Rime : The four figurines activation
You will wake up on a tropical island, on the beach. Keep running ahead and jump into the water. Cover a small distance swimming and you will reach a small gorge – climb over the stones and their climb up the path. After a while you will reach a tall tower with an opening in the shape of a key.
After the cut scene you will regain control of your character. Your task is to find for construction stones inside which is where you find animal figurines. You will have to activate them using the main character’s voice. They are easy to find because there is a beam of light over each and every one of them. You will find the first one to the right of the location entrance. It is easily accessible.
Another figurine is to the left of the entrance. Unfortunately it is guarded by a boar. Go down the path and you will notice fruit trees. Pick one of the fruits and then go back to the boar. Throw the fruit to the animal and the boar will eat it. This will reveal access to the next figurine.
The third figurine is much better hidden. From the spot where you have picked the fruit, follow the path up and go towards a narrow passage between the rocks. Go there and jump down below onto the stones. Keep following the path to the chasm and grab onto the ledge. Shimmy to the right and climb up over the roots and grab onto the next ledge. Keep climbing up and head towards the stone structure. At the base of the structure, you will notice a person in a red cape. Do not worry about the figure because in the course of the game you will see that person many times. Go up the stairs until you reach the third figurine.
The fourth figurine is set among rocks out in the sea. Getting there is quite easy – you simply need to locate a beam of light, approach it and you will notice the figurine. Next to the figurine, you should also meet the person in the red cape. Jump into the water and swim up to the rocks – as soon as you are close, dive underwater, swim through the passage and resurface close to the island. Come up to the dry land and follow the stone steps up until you reach the last figurine.
You have just managed to activate all of the figurines. Go back to the mainland and go back to the huge pedestal at the base of the tower. Approach the statuettes and activate them using your voice. This will activate the huge statue – use your voice again and as a result, a fox-like animal will appear. He will remain your loyal companion for the rest of the game and will often hint you on where to go next. Apart from that you will see a tall stone column with stars – use them to enter the pier. At the end of the path you will find a statuette and closed door. Use your character’s voice to open the passage and unlock access to the next location.
