RIME raised the roof during Sony’s Gamescom press conference last year, and while it didn’t have quite the same impact on this occasion – it’s a known quantity, after all – it’s still looking ridiculously pretty on the PlayStation 4. Developed by Spanish studio Tequila Works, the release evokes memories of ICO, with its mysterious island setting and elaborate architecture.
The title will see you exploring the abovementioned location, solving puzzles, and trying to answer questions pertaining to your own being. Sure, that sounds like existential nonsense – and it is – but who really cares when the game looks as pretty as this? It’s almost like The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker had beautiful babies with Fumito Ueda. And that’s a good thing, by the way.
