Metamorphosis

First-person puzzle platformer Metamorphosis will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam on August 12, publisher All In! Games and developer Ovid Works announced. A demo will be available for PC via Steam starting today.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

About

A surreal adventure inspired by the curious imagination of Franz Kafka.

You wake up one morning to find that you are rather inconveniently transforming into a tiny bug, while your friend Joseph is being arrested for reasons unknown.

To save him and to find the answers you seek, you must embark on a journey through a world which, like yourself, has become twisted and unfamiliar.

What once seemed like mundane dwellings have become an expansive obstacle course, and now you’ll have to chart your path through the dingy nooks and crannies that exist within the cracks of civilization.

Use your wits to unravel the truth, and regain the life you once knew.

Key Features

  • A Bug’s Perspective in First-Person – Experience the world in a whole new way.
  • Challenging Environmental Puzzles – Parkour, wall climb, 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.
