Dutch indie developer Digital Dreams today announced that its infographic adventure METRICO+ will be release on the August 23rd, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam.
Originally released on the PS Vita to make use of the various input methods, Metrico was a unique game that really showed off what kind of creative things you could accomplish on Sony’s mighty portable. After many comments from fans wanting the game to come to other platforms, they’re finally going to get their wish. Along with the original game, METRICO+ will also feature new content that is 100% exclusive to this version. Not only that, METRICO+ will also feature an exclusive soundtrack by Dutch synthesizer composer Palmbomen.
Metrico is a new world. A living world of infographics, driven by your input. All the bar charts, line diagrams and pie charts react to what the player is doing. One bar diagram might grow for every step you walk to the left, while another could decline with every jump you make.
You will have to explore Metrico and carefully analyze your every move to see how it affects the world, and whether it will get you further. This mechanic is called “Input Morphing” and it makes you think about actions you normally don’t think about.
There are 6 unique worlds to explore with distinct challenges, mechanics, looks, sounds, and original music by Palmbomen. Metrico+ is a combination of exploration, skill, experimentation, but most of all: thinking outside of the box.
