A crude concept of the feel I want for the world of my game: An ever-raining desert, where some fundamental laws, such as gravity, are broken.

This has a sort of "The Void-The Mist" feel to it. really like it.

Cant hope of a better compliment, that was exactly what I was aiming for in terms of atmosphere. Love those movies, specially The Void.

I like the Bloodborne like ascetic to it, especially in the character.

Thanks! Bloodborne and Dark Souls are of course HEAVY inspirations for me.

So what exactly will this game be about?

Still fleshing out the plot, but in terms of of gameplay and setting will be a 2D sidescroller based on exploration of a strange future, near the end of time.

That sounds really cool. I love the lovecraftian look of all the backgrounds and creatures.

Thanks! Yeah, the cosmic horror will be a underlying element.

I LOVE the rain in this. That's going to create such a spooky atmosphere, and the amount of hazard that's going to add to the gameplay, what a nightmare XD
I'm really digging all the textures in the background also, that looks amazing~

Thanks!! That's the idea with the rain. I started with the typical desert, but I felt it was a bit cliche at this point (desert wasteland), so I imagined the opposite: a world in perpetual rain.

Not sure if the final will be as atmospheric, but I'll try.

I'm sure if done in your style, the desert idea would've turned out cool, but I know what you're saying. I always like taking initial ideas like that, and turning them on their heads, you always get something unexpected and interesting. 

Very curious how this is going to end up looking :D (Big Grin)
