Tequila Works’ forthcoming indie title, RIME, has been missing in action for quite some time now. Being a PS4 exclusive that is published by Sony, the game was expected to make an appearance at this year’s Playstation Experience. However, the game remains absent and little to no information is available, raising concerns regarding its cancellation. Thankfully, the developer has broken its silence on the matter.
In response to a tweet from a fan, Tequila Works said that RIME is still in development and its progress is on track.

RIME’s back story involves a boy who needs to escape an island and a curse; the game, played through the boy as the in-game avatar, involves puzzle solving in an open world island setting.
The game design uses the island environment itself, and audio without a spoken narrative to tell the game’s story, a day-night mechanic was retained from the ‘Echoes of Siren’ design, with light influencing gameplay as well as visual appearance.
It appears that we may be seeing a brand new trailer for RIME soon, hopefully with the announcement of a concrete release date. Share your thoughts on the game in the comments below.
