All in! Games has announced that Metamorphosis is now available on PC and consoles. The narrative adventure inspired by Kafka’s curious imagination is now available on PC (Steam and GOG), Nintendo Switch, Xbox One (all with a 10% discount until August 19), and on PlayStation 4.
Metamorphosis’ unique point of view, resulting from the player being the size of a bug required a new approach to level-building and player guidance, as well as locomotion. As the Ovid Team explains:
“We absolutely wanted to emphasise the feeling of being a bug. A lot of things were tried unsuccessfully. We finally managed to set the scale and guidance in a way that expressed the ‘buggy’ feeling of the movement. We are very proud of the locomotion we ended up with. But what we are most proud of is the consistency of the art, gameplay, and story that we maintained. Such a unique combination of these elements is found nowhere else.”
Metamorphosis lets players experience:
- A bug’s perspective in first person – see the world in a whole new way
- Challenging environmental puzzles – do parkour, climb walls, search for clues, and overcome obstacles
- Unique movement mechanics – make full use of your tiny body and sticky limbs
- A story inspired by Kafka’s imagination – meet eccentric characters in a hand-painted world as you journey through surrealist landscapes towards The Tower
