News

.. if you happen to be near our office this week that is..

Metrico

Chances are that you’ve seen us go in overdrive as of late, and it so happens that all this hard work has improved the game greatly. At least.. that’s we what hope, and that’s where you come in. Literally!

 

Playtesting

This entire week you can come in at any time, while we’re here (which is pretty much always), pick up one of our PS Vita’s and play. It will more useful to us the longer you play, but every bit of feedback will help. We expect you to play at least 30 minutes though, up to several hours when you are up for it.

Don’t know where exactly in Utrecht to find us? Then best send roy@digitaldreamsgames.com a mail and he’ll help you out!

To everyone looking for internships

Some of our current internship positions will need a new face for the first half of 2014. That means we’re looking for a Concept & Motion Graphic Artist and possibly a 3D Character Animator who would like to work with us on Metrico. We will also consider hands-on Marketeers to spread the word on this PS Vita title.
Would you like to work on this very special game and pour your passion into a title that is already getting recognition from the likes of Kotaku, Polygon and GameInformer? 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.

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.

We are very glad to finally have Metrico at a point where we can start to show it to you! And so Digital Dreams is going on tour with this first playable. Metrico is currently in a Pre-Alpha stage, but it already reflects what the game is about, and we’d love to get your feedback while we keep working on it.

A new blog post on the official Playstation blog

 

Also, a blog post including new concept art has just gone live on the official Playstation blog. Roy tells a bit about the gameplay mechanics and it also shows concept art. You can check it out over HERE.

Gamescom & PAX Prime

From the 21st till the 25th of August we will be showing Metrico at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. Metrico at both Sony’s booth as well as at the Indigo Showcase in the business area. From the 30th of August till the 2nd of September we will be at PAX Prime, Seattle, WA. If you happen to be at either event make sure to look us up and give Metrico a try!

We’ve been thinking about changing the visual identity for Digital Dreams for quite some time now… and here it is! You probably saw the new logo already in the header.

We decided to go for something a little stronger. The new logo is like a small story, and we think it’s a good link to what we try to do as a company and gives a good link with the name. As of now, you’ll be finding the new logo  everywhere in our media.

We hope you like it!
