16w ago - Digital Dreams Level Designer Roy van de Mortel shared some concept art and details today on both infographics and input morphing in Metrico on PS Vita below.
To quote: It has been a while since we announced Metrico, so we are very excited to finally be able to share some more insights into the development and current state of Metrico.
We have been working very hard the last couple of months to make sure we now have a playable version, so people can experience what Metrico is about for the first time.
We announced Metrico at GDC San Francisco back in March with an announcement teaser, which was well received. But we knew that the next time we showed something to the press and you guys, we obviously would have to show more than the abstract video, aimed at introducing the game.
Metrico is a mysterious world, so we decided to keep it a bit vague with the teaser. We have a lot more to show since last March, so we'd like to take a moment and explain what type of a game Metrico is.

36w ago - Sony Digital Dreams Level Designer Roy van de Mortel has announced Metrico today, a new PS Vita Pub Fund exclusive!
Below are the details, to quote: Dear readers, we are Roy, Geert and Thijmen, soon to be known as Digital Dreams.
As you've probably never heard of us, a short introduction might be in order. We're from the Netherlands and we share a building with other game developers like Ronimo (Awesomenauts) and Vlambeer (Super Crate Box). We have a short history in AAA development but quickly found out that we wanted to start our own company and work on our own projects.
As a small indie company we strive to create elegant and meaningful experiences in the form of downloadable console games. With that said, we are very proud and super excited to finally announce Metrico, a unique PS Vita exclusive!
Metrico centers around infographics, as you might have noticed from the teaser above. It's an atmospheric puzzle action game that strives to create a unique mindset of its own. 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.
