Graph-based video game

Aug 27, 2014

Last year, Metrico, an infographic-based puzzle game for the PlayStation Vita, was announced for future release. It’s out now.

I must’ve been in a pissy mood from too many spam-fographics in my suggestions inbox last year, because I brushed this game off for whateversville (and seemed upset about it). Metrico totally seems like a game I would like though. You essentially navigate a 3-D world of graphs, and the terrain changes based on your own actions and button pushes. Just don’t use the game design as an idea bucket for your next slide deck. [via Wired]
