Sometimes you look for some game information and you stumble across a game you’ve never heard of and find it interesting. This is exactly the case with a game by Sometimes You and Sergey Noskov. I’d previously played another of his games called In Rays Of The Light so seeing a new title from him was interesting and caught my eye. If you like adventure games with a puzzle element for example or story-led like South Of The Circle then this may interest you. Though this game Hail To The Rainbow may offer a touch more.
We don’t know a lot about Hail To The Rainbow. In fact, the official website tells it’s a Sergey Noskov title coming 2025 to PC and consoles. It also gives the link to wish list the game on Steam. There is a trailer for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 so we know it’s coming to PlayStation though the last-gen console is no guarantee. The Xbox channel has no trailer yet but that doesn’t mean it’s not coming to Xbox.
