Rain Dated And Priced, Dev Diary Makes Beautiful Music

If you ask me, I'll tell you it's my most anticipated downloadable game on the immediate horizon.

Therefore, I was very happy to learn that the immensely creative and very touching Rain has received a release date. As announced over at the PlayStation Blog , the anticipated digital title will hit the PSN on October 1 in North America. It'll hold a price tag of $14.99.

Music is a huge aspect of this experience and in the latest developer diary, Yugo Kanno explains what inspired him when working on the project. The music is beautiful and poignant, and emphasizes the nature of the game. The team also tapped Connie Talbot, and up-and-coming vocalist from the UK who debuted on Britain's Got Talent back in 2007. The result is a game that may have the best soundtrack of 2013! No exaggeration, either.

Furthermore, there's a pre-order bonus: If you pre-order between now and September 30, you'll receive a couple pieces of exclusive content. You'll get a dynamic theme, five hand-drawn avatars, a musical montage and a Static Theme, all for free. You know you want to try it; might as well just grab it now, right? This will be refreshing and relaxing.
