'City of Metronome' (PS3/X360/PC) Put On Hold

by Rainier on April 26, 2007 @ 3:22 a.m. PDT

Metronome is a third-person adventure game where sound is your weapon. Explore the city of Metronome in search of proof of the Corporation's secret agenda, while listening for sounds to record, and use them to fight enemies, solve problems and confuse citizens. Team Tarsier revealed that it has put Metronome on ice, and moved on to other projects for the time being.

When the veil of conformity is lifted you begin to question the world around you. Who and what are you, in this city of continuous labour? What is the actual purpose of the Metrognomes? And are the scouts really there to help the citizens as the Corporation claims...?

Together with the mysterious girl New you set out to uncover her hidden past. A journey that will lead you through several exceptional locations, trying to reveal the truth about the mysterious Corporation and find the purpose of the city itself...

Venture into the city of Metronome, a sprawling mass of haphazardly built houses and huge steam engines where the outlandish inhabitants are carrying out their chores day and night. A city where the life of every citizen is dictated by the Corporation, a single bureaucratic entity that owns all the land, the entire infrastructure and all the industries.

Explore winding alleys, skewed rooftops and crowded apartment buildings as you search for proof of the Corporations secret agenda, all while listening for sounds to record. Sounds that can be used for a variety of tasks: fight enemies with loud and destructive sounds, solve problems and confuse citizens by clever usage of the right sound at the right moment, use seductive and melodious sounds to change the mood and behaviour of listeners.

Can't find the specific sound you need? Create it yourself! Shove a bookcase down some stairs, throw a rock through a window or simply annoy someone enough to make them shout at you and then record the result.
