There are complicated concepts and there are basic concepts in video games, and the arm space for enjoyment isn’t limited to the numbers of words required to describe how to play them. Shawn McGrath has been working on the new PSN game, Dyad, for several years now. In terms of complexity, Dyad is neither here nor there, but it sure is a trip to somewhere else.
With its pulsing palette of neon streaks of light and adaptive soft-techno soundtrack, Shawn McGrath's Dyad looks a little out-of-place when compared to other Sony offerings such as Starhawk or Resistance: Burning Skies. But its unique flavour and psychedelic presentation are exactly what makes it stand out from the crowd.
