VIDEO: Rime looks a bit like a cross between Ico and Wind Waker

Another surprise in Sony’s Gamescom 2014 conference was Tequila Works’ puzzle platformer Rime.

Rime is set in a unique ancient world of mystery, intrigue and adventure,” Xdev Studio Europe producer Chris Jones said. Set on a beautiful island, a boy wakes on the shore to find he’s lost, with the only the island and the animals to accompany him.

You guide the boy through the island helping him unlock the puzzles, in the trailer you can see that there are puzzles all around and finding them is just a matter of perspective.

As well as following the story of the boy, the island is also an integral character in the game, and it will not give up its hidden secrets easily. Who is the boy? Why is the boy here? Why is he alone? Ultimately the game is to find the answers to all of these important questions.”

Here’s a first look at the game in action:
