Metrico announced by new studio Digital Dreams for PS Vita through Pub Fund

Metrico, an infographic-centric title that its developers call an "atmospheric puzzle action game," is coming to PlayStation Vita through Sony's Pub Fund program, new studio Digital Dreams announced today.

The three-person Dutch studio, which works in the same building as Awesomenauts developer Ronimo Games and Ridiculous Fishing developer Vlambeer, created "several unreleased prototypes" for Metrico, and the most recent one won the Best Design award at IndiePub's 2012 Independent Propeller Awards.

According to Roy van de Mertel, level designer at Digital Dreams, the concept for Metrico came from the idea that infographics are bordering on an art form in their own right, and that they've become more prevalent on the web and in pop culture lately.

"While they haven't made their way to [video games] yet, we think it's a place where they can work exceptionally well," said van de Mertel. "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's mechanics, said van de Mertel, are well suited to the unique hardware features of the PS Vita. The studio did not announce a release window, but posted a teaser trailer, which you can watch above.
