Ultimately, Rainswept has a good story to tell. A sad story, one of grief, loss, murder and small-town cruelty.

Although it’s not without its faults, Rainswept was a powerful story to me. With its artwork, soundtrack, and intimate themes and characters, the game was able to grab my attention and hold it the whole way through. Fans of mysteries, thrillers, and, yes, Twin Peaks will probably really enjoy this game. Those of you who enjoy well-crafted narratives may also be interested. Overall, I think it’s an impressive debut for Armaan Sandhu and his company, Frostwood Interactive.

Rainswept is a compelling effort. It's a heartfelt game that does its best to portray the messiness of relationships and the damage that trauma can do if left to fester.

Rainswept delivers an engaging and often touching story, but its dated visuals, lack of worthwhile gameplay and disappointing conclusion leave it in a somewhat muddy puddle.

"Its clunky controls, odd character design, and clumsy animations are too measurable to be ignored. If you’re looking for a challenging, Sherlock-esque game, this is probably not for you, but if you’re looking for an emotional narrative about love and loss, it’s worth the small time investment (5 or so hours)"

Rainswept has a good beginning, and is successful in introducing it characters and their stories. However, the flaws in storytelling and gameplay waste this beginning and prevent the game from reaching an acceptable level.

Rainswept is an adventure with a promising introduction and a completely disappointing ending. Standard chewing gum and popcorn for the modern brain that requires visual and psychological enjoyment.
