Niche Spotlight – Metamorphosis


Today’s Niche Spotlight is Metamorphosis, a first-person adventure game set in a Kafkaesque world by Ovid Works and All in! Games.

You play as Gregor, a man that has mysteriously been turned into a tiny insect. At the same time, your friend Joseph has been arrested for unknown reasons. Use your newfound abilities as a bug to explore surreal environments, rescue Joseph, and figure out the truth behind your bizarre transformation.

You can find a launch trailer below.

Metamorphosis is available on Windows PC (via GOG, and Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:

A surreal adventure inspired by the curious imagination of Franz Kafka

You wake up one morning to find that you are rather inconveniently transforming into a tiny bug, while your friend Joseph is being arrested for reasons unknown.

To save him and to find the answers you seek, you must embark on a journey through a world which, like yourself, has become twisted and unfamiliar.

What once seemed like mundane dwellings have become an expansive obstacle course, and now you’ll have to chart your path through the dingy nooks and crannies that exist within the cracks of civilization.

Use your wits to unravel the truth, and regain the life you once knew.

  • A bug’s perspective in first person – experience the world in a whole new way
  • Challenging environmental puzzles – parkour, wall climb, search for clues, and overcome obstacles
  • Unique movement mechanics – make full use of your tiny body and sticky limbs
  • A story inspired by Kafka’s imagination – meet eccentric characters in a hand-painted world, as you journey through surrealist landscapes towards The Tower
