Rime Re-Introduced as Multiplatform Title, Set for May 2017 Release

After going silent on the puzzle-platformer almost three years ago, Tequila Works has finally re-revealed Rime. In an exclusive reveal with IGN, the developer released a new trailer, which you can view above.

Tequila Works also announced that the former PS4 exclusive is now a multiplatform release, coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC, and the Nintendo Switch sometime this May.

Tequila Works described the game to IGN, saying:

[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.

The developers will be releasing more info about the game over the following month through IGN.

    What kind of game it is ? It sounds dangerously similar to a walking simulator

    The description calls it a puzzle platformer. After seeing the trailer I can confirm that’s exactly what it is.

    The game was inspired by Team Ico titles and it even had the same hellish development cycle. The Last Guardian came out before it, but it turned out OK, so hopefully this will too.

    I’m not into these kinds of games at all, but I have to say this game looks surprisingly good.

    Heck, it even looks better than the games it’s inspired by.

    Im slightly excited for this game. I don’t mind that it’s multiplat, that’s great. This game reminds of Team Ico’s games and Legend of Zelda Wind Waker (just a bit)
