Out of their love for music and visual storytelling, Wan Hazmer, Lead Game Designer of Final Fantasy XV, and Daim Dziauddin, Concept Artist of Street Fighter V set up a new game company in Malaysia called Metronomik back in December 2017.

We believe that music is under-utilized in game design. Everyone loves music, but not everyone can be a musician. Our vision is to bring the harmony of music and video games to the masses, without turning them into a rhythm game. We want to prove this concept with our first PS4 & PC game, No Straight Roads.

<Who Am I: The Tale of Dorothy> is a challenging simulation game in which you will become a counsellor and talk to 4 personalities once per week in Dorothy’s dream, who suffers from dissociative identity disorder due to her trauma. Your goal is to max out the integrity level of the split personalities(Alice, Gretel and Cindy) and integrate them into Dorothy. The personalities are very sensitive to your questions and answers, and your choices made in counselling sessions will determine the destiny of Dorothy, whether successfully treated or devoured by the split personalities.
