It’s about Rime: Zelda-like adventure gets release date

While the joys of the new Zelda on Switch are being experienced by all and/or sundry, we in PC land have to resort to scowling and then writing about how we can still learn lessons from Nintendo’s long-running adventures of Link the Landscaper.

But what’s this, sailing over the horizon? It’s Rime [official site], that adventure game about being a wee lad stranded on a gorgeous Mediterranean-style island. And it’s holding up a sign. “WILL ARRIVE,” it says, “MAY 26.”
For all who don’t know, here’s a breakdown of what its all about, from the creators.

RiME is a single-player puzzle adventure game about discovery, experienced through the eyes of a young boy who awakens on a mysterious island after shipwrecking off its coast. Players must navigate the island’s secrets by making use of light, sound, perspective and even time.

Definitely not going to follow that weird capitalisation, THaNKS. In any case, it’s being made by Tequila Works, the creators of side-scrolling zombie adventure Deadlight. They’re also working on the Sexy Brutale, which includes a Majora’s Mask style time loop in which you have to save the house guests of a creepy mansion. They like Zelda, I think.

I can’t afford a Nintendo Switch because the ruthless government of Costa Rica has put an enormous tax on videogames and assorted devilry, which brings its price to over $700. Maybe Rime will take the edge off, but I’ll still have to wait like three more months. Ugghhhhhh.
