Embark on a body-altering adventure inspired by Kafka’s classic story
Warsaw, Poland – February 27th, 2019 – Ovid Works is proud to reveal thatMetamorphosis, a first-person puzzle platformer about a man mysteriously transformed into a little bug, will launch in Fall 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
Inspired by Franz Kafka’s seminal short story The Metamorphosis, Ovid Works’ video game reimagines salesman Gregor Samsa as he turns into a tiny bug and embarks on a quest to save himself and his friend Joseph, who has been arrested for reasons unknown. Inconveniently, Joseph can’t recognize your new arthropodal body.
To rescue Joseph and uncover the truth behind your metamorphosis, you must go on a perilous journey through a strange world which, like yourself, has turned twisted and unfamiliar. What once seemed like mundane dwellings has become an expansive obstacle course. You’ll have to leap, climb, and chart your path by using your newfound abilities to navigate the dingy nooks and crannies that exist within the cracks of civilization. Use your wits to unravel the truth and return to the life you once knew.
