Metrico on PS Vita: Infographics and Input Morphing Detailed

50°
34w 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.

In Metrico the player needs to traverse the game world, which is built from all sorts of infographics, like bar diagrams, pie charts, line graphs, etc. These infographics constantly change based on your actions,...

To quote: Greetings, PlayStation-ers! My name is Colin Moriarty, IGN's Senior Editor.

If you're a PlayStation fanatic - and since you're on the PlayStation.Blog, you probably are - you may recognize me as the man in charge of IGN's PS4, PS3, and PS Vita coverage. You may also know me as one-third of Podcast Beyond.

Today, I write my inaugural PlayStation.Blog post to tell you about something I'm very excited for. See, I'm pretty darn keen on The Last of Us... so much so, in fact, that I got sucked in for about 40 hours worth of multiplayer madness after the game launched. And that got me thinking: who's responsible for The Last of Us' most understated feature, its online suite?

Naturally, I found an answer. Naughty Dog's David Ballard was kind enough to come to IGN's San Francisco headquarters to record a series of videos with me, one for each map in the multiplayer suite.

As an integral part of the creation of...

To quote: Greetings! As anticipation for this year's PS4 launch bubbles into a froth of frenzied excitement, we know a few of you will be asking stuff like 'but just how big is the damn thing? Will it fit snugly under my television? Can I stand it up? How many USB ports does it have?'
