puzzle releases in BOXBOY!, and the Virtual console gets one of the best RPGs that Square ever made. You’re going to have to head past the break to see what everything is.
