RIME is one of those mysterious abstract puzzles from the first second the game begins. Waking up, alone on a desert island with nothing but the clothes on your back and the crabs at your feet, the story has yet to come into focus. Developed by Tequila Works and released in 2017, RIME faced mixed reviews from the critics and fans. Always preferring a first-hand look at a game, the Gigamax crew decided it was time to see for themselves.
The game is beautiful but the sea is absolutely the superior environment. The land seemed a bit stiff but the water physics and graphics really were in a league of their own when compared to the land. Even so, the cell shading was enjoyable and easy on the eyes when walking around the interesting world of RIME.
Gigs and Mack plan on working their way through RIME in between big game releases. This will be another playlist added to the Indie Spotlight Section! Don't forget to let the Gigamax crew know what indie games you want to see! Comment your favorite indie game at the bottom of the page so Gigs and Mack know what to play next.

Time To Celebrate
Let’s celebrate all the hard work that has gone into these works of art. AAA games are of course usually more graphically appealing with larger worlds utilizing their bigger budgets but at the same time, they feel more sterile.
When big corporations get their hands on the creative process of developing a video game, things start to change and often times suffer. Indie games avoid this kind of corporate input and instead, the teams create their own vision without the need to appease their bosses. This is what allows indie developers to truly push the envelope and develop the games they want to make. This kind of passion is worth celebrating and that’s exactly the goal of the Indie Weeks at Gigamax Games.
