August 12, 2014 Written by Jason Dunning

Reminding you that it’s a PlayStation 4 exclusive, Sony showed off the above trailer for Rime today at gamescom.

Here’s Rime’s description: “The story of a boy who must use his wits and ingenuity to survive – and ultimately escape from – a mysterious island and a terrible curse.”

Telling us a little bit more about Rime, Sony Xdev Europe’s Chris Jones said:

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.

In a beautifully crafted world, you will see stunning vistas as you play through the game and delve deep into the islands true meaning. We know that you will love this highly emotional experience and we are looking forward to bringing this to you exclusively on the PS4 and sharing more with you over the coming months.

When more details are revealed for Rime, we’ll let you know.
