If the world is a stage and we are all players, then that means we must all simultaneously be the protagonists of our own stories, right? Look beyond the crude clichés and there’s a point to that opening sentence: The Invisible Hours exposes what it would be like to act as a fly on the wall in a house where every inhabitant has a...
Fly on the wall
The Invisible Hours unwinds over the course of 90 or so fraught minutes, and you’re able to manipulate time in order to experience it all. This brilliant narrative feast from RIME developer Tequila Works sees several famous historical figures – Thomas Edison! Sarah Bernhardt! – invited to Nikola Tesla’s mansion moments before...
Spoilers: the soundtrack in RiME is absolutely extraordinary. Sure, we’re technically under embargo until tomorrow, but we doubt anyone will be too irritated we happened to share that tidbit. One of the tracks has been written by Lindsey Stirling, an American violinist – and this is the music video for the song. Weird CGI foxes...
We slapped a humongous score on The Sexy Brutale this week, but we have a confession to make: several of us at Push Square Towers had never even heard of the title prior to reviewer Simon Fitzgerald's ravings. We're sure that secretly applies to many of you, too, so we recorded a live stream which should help you to learn what the...
Welcome to the house of fun
The Sexy Brutale is a murder mystery puzzle game set within a casino mansion. But this isn't just any ordinary big house: the staff are murdering the guests and you must put a stop to it. You take on the role of Lafcardio Boone, a priest who is trying to piece together the happenings of the house and save its victims from...
Hey, that rhymes
It was a little surreal to be finally playing RiME, Tequila Works' extremely elusive title. Originally announced as far back as 2013 and its design undergoing vast changes, the title will at last be releasing in May not as an open world adventure as initially planned but a more focused, concise puzzle platformer. Whatever it turned...
Thomas Edison takes on Nikola Tesla
RiME developer Tequila Works is particularly busy right now, with the studio hard at work on several games, including PlayStation VR murder mystery The Invisible Hours. This intriguing virtual reality story aims to deal with the real-life rivalry between Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla, resulting in the latter...
RiME is actually coming out, can you believe it? The intriguing Tequila Works title was first announced as a PlayStation 4 exclusive during a Sony press conference eons ago, but the platform holder eventually opted to drop the project, enabling a multiformat release. Of course, it's still coming to the Japanese giant's console, and you'll...
It's RiME time
It has been a long road for the much anticipated RiME after its initial announcement way back in 2013. The title has been plagued by a long development time and publisher struggles with Sony these past few years, but after its re-reveal in late 2016, it looks like we'll finally be getting our hands on it. And just to prove to you...
RIME and reason
Do you remember RiME? The promising ex-PlayStation 4 exclusive has had a tumultuous development cycle befitting of its evident Team ICO inspirations, disappearing from the face of the Earth before eventually being dropped by Sony. Word on the street was that Tequila Works wasn't making much progress with the project, but here it...
But it's no longer exclusive
RiME will release on the PlayStation 4 in 2017 – though it will no longer be an exclusive, following Sony's decision to drop the anticipated title from its first-party portfolio. The title, in development at Spanish studio Tequila Works, has been the subject of intrigue since it was revealed many years ago – but...
Studio has also expanded
The last time we heard from Tequila Works' RIME, things weren't looking up. Sony cut their ties with the game earlier this year after the developer re-acquired the rights to the IP, which threw the question of the title actually releasing into even further mystery. Backed up by the fact that we hadn't seen anything since...
Studio seems upbeat
RIME is no longer a Sony published game. Spanish studio Tequila Works announced yesterday that it had reacquired the rights to the ICO-inspired ex-PlayStation 4 exclusive, and rumours have been swirling since that the developer was having real difficulty turning the concept into a full release. These are claims that the company...
Sony supposedly drops the game
Hmmmm, we're not sure what to make of this one. Many of you will know of a promising PlayStation 4 exclusive known as RIME, which was originally shown all the way back at Gamescom 2013. We've heard very little about the game since, but both Sony and the developer, Tequila Works, have always been on hand to reiterate...
Time for RIME?
RIME, the resplendent ICO-inspired PlayStation 4 adventure from Tequila Works, is still alive – despite it being absent from various press conferences all year long. Writing on Twitter in response to a fan, the Spanish studio re-iterated that the promising title is very much in development, and that there'll be more information...
With no sign of Team ICO’s hotly anticipated The Last Guardian on the horizon, the responsibility may fall with Spanish studio Tequila Works’ gorgeous RIME to provide us with the PlayStation 4 tearjerker that we deserve. And as part of a semi-promotional Develop article, the indie outfit has confirmed that it’s hoping to convey...
Akira Yamaoka composing the soundtrack
RIME was one of the biggest highlights at this year’s GamesCom. The upcoming Tequila Works open world adventure is being published by Sony, and clearly hopes to revisit the emotions last felt in PlayStation classics such as ICO,
