One thing indie titles have excelled at is providing gamers with very new, and sometimes very weird, experiences… perhaps perfectly epitomized with something like Metamorphosis. Taking a page from Kafka, while the adventure seems to start out normally enough you’ll find your character quickly transformed into a bug, with you then needing to see through your relatively short journey from a far different perspective. Having played quite a number of titles from a small scale I’ll say that much of the time I don’t find it works terribly well but in this case I was actually pretty impressed with the relative scale of everything seeming to be consistent, the action platforming puzzles being pretty well-integrated, and the general experience being appropriately surreal if a bit silly in some ways. If you’re a platforming fan and would like to play a game that shakes things up quite a bit it should be well worth checking out.
