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. In close cooperation with Sony PlayStation, Metrico is released exclusively for the PlayStation Vita on the 5th of August (NA) and the 6th of August (EU) 2014. Dutch synthesizer composer 'Palmbomen' made the Metrico soundtrack.


Digital Dreams is a game development company from the Netherlands. We share an office building with other game developers like Vlambeer (Ridiculous Fishing, Nuclear Throne) Game Oven (Fingle, Bounden) and Abbey Games (Reus) in the Dutch Game Garden in the Netherlands. We have a 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 independent studio we strive to create elegant and meaningful experiences in the form of downloadable console games. With that said, we are very proud and excited to finally show the world of Metrico.
