It’s no secret that I really like indie games, even if some out there don’t see the value in them. I love how unique they can be because indie developers don’t seem to be afraid to try new things with their games. Indie Developer, Digital Dreams is a good example with their upcoming PS Vita exclusive, Metrico. Metrico is a different kind of action platformer, one that is completely different from anything you may have seen before. Metrico features something called, “input morphing” in which the pieces of a level change depending on the actions a user takes. It’s all rather interesting, but is best explained through use of a video, which is exactly what we have for you here. Below is the new gameplay trailer for Metrico and it really shows off just how unique the game will be once it arrives.
Metrico will be available on PS Vita on August 5th, 2014.
July 16th, 2014 – Netherlands based developer, Digital Dreams, today released the very first gameplay footage for their PlayStation Vita exclusive action game Metrico. Metrico is set in a world filled with infographics and challenges the player through levels filled with bar charts, line diagrams and pie charts, each of which directly react to the player’s movements, actions and input. For example, one bar diagram might grow with each step a player takes to the left, while another might decline with every jump. Players must explore Metrico and carefully analyze every move to see how they affect the world, and what will help them advance. This game mechanic, called “Input Morphing” forces players to think about actions that they normally don’t consider in a video game. Metrico is a combination of exploration, skill, experimentation, but above all: thinking outside of the box.
Metrico will be available on PlayStation Network the 5th of August in the US and the 6th of August in Europe, exclusively for the PlayStation Vita. Dutch synthesizer composer “Palmbomen” will be featured for Metrico’s music soundtrack and sound effects.
