Rain Original Soundtrack, composed by "Biohazard: Infinite Darkness" composer Yugo Kanno, commemorates ten years of release today. A Developer Diary video can be viewed on the PlayStation YouTube channel.

The PlayStation-3 exclusive adventure game Rain was developed by Acquire and Japan Studio using the Unity game engine. The game's central mechanic revolves around obscuring the player character and enemies from view, unless they are draped in rainfall. The PlayStation Network digital title was part of Sony's PlayStation C.A.M.P. program, promoting talent among residents of Japan.

Rain Original Soundtrack is available for streaming on Spotify and Amazon Music Unlimited. The thirty-track album includes three pieces by Claude Debussy of Untitled Goose Game fame. Main theme "A Tale Only the Rain Knows," featuring vocals by Connie Talbot, arranges the French composer's "Clair de Lune."

From the product page:
From the early stages of the production cycle, we’ve always felt that music is one of the most important elements in creating the world of rain. In this developer diary, Yugo Kanno — who handled all aspects of the composition and arrangements — explains what initially inspired him when introduced to the project, and his experiences while composing the music.
