Today, Dyad was approved by the U.S. Fun and Diversion Administration to administer extreme doses of sensory stimulation.
It is absorbed directly into gamers' cerebral cortex via their optical, audial and touch receptors. The game was approved for use in all patients in North America who are in possession of a PS3 console and $14.99, and who are not adversely affected by excessive synaptic activity.
Research on Dyad began in 2008 in TRNT by http://gamasutra.com/view/news/34511/Interview_Dyads_Shawn_McGrath_On_Making_Games_Without_Art.php. After TRNT officials observed test subjects wholly absorbed in euphoric trances and reviewed testimonies of transcendental interactive experiences, TRNT halted development of Dyad and expelled Shawn.
Determined to finish his research and enlighten gamers worldwide, Shawn partnered with enigmatic composer David Kanaga and continued developing Dyad in secret. This collaboration prompted Dyad's incoming release for the purpose of stimulating gamers' sense of discovery and aid in the search for their own deific particles.
On July 17th, gamers are encouraged to access the PlayStation Network and drop into Dyad to experience a mind-bending harmonious synthesis of color and sound while hooking, grazing and lancing their way toward mastery of Dyad's 27 sensory-scrambling psychedelic campaign stages.
A Platinum Trophy will be awarded to those who are able to conquer an additional 26 tactical freakout Trophy levels, while a final 26 Remix levels will lead to new heights of interactive relaxation and is recommended for gamers at risk of health complications. The consumption of Dyad is aided by the inclusion of 1080p, 60fps visuals and wholly uncompressed audio.
Dyad thanks gamers for their participation.
Finally, from Dyad Creator Shawn McGrath on the PSN title:
Dyad is available today on PSN for $14.99 and $11.99 with a PlayStation Plus subscription. I’m really excited by all the positive reviews that Dyad’s receiving. It currently has a Metacritic score of 87.
It’s been a crazy amount of hard work to finish it and bring it to you on the PlayStation 3. It’s out today and I am extremely proud of it - thanks for all the love and support!
When Tim Rogers, director of Action Button Entertainment, first played Dyad he literally died. When he resurrected he demanded to be allowed to direct and co-star in his own Dyad advertisement with Vito Gesualdi. I hope you find their take on Dyad as hilarious as I do.
