Swiss developer Etter Studio, in collaboration with publisher Bitforge, today announced that Dreii, the award-winning physics conundrum, launches on PS Vita and PS4 in North America and Europe on March 9, 2016.
Dreii is a puzzling game that connects players in real-time across the world to help each other with logic and skill in a battle against gravity.
“We can’t wait to see PlayStation players on console and handheld, working collectively to solve Dreii’s geometric physics puzzles”, said Game Designer Christian Etter. “Dreii is founded on one thing – connecting players in real-time across the world to help one another in a battle against gravity”.
In Dreii your mission is simple: build a tower to a specified point and hold it there. Sounds too easy? Like anything in life, things get in the way of reaching your goals, including gravity, explosives, magnetism, thunderstorms and incompetent colleagues. Featuring cross-platform play on PlayStation devices, Dreii allows friends to play on PS Vita and PS4 together. The PlayStation version also features Cross-Buy, so owners of both PS Vita and PS4 can purchase the game once, but download it on both systems!
What’s more, Dreii is not only cross-platform but cross-cultural with a universal communication tool that allows players to speak to others, wherever they are in the world with simple words that get translated into 19 different languages. Each player also has his or her very own instrument, as avatars work together to form Dreii’s unique universal orchestra, creating a unique musical landscape, inspired by archaic instruments and ancient melodies.
Launched in 2013, the concept study of Drei won the Swiss Game Award (2013), European Design Award (2014) and was a finalist at the IGF (2014), IndieCade (2014) and SXSW (2014). In 2015 PewDiePie, the most followed YouTuber of all times, titled it “coolest puzzle game ever”.
Dreii will translate player’s communication instantly across 19 languages: Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Rhaeto-Romanic, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Swiss-German and Turkish. Dreii will be available on PSN for PS Vita and PS4 for £9.49, €11.99 and $11.99.
