To celebrate the upcoming launch, Dutch developer Digital Dreams has released a brand new trailer for Metrico+. “The response we got from both the many players and press on the original game for PlayStation Vita was extremely positive, and one of the most heard comments was that people wanted to play the game on platforms other than the Vita as well”, said Digital Dreams Level Designer Roy van de Mortel. “With Metrico+, we can now finally give players the opportunity to experience the world of Metrico on all major platforms, along with new content that is 100% exclusive to this version. Both old and new players are sure to find something to love in this completely redesigned version of Metrico, whether it’s the mechanics, puzzles, visuals or story. “We’re really excited about Metrico making the transition to bigger screens and can’t wait to share the look and feel of the Metrico+ experience with an entirely new audience on Steam and consoles.”
Exclusive soundtrack by Palmbomen can only be listened to by playing Metrico+
Dutch synthesizer composer Palmbomen wrote original music specifically for each world in Metrico+. The music is written to completely respond to the way you play the game, and therefore the only way you can listen to his score. There will not be an album released separately.
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.
Metrico+ will be available on the 23rd of August on the PlayStation Store, the Xbox One Store and Steam for $13,99 / €13,99.
