Rime Looks A Lot Like A Next Gen Ico, And I’m Okay With That!

Announced at Gamescom this year, I haven’t had the chance to see, let alone play, Sony’s latest independent baby Rime yet. But a trailer for the game is now available (I recommend banging the resolution up to 1080p) and it sure looks a lot like Ico. As far as I’m concerned this is a good thing.

We know very little about the game at this stage other than the fact it’s a PlayStation 4 exclusive with no dialogue (the story reportedly plays out via in-game interactions and such like). Apparently the legendary Akira Yamaoka, composer behind Silent Hill, is part of the audio team. The game is being developed by Tequila Works, a Spanish development team. Rime is its second game, with Deadlight — a survival horror platformer on Xbox LIVE Arcade being its first.

Rime looks a little derivative, but its derivative of games that generally aren’t imitated all that often, at least not on a scale as large as this. My hope is that Rime has enough unique elements to circumvent those comparisons and become a truly interesting video game. But even now, in its current state, with how little we know about it, I’m excited.
