Ovid Works has revealed its first Dev Diary for Metamorphosis, a first-person puzzle platformer about a man mysteriously transformed into a little bug. In this Dev Diary, Ovid Works dives into their philosophy of making games that tell an interesting story, while still being fun to play.
Franz Kafka was almost the first game designer. He was putting into his stories those labyrinths. And all of these things are possible to recreate today as a world which the player can experience. And by experiencing such complicated, impossible worlds, he arrives at the same questions and the same reflections as the characters of Franz Kafka.
Metamorphosis places players on a perilous journey that’s as strange, twisted, and thoughtful as Kafka’s literary works. Set in 1920s Prague, players will have to leap, climb, and chart their path through a wide variety of settings from a micro perspective, including the human world, an underground world of insects, and a host of surreal environments.
Metamorphosis is in development for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
