Metamorphosis Review

OverviewOverview

Metamorphosis is a surrealist adventure game about a man turned into a small insect. It's inspired by Franz Kafka books. From a first-person view you run, jump and climb around in unusual ways on your insect legs, meet bizarre characters and solve puzzles.

Along with the shift in scale, the game also plays tricks with you from early on, with things like paintings that shift when you get closer. As you progress you find a story about trying to make sense of your transformation into a bug and whether it's reversible, while also helping your friend who is stuck in a bureaucratic nightmare after being wrongly accused and arrested.
