Game Type: Introduction “For your information: ‘FYI’ is the first game to use infographics as an art style and the ‘input morphing’ gameplay mechanic.” Aiming for the quality of Limbo and the impact of Braid, FYI is a game which is unique and beautiful in every ways the big hits on XBLA / PSN / Steam are. Because of the uniqueness of the gameplay and aesthetics a frame of reference was missing. That is why the development team has created multiple prototypes to flesh out the design. Digital Dreams worked on these prototypes in between projects and are now at a point that they know what the final design can look like. Digital Dreams is now looking for a publisher to fund the project to reach it’s full potential and make it the next big hit. “The unique gameplay accompanied by the increasingly popular infographics make FYI a game to be remembered.” Summary • PSN / XBLA / Steam downloadable, possibly other platforms as well • Unique high definition infographic art style • Unique “input morphing” mechanic, which brings a truly new game experience • A simple yet original story about a unique world • Kinect / PS Vita support offers additional unique puzzle gameplay Game The player needs to traverse the game world, which is built from bar diagrams and pie charts. These constantly change based on your actions and movements, we call this ‘Input Morphing’. One bar shoots up in the sky when you fire a bullet, while another shrinks with every step you move. The player has to watch his/her every move to make it to the end of the level, because this move may cause the exit to become unreachable. FYI is a 2D intelligent puzzle-platformer that creates a mindset of its own. The player will have to analyze and experiment with the world presented to him, while both his patience and reflexes are tested. Every action can cause a reaction, every step forward could set you back. Setting FYI takes place in the Land of Digits. A world where the soil consists of bar diagrams and other infographics and pie charts make up the nature. Your name is The 1. A not so unique individual in a land where higher numbers have the power. But as you progress, you find out there is a community living below the surface as well; people with letters. The letters are fed up with the digits’ desire for power and decide to rebel against the numbers. Will you help the letters? Will you level up, become a higher number and gain more power? But is having a higher number always better? Or will it cause a change you cannot undo?
