Rime's new Gamescom trailer looks stunning

Puzzles are clever like a fox.

Deadlight developer Tequila Works' upcoming PS4-exclusive adventure Rime sure is pretty.

A new Gamescom trailer shows off its colourful world as you take the role of a lost boy who awakens on a mysterious island.

Who the boy is, why he's here, and what's inside that intriguing tower in the distance adorned with a giant keyhole are all mysteries for the player to uncover as they solve puzzles and unearth the lore behind this strange place.

Look closely at the trailer and you can even spot a puzzle solution in the background in the form of a fox. But what that means and why it's important is a matter for another time.
