Rainy Skies is set in a futuristic cyberpunk world. You start off as a nobody junker, living a bleak, unfulfilling life in the Junkyards, until certain events causes you to leave it all behind and venture out into the world to make a name for yourself. Your goal is to obtain friends, power and resources, and eventually make your way up to the next stratum far above you, where everything is said to be that much better. Though who knows what it'll take to get there...
Hmm. I feel like the changes to combat and equpement are an improvement. That said, I feel like the story is rushed. It's a pacing issue. Having read the reasoning behind the development restart for Rainy Skies on the dev's blog, I can imagine why that is. Given that the Dev is between a rock and a hard place with the decissions he's had to make, I'm willing to withhold any strong condemnation for now. But none of the characters have any depth any more. Trish... potentially the most interesting character in the previous version... might as well be a faceless silhouette for all the characterization she gets now. But I do hope the dev comes back to this part of the game at some point to try to give the story and the characters the charm they had before. After all, this is first impression stuff. This is what sells (or doesn't) spending hours playing the rest of the game.
That said, have put many hours into Lust Doll, I have high hopes for this game to shine once Indivi finds his feet again. Hang in there bro.
Vastly inferior to the previous edition both in gameplay and story. It might eventually live up to the standards of Lust Doll and the previous Rainy Skies but its not a promising start.
