RIME Developer Tequila Works Says Not All Indies Have a Place at Retail

Although Tequila Works’ RIME is hitting store shelves alongside a digital release, the studio’s producer Miguel Paniagua doesn’t think that all indies have a place in physical stores. During an interview with MCV, Paniagua was of the view that the funds required for a disc release are better spent improving the overall quality of a game. He went on to say that digital publishing and self-publishing enables studios to minimize costs and so they’re “probably better on their own.” In RIME‘s case, it was its publishers (Grey Box, Six Foot) that decided on a retail release because the game is “not like a typical indie project.” We announced it in 2013, we had a trailer in 2014 that was also very popular, so the name of Rime, I think [publisher Grey Box] thought it was worth it to take on the stores. I don’t know if other indie games will work the same way, though. Interestingly, Tequila Works itself is helping to bring Cavalier Game Studios’ The Sexy Brutale to retail but according to the studio’s founder Charles Griffiths, the disc release (PlayStation 4 only) came as a result of Tequila’s relationship with a distributor. He personally believes that more can READ FULL STORY…

Rime Releases on May 26 for PS4, Xbox One & PC

[embedded content] Tequila Works announced today that Rime is releasing on May 26 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, priced at $29.99 USD/€34.99/£29.99 through both retail and digital stores. The Nintendo Switch version will arrive “shortly afterward,” priced at $39.99 USD/€44.99/£39.99. Re-revealed earlier this year as a multi-platform title, Tequila Works says their goal with Rime “was not only to create an enchanting and engaging adventure, but to craft a game where you see the world through the eyes of a child. We decided to move in this direction because there’s something so universal about it; after all, we were all children at some point.” Here’s what to expect from Rime: Rime is a single-player puzzle adventure game about discovery, experienced through the eyes of a young boy who awakens on a mysterious island after shipwrecking off its coast. Players must navigate the island’s secrets by making use of light, sound, perspective and even time. Inspired by the rugged, sunbaked terrain of the Mediterranean coast, Rime paints its breathtaking world with a fusion of vibrant colours and moving musical undertones to set the stage for the deeply personal journey that awaits within. Addressing the higher price tag of the Switch version, Tequila Works said, READ FULL…

Tequila Works Gives an Overview of Rime’s PS4 Pro Enhancements, Says It Wants to Balance It Out

Rime developer Tequila Works has said that it’s targeting a frame-rate and resolution of 30fps/1080p on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and although the game will offer a higher frame-rate on the PS4 Pro, the studio wanted to achieve a balance between “having more frame rate than in a normal PS4 but adding some visual improvements that helped Rime to look even better.” Speaking to Wccftech, Lead Progammer Carlos Vázquez said that the increase in frame-rate for PS4 Pro will vary between 5-10fps “depending on the game’s area.” Additionally, he gave a quick rundown of improvements as follows: –          Much better quality of the shadows.–          Temporal antialiasing has better quality, obtaining more definition and quality in the AA filter.–          The LODs’ distance has been tweaked to increase the visual quality of fauna and flora during the time they are rendered.–          More definition in the texture filter.–          The VFX, shaders, materials and translucency has better quality too so we can have, for example, more realistic metals, better screen space reflections and better detail level in general. As for HDR, Vázquez says that the support Rime offers is the default one that comes with Unreal Engine, and the developer didn’t feel READ FULL STORY…

Tequila Works Discusses Rime’s Rocky Development

Former PlayStation exclusive Rime has been the subject of many rumors since it was first announced in 2013. Now that the game is finally set to release this May for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC, developer Tequila Works is starting to open up about the game’s development cycle. While they admit that there were times they thought the project would have to be canceled at certain points, it was never due to any funding issues. “There were a lot of moments where we thought that the game wasn’t going to be released,” said the game’s creative director Raul Rubio to IGN. ” In fact, I was completely sure of that once. Fortunately, that didn’t happen.” Rubio told the outlet that when the game was in trouble it was always due to technical issues the team was trying to overcome, and that when the most recent cancellation rumors were spreading the studio was in the process of moving to a larger office. Despite the rocky development cycle (more of which is detailed over at IGN’s excellent interview), Rubio does believe that Rime is a better game for it. “We are now using Unreal Engine 4,” said the director. “That engine has evolved, READ…
