Ultra-Indie Daily Dose: METAMAZE Asks You To Follow Your 3Dreams
I often dream of a four-dimensional existence. No, that’s not true. But how cool would it be if I did? Well, that’s the theme of today’s Daily Dose. METAMAZE is a short platformer about a 2D person who wishes theywere three.
Created by itch.io user Papercookies, METAMAZE begins as a low-stress 2D platformer. The character hops along, recounting their dream of a world not just of left and right, but of forward and backward as well. Eventually, you get to enter this 3D world, and for a brief moment, the game is a fascinating mix of 2D and 3D.
Of course, we should all be careful what we wish for. METAMAZE is not exactly a scary game in the traditional sense, but it certainly raises some existential dread. Matched with the interesting aesthetic of the 3D world and the surprisingly great sound design, METAMAZE hit a weird stressful center of my brain. But like, in a good way.
