Digital Dreams http://www.digitaldreamsgames.com An unexpected game development studio Tue, 04 Oct 2016 09:29:12 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Metrico+ OUT NOW on PlayStation 4 and Steam http://www.digitaldreamsgames.com/metrico-out-now-on-playstation-4-and-steam/ http://www.digitaldreamsgames.com/metrico-out-now-on-playstation-4-and-steam/#respond Tue, 23 Aug 2016 10:27:22 +0000 http://www.digitaldreamsgames.com/?p=1621

When we started Digital Dreams we were just 3 guys making stuff that we loved. We’re incredibly grateful that Sony picked us up a while back. Back then we didn’t even know yet what the world of Metrico would look like and how it would work. All we had was this scruffy prototype, but Sony had faith in us and the game, and helped making it into an actual game that is coming out today on PlayStation 4 and Steam.

Watch the Metrico+ release trailer:

Working with PlayStation

Like so many of you, we grew up with PlayStation. We’ve had so many fantastic games and experiences that we will never forget: games like Rez, Metal Gear Solid, Journey or Shadow of the Colossus are just a few of a very long list of games that made a big impression on us. It’s what inspired us to start a company with one goal in mind: make original game experiences no one ever experienced before. When looking back, now that our studio has released our first game on PlayStation 4, we can honestly say this is a dream coming true.

Our personal journeys

While working on Metrico+, we obviously experienced a lot personally as well. Lots of things changed for us in the meantime: Relationships came and went, we had to move offices and homes and we all grew a little older and wiser.

The company changed as well. We worked with lots of different people to make Metrico+ possible. Most moved out when their work was finished, some stayed, but all had one thing in common: We all became close friends. As game developers, particularly on lengthy projects such as Metrico+, all of these personal endeavours become part of the experience you’re creating. It’s this weird symbiosiss between your personal and professional lives that is difficult to put into words. It’s what makes it so difficult but also satisfying to release a game.

Enjoy Metrico+!

Without sounding too cheesy, we can honestly say the players are the reason why we can make these original games.
We can’t wait to show you the next world that we’re creating. But for now, we really hope you enjoy the quirky world that is Metrico+. Please let us know what you think!

We’re announcing METRICO+, coming to PS4, Xbox One, and Steam! http://www.digitaldreamsgames.com/metrico-plus-announced-for-ps4-xbox-one-and-steam/ http://www.digitaldreamsgames.com/metrico-plus-announced-for-ps4-xbox-one-and-steam/#comments Wed, 15 Jul 2015 12:02:58 +0000 http://www.digitaldreamsgames.com/?p=1305

Metrico+ Announced!

We’re extremely excited to announce METRICO+! Metrico+ is the remake of Metrico, and will come out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC / Mac / Linux (on Steam).

We are very happy with how Metrico got received by players and press when it came out for the PlayStation Vita. Metrico was included in the PlayStation+ line-up at launch, so lots of people played it when it came out on the PlayStation Vita. The PlayStation Vita is a fantastic platform with a great audience, but we would love more people to enjoy the world we created. Players thought the same: Since Metrico’s release for the PlayStation Vita, we’ve had lots of people without a PlayStation Vita asking us if they could also get an opportunity to play the game. We heard all of you and are thrilled that the Metrico experience will make it’s way to the big screen!

Metrico+ features lots of new content and the visuals have been completely revamped for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Instead of the worlds that use Vita hardware features, there are completely new unique worlds to explore with new mechanics and puzzles for the player to solve. There are also other interesting changes and additions that we’ll announce at another time.

Gamescom

The game will be shown for the first time in August this year at Gamescom in the Indie Arena Booth on the consumer show floor.

When is it out?

Just a half year from now, in Q1 2016! Keep up to date on the latest news or contests to win codes by following our Facebook and Twitter pages!

Some of our current internship positions will need a new face for the first half of 2014.

We will also consider hands-on Marketeers to spread the word on this PS Vita title.

If you want to add your 2 cents to our a small, informal yet professional team, then by all means apply! You can find more info on this at our job page.

The quicker you contact us, the better! We will most likely make our final decision halfway December.

Metrico on tour: Fantastic Arcade, Indigo & IndieCade are up next! http://www.digitaldreamsgames.com/metrico-on-tour-fantastic-arcade-indigo-indiecade-are-up-next/ http://www.digitaldreamsgames.com/metrico-on-tour-fantastic-arcade-indigo-indiecade-are-up-next/#respond Mon, 16 Sep 2013 13:07:00 +0000 http://www.digitaldreamsgames.com/?p=1162 After the response and feedback from Gamescom and PAX, we are ready to show Metrico at more events! We are still in a Pre-Alpha stage, so don’t consider that which you will see to be final, but it should be a good introduction to the game.

 

Fantastic Arcade

In Austin, Texas from September 19-22 you will be able to find the game at Sony’s booth. While there is a great line-up including Wasteland Kings, Towerfall, Kentucky Route Zero and The Stanley Parable, please take some time to play Metrico, if you haven’t already.

Indigo

On September the 28th Metrico will be playable in our own hometown, Utrecht, for the first time here in the Netherlands. Come see us and other notable games from Dutch developers and students.

IndieCade

In LA, California Metrico will be once more at Sony’s booth during IndieCade between 4-6 October. While there, we also recommend trying out Spin the bottle, Super Time Force and That Dragon, Cancer, assuming you have played most of the other, slightly older, games by then.

UPDATE – Eurogamer Expo, Virgin Media Game Space

A very last minute surprise! Metrico will also be playable at the Virgin Media Game Space during the Eurogamer Expo from September 26 to 29. Find us along Doom Piano, Lovers in a Dangerous Space and Lone Survivor.

Please let us know what you thought through Facebook or Twitter! We welcome all your feedback.
