It's been roughly three years since we've last heard/seen anything regarding the puzzle game RiME, but now it's coming back from the shadows with a new trailer, release window, and multiple platforms. Come inside to check out the new details!
If you forgot about RiME, the gorgeous looking puzzler, you're probably not alone. The game was initially revealed during Gamescom 2013 as a PS4 exclusive. In March of last year, with seemingly no movement on the title, Sony pulled the publishing deal, which means the developers are now free to release the game everywhere...which is exactly what they're doing:
Grey Box, Six Foot and independent developer Tequila Works have announced that RiME, the highly anticipated puzzle adventure, will launch this May on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, as well as three new platforms: Xbox One, Nintendo Switch™ and Windows PC.
“We’re proud and excited to reveal that fans on multiple platforms will be able to experience RiME this spring,” said Raúl Rubio Munárriz, CEO and creative director of Tequila Works, which confirmed its partnership with publisher Grey Box and Six Foot last year. “We want to express our most sincere gratitude to all those who never lost hope, faith and patience towards us. They gave us the will and strength to create such a personal experience, and we cannot wait to show you more of RiME in the coming months.”
RiME is a single-player puzzle adventure about discovery, experienced through the eyes of a young boy who awakens on a mysterious island after shipwrecking off its coast. Players must navigate the island’s secrets by making use of light, sound, perspective and even time. Inspired by the rugged, sunbaked terrain of the Mediterranean coast, RiME paints its breathtaking world with a fusion of vibrant colors and moving musical undertones to set the stage for the deeply personal journey that awaits within.
“Once we began working with Tequila Works, we became excited at the prospect of releasing RiME to a much wider audience,” said Christian Svensson, chief operating officer of Six Foot. “This is a title we think will resonate with gamers, and we can’t wait to share it with them in a few short months.”
RiME will launch sometime in May 2017 on the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch and yep, it still looks pretty damn great. The developers have promised more info is coming soon, but in the meantime, we can all enjoy the new trailer.
