/!\  This is an old version of the game  /!\ The remastered version feature improved graphics and control, new levels and save function. I would highly recommend to play this one instead: Rainy Day Remastered


It's almost the end of the day, you're off work and it's time for you to walk all the way to your home. It's a long road and it's quite rainy out there, don't forget to put on a jacket you're gonna catch a cold. By the way, you forgot your umbrella. What a bummer, it would be a shame if, say... You were vulnerable to water.

Rainy Day is an unique platformer with old school ASCII graphics. In this world, your umbrella is your only defense against this downpour. Make you way through the city, make sure the water never hits you !  

6 wides levels to explore! Several secrets ! Deadly traps ! Umbrella ! Rain ! At least two jokes ! Three differents endings ( About what ? I dunno, go figure) !

/!\ WARNING : Play preferably on Firefox, works on Chrome too but might be a bit unstable.

IMPORTANT : There is no save system, when you quit the page you lose all your progress. 

Thanks a lot for playing! You can follow me on Twitter  to stay informed about my next projects and games.

i got stuck on the room that is completely invisible if you can help me 

you know replies exist, right

im sorry i was a dumb human

Great game, although i accidentally glitched out while swimming in an umbrella, and fell through the water, which softlocked me, since k wasn't working.

So I found this game from PointlessSites, and I saw there was a remake in the description but I wanted to know what the original designed experience was. I am not saying this to rag on the game, but please do play the remake first! As someone who played both versions, the remake is a much less frustrating experience all-around. That's not to say there's nothing good about this version - I actually think the final dark room was better done in this version because everything being pitch-black turned it into its own puzzle - but it's a case of "play the remake first, THEN try this one to see what's different".


173 deaths though I feel like I sometimes died on spawn in the upside-down area. The last part was just annoying with how long it takes between attempts :/ But this game was super charming with it's art style! It could have been a little less sensitive on the controls since it made platforming hard at times... Liked it in general honestly :3

Wow, this game was incredibly charming, lovely job

Really fun game, but I can't get past the part where it says, "Who even build these tunnels?

Best ASCII platforming game. I love you, man! Please rewrite in c/c++ and ncurses library for unix terminal. :-)

I love the ASCII aesthetic but I feel by snapping the player to a grid, the platforming suffers. I believe you could have kept the graphics but use all those extra pixels to allow tighter platforming controls but that's your design choice (plus idk how you coded it making that impossible to change). I also think that the checkpoints were too far apart. For example, the first checkpoint in the sewers is far from the "I hope these grids are solid enough" part where I died a lot. I would end up rushing to get back and end up dying again along the way. It felt annoying and a bit of a time waster which was when I quit.

Overall this is a super cute game that I would like to play through when it's finished!

good game and clever idea but the jumps are too pixel perfect to make it fun - having to go back to the previous screen and start it all over again is a bit tedious. fix that and i would be impressed :)
