Rime Re-Revealed as Multi-Platform Adventure

/ Jan 3rd, 2017 No Comments

Rime

Rime, a former PlayStation-exclusive adventure game, has broken a long period of silence to be re-revealed as a multi-platform title set for release in May 2017.

The game was first shown at Gamescom in 2013 with a captivating trailer and news of PS4 exclusivity. Now the game will be released for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and the Nintendo Switch.

Tequila Works’ initial trailer for Rime featured a young boy exploring a beautiful, cartoon-like island. With imagery evoking The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Journey, and Ico, the game instantly rose to the top of PlayStation fans’ most anticipated lists. That bit of media was one of the few pieces of information released about the game, with little to nothing else being known about it.

In March 2016 Sony pulled its publishing deal after nothing of Rime had been seen, allowing Tequila Works to bring the game to any other platforms it wished. The lack of information along with Sony’s move caused many to speculate if the game was ever going to be released. Coupled with rumors that the game was either barely playable or at an unknown point in development fueled the idea it would be permanently stuck in development hell.

Despite the long wait, Rime is still retaining its signature look. Comparisons to Fumito Ueda’s recent The Last Guardian will definitely be drawn, as well as the stylistic similarities with The Wind Waker and last year’s The Witness. The game is definitely in sharp contrast to Tequila Works’ only other game Deadlight, a 2012 side-scrolling zombie platformer. As more information and gameplay is released in the coming months, we should have a better idea if the game will be worth the wait.
