So imagine there’s this castle. You’re running through it. You’re trying to survive. And finally you make it. But then the castle reboots. You have to go back to the beginning. Only this time you’re faced with clones. Clones of you. And they adopt the same movements you just made.
Welcome to ECHO.
It’s a game from Ultra Ultra and it’s described as a third person science fiction adventure. It’s reminding me awfully of the part how SUPERHOT was more of a puzzle game than a first-person shooter, even though the latter fit the technical definition of what you were doing.
As explained in the first trailer, the idea is basically to keep a couple of steps ahead from the off. It sounds really clever.
If you’re fortunate to be attending PAX West, you’ll see ECHO at the Indie Megabooth.
