Sony has released a new trailer for Rain, the atmospheric stealth-oriented PS3 adventure from PlayStation C.A.M.P!, the team behind titles including Tokyo Jungle and Echochrome. The game tells the story of a boy attempting to track and rescue a girl being hunted by ghostly creatures in the mysterious “world of rain”. Both characters take the form of silhouettes only visible in the rain, and players interact with the environment, solve puzzles and use the rain to guide and protect them.

The new trailer and fresh screenshots posted above showcase a number of locations, from a church to a brightly lit circus and an abandoned factory. “It is here that the boy discovers that when he walks through mud he can be seen by any enemy and only by walking through a deep rain puddle to wash off the mud will he be able to hide once again,” says associate producer Dais Kawaguchi.

Sony plans to share more about Rain at E3 next month, when it will let attendees go hands-on with the game. Following a look at the title in March, we wrote in this Rain preview: “Rain conveys its theme of uncertainty in a convincing fashion, even with just a few minutes of seeing the game. We're already intrigued by the lonely, depressing world, and its invisible characters.”
