Developer: Tequila Works

Genre: Adventure

A land of discovery stretches out before you. Explore the beautiful yet rugged world of RiME, a single-player puzzle adventure. In RiME, you play as a young boy who has awakened on a mysterious island after a torrential storm. 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 – plus the guidance of a helpful fox – you must explore the enigmatic island, reach the tower's peak, and unlock its closely guarded secrets. Discover the mysterious island at your own pace. Interact with wildlife, search for hidden items or simply take in the sights and sounds. Make your way through the ancient ruins and its hidden marvels by solving puzzles with sound, light and shadow projection, perspective, platforming, and even time manipulation. Dive deeper into the boy’s backstory by uncovering dozens of secrets and collectables, and take in a beautiful world, inspired by the Mediterranean, through a fusion of captivating music and colour.

Rive is a challenging side-scrolling shooter with tight platforming and a tenacious affection for over-the-top action.

Rime is still a moving experience. Beautiful, intimate, and fun. But Nintendo Switch version shows severe frame rate drops, and some technical issues in texture and details.

Ironically, just when we received patches for RiME at 4K, this port arrives, one of the worst we've seen and that does not do justice to the level demonstrated by Tequila Works the last month of May. Late, bad and expensive.
