Over on the Playstation Blog a group of indie developers by the name of Digital Dreams has announced a new PS Vita game they’re calling Metrico.
According to the blog post, it’s going to be an “atmospheric puzzle game” that will center on, of all things, infographics.
The idea has been in our heads for a few years, and was born out of noticing how beautiful infographics can look as an art form. It was reinforced by seeing that infographics have become increasingly important in contemporary pop-culture. While they haven’t made their way to videogames yet, we think it’s a place where they can work exceptionally well. This is not just because of their pretty aesthetics as much as it is about actively changing data and how that can be visualized.
Now before you go shaking your head with confusion and scepticism the post also mentions that the last prototype of their game won the Indiepub propeller Award in 2012 in the category of “Best Design” and that’s what eventually got them a deal with Sony.
There’s no official release date set as of now, but there should be one soon. What did you guys think of the teaser trailer? Weird? Innovative? Both?
