Even though you’ll spend most of your time alone while exploring, Rime’s world is teaming with life. There are crabs on the beach and all manner of fish underwater. Iridescent jellyfish form natural barriers to stop you swimming off into the ocean. Butterflies and warthogs convene around fruit trees. And then there’s the unsettling, inhuman presence you’ll encounter later on. But your primary company throughout the adventure is a fox that always manages to sit next to the path you should take next, and will bark after a while in case you’ve missed it. It’s an unobtrusive way of rescuing disoriented players that still allows for exploration on their own terms.
