EXPERIENCE

I haven’t had this much fun with a puzzle adventure game since 2019’s Untitled Goose Game.

Oh hi, Grandpa Ricky…tell us a bedtime story…no…not that one…the one where you get to control a cloud to destroy all hoomans, first in Seattle and then the world…muhaha….except for the small hoomans…we don’t want you to piss the bed now do we.

So, you start off as a little rain cloud who’s objective is to dampen the spirtits of a single screen level of a wedding event and move onto sprawling canvases of outdoor spaces with physics puzzles to solve with your unlocked powers of Lightening, Tornadoes and Snow.

Start fires by fueling up with oil sludge rain or corrode things with acid rain or create some zombies by raining down toxic rain in a graveyard…and then lead that army of the dead across town picking up more Zombie Hoomans along the way…gosh…I feel a bit evil.

Complete objectives…or don’t…well unless they have a star next to them…then that is manditory to advance to the next level in the overworld where you select your next place of mayhem.

Accessorize your cloud with hats, glasses and junk to customize your look…really dig deep by visiting your cloud home and drawing your own face on the cloud. or choose from a limited color pallette to match your cloud to its accessories.

God like powers to destroy all Hoomans…and possibly save Seattle from the evil Dr. Dryspell…Mr. Dryspell? Dryspell. Stupid Turrets..I don’t have time for this!

Influences: Playstation games (Little Big Planet, Katamari), Popular Culture (The Office, The Princess Bride, Horror Movies), Game Culture (CS GO, Break Out, Frogger, Silent Hill)

The Good: Clever Level Designs, Lots of Humor and Just a joy to play

The Bad: The Frame Rate on PC and Switch during high movement, like sucking up a bunch of boxes, cab cause frame lag issues.
Boop’s Patented 10 Point Rating System
Art/Animation: 3D Cardboard and Yarn (stage play) from a God Like POV. Run cycles set in a physics based ragdoll world. Boom go the particles.
Music/Effects: Some great variations on classic and popular culture songs done in a synth style. Layered with human screams and dripping rain and thunder rumbles.
V/O: Sims like Mumble Speak with some maniacal laughter.
World Building: A story woven as a tale told as a bed time story. It is fairly thin but amusing.
Currency/Loot: Loot the gear. Equip the gear. Gear is for visual effect only.
AI/NPCs: Magnets push and pull not very adaptive.
Controls: Dead simple controls. Controller only.
Interface: Serviceable and themeatically intergrated with the game.
Replay/Endgame: Pretty short game at around 3 hours but can stretch that out to double or triple that when you perfect your score and explore all minor objectives. Some endgame unlocks as well will help you hang around in this world longer than you think.
Score: 9 Killer Clouds out of 10 Screaming Hoomans
