Deadlight dev announces gorgeous cel-shaded open-world adventure Rime

That statue looks familiar...  

Deadlight developer Tequila Works is making a massive transition from its gritty, 2D zombie platformer to the bright, cel-shaded open-world adventure Rime.

Based on its Gamescom debut trailer below, Rime definitely gives off a Ni No Kuni vibe with some of Ico's lonely ruins and shadowy foes tossed into the mix. Plus your character's red cape, tunic and headband bring to mind Fumito Ueda's beloved horned lead.

Sadly, that's bout all we know of this pretty project at the moment, but it seems like one to keep an eye on.
