Digital Dreams has revealed the latest PlayStation Vita exclusive, Metrico, during Sony’s Indie Arcade event at GDC San Francisco. Metrico will be available strictly for download via the PlayStation Network. This is the first Sony Pub Fund title to be named exclusively for Vita. Metrico is an interesting puzzle action game that takes the infographics we all hated in elementary school and turns them into beautiful art. An early prototype of the game won Best Design 2012 in the IndiePub Propeller Award.

Metrico centers around infographics. It’s an atmospheric puzzle action game that strives to create a unique mindset of its own. The idea was born a few years ago 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, 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 about actively changing data and how that can be visualized.
