Last year, the infographic world of Metrico was released exclusively for the PlayStation Vita and was part of the PlayStation Plus line-up at its launch. Metrico+ is the remake of Metrico, and will come out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC / Mac / Linux (on Steam) 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 to replace the worlds reliant on PS Vita exclusive features. Metrico+ centers 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 videogames 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.
