In the game, players help guide Nimbus the curmudgeonly rain cloud through the various worlds of Sunnyland, raining down on all the flowers (they love it!) while trying to keep all of Sunnyland’s other inhabitants dry (they hate rain!). Along the way, players unlock achievements, comics, new accessories, and meet all of the friendly folks of Sunnyland. Award winners at the Boston Festival of Indie Games were chosen by festival-goers, who were among the first to play Negative Nimbus. The app will be released on iPad/iPhone in October/November 2012.
