The gaming world was a little shocked to hear the announcement from Tequila Works that they had reacquired their IP for RiME from Sony. In a tweet the developers wrote:
Tequila Works has chosen to reacquire the rights to its adventure game, RiME, and is working hard to realise its aspirations for it.
This of course is surprising for many fans of the reveal trailer, who likened the game to ICO, but it’s long been rumoured by sources close to the matter the development of the game was struggling because the reveal trailer didn’t contain any gameplay. You can watch the trailer below and you can see why these rumours were brushed off originally:
However, it seems that Sony doesn’t believe in this game either any more, but Stewart Gilray of Just Add Water looks like he is interested in helping the studio out, or at least that’s what we’re assuming.
Hopefully Just Add Water can improve the developer#s fortunes and release this fantastic looking concept!
