Today, publishers Grey Box and Six Foot and developer Tequila Works released the official launch trailer for its puzzle adventure game, RiME, which is set to finally release both at retail and digitally tomorrow on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The game is notably in development for Nintendo Switch as well; however, this version won’t launch until later this summer.
As you may know, RiME was first revealed back in 2013. Before it became RiME, it was actually called Echoes of Siren, and was initially green-lit by Microsoft, but later was rejected. From there, funding of the game was obtained by Sony, who made it an exclusive PS4 release. However, in 2016 Tequilla Works re-acquired the rights to the IP from Sony, who parted with the game in a rather mysterious break-up. RiME was then picked up by relatively unknown publishers — Grey Box and Six Foot — and became a multi-platform title. Now, it’s finally releasing. Finally.
Here’s an official overview of the title if you want to know more:
RiME is a single-player puzzle adventure game 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 colours and moving musical undertones to set the stage for the deeply personal journey that awaits within.
RiME costs $29.99 USD. Be on the lookout for our review of the game soon. In the meanwhile, you can check out the new trailer below:
