Tequila Works announced today that Rime is releasing on May 26 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, priced at $29.99 USD/€34.99/£29.99 through both retail and digital stores. The Nintendo Switch version will arrive “shortly afterward,” priced at $39.99 USD/€44.99/£39.99.
Re-revealed earlier this year as a multi-platform title, Tequila Works says their goal with Rime “was not only to create an enchanting and engaging adventure, but to craft a game where you see the world through the eyes of a child. We decided to move in this direction because there’s something so universal about it; after all, we were all children at some point.”
Here’s what to expect from Rime:
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.
Addressing the higher price tag of the Switch version, Tequila Works said, “The MSRP of the Switch version is based on development and go-to-market costs, which can vary for each platform.”
