There’s a new developer diary available for Rime, the puzzle-focused adventure game from Grey Box, Six Foot and Tequila Works. This latest video goes behind-the-scenes with Tequila Works for a look at how Rime’s vivid art, color, sound and music design shape the player’s emotional arc, creating a world that is both fantastic yet intimately familiar. Rime had a troubled development history when a major deal between the studio and Sony fell through. It wasn’t pretty. However, the makers didn’t give up and found new partners with the game becoming a multiplatform title!

In addition, Rime can now be preordered digitally on the Xbox Store and Steam. Xbox Live members, as well as Steam users, will receive 10% off their purchase for preordering the game before it releases. Rime sends players on a deeply personal journey of discovery, experienced through the eyes of a young boy who awakens on a mysterious island after shipwrecking off its coast. While navigating the island’s rugged terrain and ancient structures, players will explore challenges using light, sound, perspective and even time. The title looks like an absolutely breathtaking and magical experience which every gamer should consider.
