RiME was announced back in 2013 as a “first-party PS4 exclusive”, but earlier this year developer Tequila Works announced it had reacquired the rights for the adventure game, indicating the title would no longer be released exclusively on PS4.

Grey Box and parent company Six Foot have now been announced as RiME’s new publisher. Grey Box is currently also working with Yager on Dreadnought.

RiME is described as a “single-player puzzle adventure game about a young boy shipwrecked on a mysterious island after a torrential storm. Players must use their wits to decipher the challenges and secrets of an expansive world strewn with rugged terrain, wild creatures and the crumbling ruins of a long-forgotten civilization”.

“We’ve always wanted RiME to captivate players’ imaginations, capturing that feeling of being a child and experiencing the wonders of a bedtime story for the first time,” said Raúl Rubio Munárriz, CEO & creative director of Tequila Works. “We’re so excited to find in Grey Box and Six Foot partners just as eager as we are to make that vision for such a personal project a reality.”

Additional details and platform availability will be announced early in 2017, ahead of a release later in the year.
