A new PlayStation Vita game centering on infographics as a means for platforming and puzzling has been announced. Metrico, from new developer Digital Dreams, looks to create a mindset of its own as the studio notes:
“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. It was reinforced by seeing that infographics have become increasingly important in contemporary pop-culture.
“While they haven’t made their way to videogames yet, we think it’s a place where they can work exceptionally well. This is not just because of their pretty aesthetics as much as it is about actively changing data and how that can be visualized.”
Metrico has apparently been doing the rounds for a while – a prototype of the game won the Indiepub Propeller Award 2012 for “Best Design”. It now appears Digital Dreams will be work with Sony thanks to the Pub Fund program to bring the game to Vita.
