With so many rehashed ideas in the video game industry, it’s nice when a developer thinks outside the box and creates something truly singular. One such developer is Digital Dreams and with their upcoming game, Metrico, they are set to deliver a game which is like none we’ve ever played before.
Metrico is a platforming game but that is about the only thing about it which can be considered “basic” about it. The game lets you play through levels inspired by infographics and charts. The world reacts to what the player does. This is something the devs are calling “Input Morphing,” things that you do will alter the world around you. “The challenge of the game lies within figuring out what each infographic conveys and being able to think outside of the box,” says Digital Dreams level designer Roy van del Mortel.
Metrico will be released exclusively for the PlayStation Vita on August 5. A free demo will be available at the time of release.
