See Five Things We Like About Rime

Rime, an adventure game that centers around puzzle solving and exploration, was first revealed back in 2013. Since then, we've heard very little about the game and it left the spotlight until recently. With developer Tequila Works reaquiring the rights from Sony last year, and with new publishers on board, Rime is back and inching towards a May release.

We recently got a chance to play an extended demo, where we traversed through an island with varying landscapes filled with secrets and puzzles. Rime is minimalist and reminiscent of Ico and Journey, telling a vague, abstract story about a young boy who washes up on the shore of a mysterious island.

In the video below, features editor Kim Wallace and I talk about our thoughts and I share five stand-out qualities that impressed me from Rime.

Rime releases this May for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
