Play with the numbers this spring with the PS Vita's Metrico

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Metrico, the unusual "infographic platformer" coming from Digital Dreams, is close to completion and will arrive on PS Vita in the spring, according to a new trailer the studio put out this morning.

Metrico will feature six "worlds," that the player navigates, interacting with the visual information to solve the platforming challenges.

"When we started out, we thought Metrico was mainly about infographics and finding out what to give as an input to solve puzzles," Roy van de Mortel, a designer with Digital Dreams, said this morning on PlayStation Blog. "But when we played around with PS Vita and all of its hardware features, it became clear that the game is not just about solving puzzles."

Polygon got a look at Metrico back at Gamescom; check out this video to learn more about the game's concept and how it plays.
