Promising to “connect players unlike any other game before,” Dreii is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, PC/Mac, and iOS/Android in Fall 2015.
An award-winning puzzle game from developer Etter Studio and publisher Bitforge, a first concept study of Dreii was released in 2013 to strong acclaim, pushing the developers to take it further.
As Game Director Christian Etter explains:
Dreii is all about connecting people. Once opening the game you will be secretly connected with all other players, in real time and across the globe. In the concept version this was only possible on specific devices. Being truly about uniting everybody we sat down with the people from all popular game platforms and talked to them about letting their players connect with the players from the rival platforms.
It took a lot of persuasion, but now we’re extremely happy to release Dreii on all seven major game platforms and let everybody play with each other – across different cultural and technical setups.
Basically, if you own the game on PS4, you can “sit next to an Android user and battle logic and gravity united.”
Because Dreii aims to bring people together from all over the world, they settled on a handful of words for communication, which have been translated into 19 different languages: Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Rhaeto-Romanic, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Swiss-German, and Turkish.
Along with that universal communication tool, the full version of Dreii will add faster physics, brand new levels, and a new character specifically designed for this game.
