This new video dives deep into the process of making a puzzle adventure game that’s accessible and intuitive while still feeling fun and rewarding. That’s meant designing environments and challenges to reveal information to the player through the exploration of quieter features like light, sound, perspective, and time rather than simple text prompts.
These subtler traits build over the course of the journey to create a deeper sense of personal investment and discovery while traversing the mysterious island your character has awakened upon.
RiME is available for digital preorder now on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC via Steam, where it will launch on May 26. It will arrive on the Nintendo Switch later this summer. More information can be found by visiting www.rimegame.com
