Replicating the style and gameplay of the retro RPG in a meaningful way is no easy task, but Zeboyd comes through strong. While its inspirations are clear, Rain-Slick 4 never takes the easy route and becomes a derivative homage piece. This powerful pastiche stands alone with ease and stacks up nicely alongside the 90s greats, although it certainly comes with a distinctly different approach to storytelling.
Zeboyd Games keep getting better and better with every game they make, and the same can be said for the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness series. If you’re a fan of old-school RPG’s, Rain-Slick 4 is a must have as it lovingly parodies the games of the SNES era while it pushes them forward.
