It would be easy for Rime to stand purely on the strength of its art. Gorgeous splashes of water color beckoning you into Rime's charming island world and the trove of secrets concealed therein. But Rime isn’t just about its beauty. Scattered across the game's slice of island paradise are a number of thoughtful, elegantly designed puzzles and slivers of environmental storytelling that keep pulling you deeper even after that initial sense of wonder begins to fade. Rime is a game whose playfulness, from the guardian fox that accompanies you to the tug of gentle wind on your bright red half cape, belies a depth of engrossing mystery that persist all the way until its final moments.
