So all the hype related to Dyad over the last week has finally materialized today with the official release of the game on PSN for $14.99 with a 20% dicount for PS Plus members. You can read the official press release here and hang it up in your room if you like.
Dyad definitely has some high expectations but so far has managed to pull off some pretty amazing reviews. In fact, about a month ago, we named Dyad one of the top indie games to watch out for in the second half of 2012.
If you haven’t heard about Dyad, here is little preview of what you can expect.
Dyad takes the traditional elements of racing games, mixes in some LSD and gives you a completely whacked out experience.
On top of feeling like your on drugs, the gameplay is unique and thrives in a multiplayer environment. The whole idea is that the race course is not the only challenge, it’s the other players as well. In fact, the game encourages players to impede fellow racers because there are speed and energy bonuses that come from it.
There are 27 unique levels to beat that all feature an awesome audio visual experience. There are also several game modes, those for the hard core players and those for the casual. Overall, Dyad does have something to offer to everybody but if flashing lights, bright colors and funky music make you nauseous, you only have yourself to blame if you vomit all over your living room.
Before I tell everyone to buy the game, the one warning I must give players is that if you look at the screen for long periods of time, your brain will be stimulated even after the console is reluctantly shut off because your eyes are about to bubble out of your skull.
I’d love to keep writing about the game but my head is spinning just by looking at the website.
