Metrico+ is the remake of Metrico, and will come out on Xbox One and other formats in the first quarter of 2016. Like its predecessor, Metrico+ features unique worlds to explore with distinct challenges, mechanics, looks and sounds; however new worlds and features have been added. Metrico+ centres around infographics. It’s an atmospheric puzzle action game with a mindset of its own.
The idea was born a few years ago, out of admiration for the beauty of infographics 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 video games yet, Digital Dreams feels it’s a place where they can work exceptionally well. This is not just because of their pretty aesthetics as much as it is that games are about interaction with data visualization.
There are currently no Trailers or Video’s of Metrico+, but should this change I will update and add them for everyone to see, it will be shown at Gamescom in August on the Indie Game Floor, so keep a look out. What is everyone’s thoughts then? I have never played the original, but it certainly does look unique and a very interesting concept for a game, cannot wait for more to be shown in the coming months and waiting for the release next year.
