Zurich, Switzerland — February 2nd, 2016 — Swiss developer Etter Studio, in collaboration with publisher Bitforge, today released Dreii, the award-winning physics conundrum, on Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux, the AppStore for iOS and Google Play Store for Android. Dreii is a puzzling game that connects players in real-time across the world to help each other with logic and skill in a battle against gravity.
“We can’t wait to see desktop, mobile and tablet players, working collectively to solve Dreii’s geometric physics puzzles. Dreii is founded on one thing – connecting players in real-time across the world to help one another in a battle against gravity, the launch is the first phase of the Dreii rollout and we are excited to be releasing Dreii on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Wii U soon”. – Game Designer Christian Etter.
In Dreii your mission is simple: build a tower to a specified point and hold it there. Sounds too easy? Like anything in life, things get in the way of reaching your goals, including gravity, explosives, magnetism, thunderstorms and incompetent colleagues. Featuring true cross-platform play, Dreii allows friends to play on different desktop and mobile devices to unite and work together in their battle with blocks.
What’s more, Dreii is not only cross-platform but cross-cultural with a universal communication tool that allows players to speak to others, wherever they are in the world with simple words that get translated into 19 different languages. Each player also has his or her very own instrument, as avatars work together to form Dreii’s unique universal orchestra, creating a unique musical landscape, inspired by archaic instruments and ancient melodies.
Launched in 2013, the concept study of Drei won the Swiss Game Award (2013), European Design Award (2014) and was a finalist at the IGF (2014), IndieCade (2014) and SXSW (2014). In 2015PewDiePie, the most followed YouTuber of all times, titled it “coolest puzzle game ever”.
Dreii will translate player’s communication instantly across 19 languages: Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Rhaeto-Romanic, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Swiss-German and Turkish. Dreii is available on Steam for PC, Mac and Linux for £8.99, €11.99, $11.99 and through the App Store for iOS and Google Play Store for Android for £2.99, €3.99, $3.99. Dreii will then launch on the PSN Store for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in February and on the eShop for Wii U in Spring 2016.
