Honestly, I’m a sucker for a nice piece of art design, and Rime looks to have it in spades. The gameplay reminds me of Ico and Journey, which – let’s face it – isn’t a bad thing.
And that art design seems to be something Tequila Works have a flair for, as I found when I reviewed Deadlight in 2012.
For those who are new to the game, Rime is set in a unique ancient world of mystery, intrigue and adventure. Set on a beautiful island, a boy wakes on the shore to find he’s lost, with the only the island and the animals to accompany him.
You guide the boy through the island helping him unlock the puzzles, in the trailer you can see that there are puzzles all around and finding them is just a matter of perspective, (Did you see the fox? Watch the trailer again!)
As well as following the story of the boy, the island is also an integral character in the game, and it will not give up its hidden secrets easily. Who is the boy? Why is the boy here? Why is he alone? Ultimately the game is to find the answers to all of these important questions.
Sounds great, doesn’t it? Watch another exclusive to PS4 in action, below.
