Tequila Works' adventure game Rime has been in limbo since its reveal at Sony's Gamescom press event back in 2013. Today, Grey Box and Six Foot announced that they'll be publishing the game. Further information about Rime, including platforms, release date, and actual gameplay, is expected to be revealed in the beginning of 2017, with a planned release later that year.
Rime is the story of a young man shipwrecked on a desolate island following a storm. Think of it as a mix between The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Myst, with the protagonist wandering the island surviving, solving puzzles, and uncovering a long-lost civilization.
"From its very first moving reveal, RiME has been a game that has excited and fascinated our team," said Six Foot CEOO Christian Svensson. "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."
"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," said Tequila Works CEO Raul Rubio Munárriz. "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."
