RiME - Launch Trailer
May 25, 2017After such a long and troubled development, many feared that RiME would be a failure, but Tequila Works proved that there can be light at the end of the tunnel. With peculiar storytelling, varied puzzles, well-crafted platforming elements and gorgeous presentation, RiME can rival with the unique beauty of Team ICO's games.
May 25, 2017Rime never strays too far from the “indie” trappings of ambiguous narrative, mysterious puzzles in a mysterious land, and a young protagonist incapable of fighting, but it delivers a meaningful and satisfying finale that shook me in a way I was not expecting.
May 30, 2017RiME is a wonderful experience filled with both light-hearted excitement and touching emotional moments. It invokes the old cliché, “I laughed, I cried,” but, of course, that doesn’t do justice to the amount of effort it took to coordinate the vivid yet dreamlike artwork, the fun and easygoing gameplay, and the dramatic musical score. It’s unfortunate that the graphics can be choppy and the movement can be finicky. Otherwise — especially if you value aesthetics over fun — this is an incredibly satisfying title.
LEVEL (Czech Republic)Jul 24, 2017Magic, wonderfully sounding and looking, yet just a decent and plain puzzle platformer. Unlike the genre icons, it will entertain you, but you will not remember it for a long time. [Issue#274]

Seems like the arthouse crowd is sometimes too lazy to buy anything on this platform, and some people have absurd expectations with budget titles, which is a shame because games like this deserve better sales.
Rime is an amazing experience. It's as simple as that. I played this on PS4, and all I can say is the graphics are even better here, and the FPS is a solid 60 on my 1070/2600K setup with 1080p. Anything more and you might run into some troubles without better hardware.
It's totally acceptable that this game wears its inspiration on its sleeves, and yet who cares when it all comes together this well? Miyazaki films, Joaquín Sorolla paintings, and the games Journey and Ico come to mind. This world is so profoundly lovely and attractive that I can basically overlook almost any flaws with the game.
The gameplay experience is actually soothing and fun to me, and I enjoy a very wide variety of games and difficulties across genres. No, you aren't going to be challenged like some SMB platformer or a PUBG gun game. It's not meant to be that way. It wouldn't even work that way. This is a relaxing puzzle game that swings toward the easier side, but it makes up for it with a decent amount of collectibles, and the game never overstays its welcome.
The graphics and world here are like some amalgamation of a Miyazaki film, Wind Waker, and ABZU/Ico. Honestly, I wasn't sure I was going to be impressed by their world, as there is limited interaction, but it is actually a breathtaking accomplishment. I am injecting SMAA at 1080p and the image quality is fantastic. While not overly detailed the bloomy resonance of the island recalls games like Ico and Shadow of the Colossus in tone to the point you really got to congratulate the team of 18 people in Spain that made this over the years. It was a struggle, but what a diamond that struggle birthed. There is just something wonderful about running around a deserted place that has no equivalency in the modern world.
I cannot help but love this thing. It's too charming to hate, too pretty to leave behind, and overall the experience is something that the whole family can enjoy. You would think there would be a bigger audience for such an indie, but with time more and more people will find this gem as it releases on all the platforms.
Anyone looking for a beautiful world spanning day and night that wants to solve a few puzzles and gaze at some gorgeous visuals is in for a treat here. Some of the collectibles are hidden fairly well and will take some logical thinking to collect. It's all very peaceful and heartwarming. Highly recommended.… Expand

Jul 9, 2017Just...wow! Make sure to have some towels ready for when you start drooling over the awesome graphics. It's among the best I've seen to dateJust...wow! Make sure to have some towels ready for when you start drooling over the awesome graphics. It's among the best I've seen to date (playing on max). This combined with the awesome music and atmosphere makes it enjoyable to just walk around looking at stuff. This is truly a work of art.
The game is fairly linear but you can go off the path to find hidden objects, which in themselves are fairly pointless. When looking for these objects, however, you will come across some really amazing views and places which truly adds to the visual experience.
I do agree that the gameplay is pretty standard and nothing new really. However, the developers themselves have said that the game is more of a "visual experience", but the puzzles could have been slightly harder as most of them are fairly simplistic.
Also the game isn't that long and can be completed in around 6 hours, possibly more if you run around looking for the hidden objects while at the same time admiring the amazing graphics.
The game has some serious performance issues however. Even the most powerful hardware struggles with this game for no apparent reason. I'm playing version 1.03 of the game with an i7 7700k @ 4,2Ghz, 32Gb DDR4 @ 3200Mhz and a GeForce GTX 1080 and there is severe stuttering and dips down to 30 fps ever now and then. This forces me to lower the score from 9 to 8.… Expand
