In Rime, a boy washes up on a remote island and wanders around. You're guided through this new land by a foxthink a dog, but less goodwho yaps while signposting where to go next. You climb things, push stuff around, line up shapes and even control light to activate switches that open the way. It's rather Indie Game: The Game from theretwee imagery, gentle exploration, nice music, until some more thematically interesting stuff emerges later in the story.
I typically enjoy all of those things and thought I'd like Rime too, but I've bounced off of it a bit. As a puzzle platformer, it's a bit too easy going, rarely offering anything too taxing to figure out. I was never dazzled by the answer to a puzzle, though two or three are complex or large scale enough that you'll feel satisfied by resolving them.
