After re-revealing Rime for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC yesterday, developer Tequila Works and publishers Grey Box and Six Foot offered up some more details today on the puzzle adventure game.

First up, Rime is getting a physical release on PS4 and Xbox One, with a physical Switch release being considered. According to Amazon, Rime will cost $29.99 USD and launch on May 9 (the official release window is May 2017).

Creative Director Raúl Rubio also addressed the fact they’re bringing Rime to four platforms, instead of just one. “It is true that bringing Rime to other platforms has meant additional workload for the team, but being able to share our vision with a wider audience makes that extra effort worth it,” he told MCV.

Here’s the full description for Rime:

A land of discovery stretches out before you. Explore the beautiful, yet rugged, world of RiME, a single-player puzzle adventure game releasing in May 2017.

In RiME, you play as a young boy who has awakened on a mysterious island after a shipwreck. You see wild animals, long-forgotten ruins and a massive tower that beckons you to come closer.

Armed with your wits and a will to overcome – and the guidance of a helpful fox – you must explore the enigmatic island and unlock its closely guarded secrets.

  • Explore – Discover the mysterious island at your own pace. Interact with wildlife, search for hidden items or simply take in the sights and sounds.
  • Solve Puzzles – Make your way through the ancient ruins by solving puzzles with sound, light, perspective, platforming, and even time manipulation.
  • Find Secrets – Dive deeper into the boy’s backstory by uncovering dozens of secrets and collectables.
  • Be Enchanted – Take in beautiful, Mediterranean-inspired terrain complemented by the captivating music of David García Díaz.

The final touches are being put on Rime right now, and you can expect to hear more about it throughout the month of January.
