A PlayStation 4-exclusive before developer Tequila Works re-acquired the rights earlier this year, adventure game Rime is releasing in 2017 on “gaming platforms.”

In a new announcement today, Grey Box and Six Foot revealed that they’ve partnered with Tequila Works to publish Rime next year. They didn’t give out specific details on platforms, only saying that additional information about Rime, “including gameplay and platform availability details,” will be unveiled in early 2017.

It looks like a PS4 version of Rime is still happening though, with Tequila Works saying last month that “it is still coming out for PS4,” but they wouldn’t say if it was still exclusive to PS4 or not.

Here’s the description for Rime:

RiME is a single-player puzzle adventure game about a young boy shipwrecked on a mysterious island after a torrential storm. Players must use their wits to decipher the challenges and secrets of an expansive world strewn with rugged terrain, wild creatures and the crumbling ruins of a long-forgotten civilization. With subtle narrative, colorful cel-shaded artwork and a sweeping score, RiME offers players a meaningful journey filled with discovery.

Six Foot COO Christian Svensson talked about the partnership with Tequila Works:

From its very first moving reveal, RiME has been a game that has excited and fascinated our team. Tequila Works has put an immense amount of passion and creativity into shaping a beautiful and deeply personal universe, and we’re all excited to share that experience with gamers next year.

Tequila Works CEO Raúl Rubio Munárriz added, “We’ve always wanted RiME to captivate players’ imaginations, capturing that feeling of being a child and experiencing the wonders of a bedtime story for the first time. We’re so excited to find in Grey Box and Six Foot partners just as eager as we are to make that vision for such a personal project a reality.”
