Really cool game. The graphics are really nice, reminds me a lot of little nightmare.

Great game!! I wish it was longer but still amazing. I wanted to cry at the end.
It was a big please sure to play this game !
Wow. An amazing looking game. The art is fantastic. The sounds are spot on too. A great story and it all ran silky smooth. I really hope this is continued as it's such a fun game to play. A very well done to all involved. Superb... :)
Not a bad little game at all. Very like Inside and Little Nightmares as mentioned in the game description. Really enjoyed it but would have loved a couple more puzzles. Way to go, guys!
If this game is turned into something more than a demo, it will be amazing. Thank you for letting me play an amazing demo.
We're all glad you enjoyed it!
I really got some "little nightmares" vibes from this. Great little game, I can't wait to see what else you make. I hope it's a little longer next time :)
Was it a dream?
This game was beautiful. Plot twist hit me hard.
We played the game and WE LOVED IT! KEEP FIGHTING !
This is a cool game and definetly has potential to be an awesome full game!
Hold your breath!
Awesome game and unique game idea! The whole depiction of the incident using visual cues played out really well!
Glad you liked it, sorry that we might have scared you there at one point!
as a lover of little nightmares i got quite excited when i spotted this game and having now played it i must say i enjoyed it and look forward to your future games :). Subscribe for daily videos & let me know how i can make the channel better
I thought the game was really well done and would love to see more. I would suggest adding more audio to it as I thought it was a bit too muted at times. Looking forward to seeing updates if there is more to come! :)
Neat video you have there mate, glad you enjoyed it! Sorry that the puzzle mechanic was not that clear! As for the audio, it is always a fine balance between to much and to little when you're trying to create an empty/unsettling atmosphere. Cheers!
Looks like an INSIDE rip off. Is an INSIDE rip off/inspired by INSIDE. I love the graphics and scenery design though. amazing. Gameplay wasn't fun. Puzzles weren't fun. they were too easy, and yet the 'echo' easily got desynced with my character. (I don't know if that last part was done on purpose). Also, as amazing as the graphics and scenery were, overly detailed places would be shown in short instances of walking from one place to another, not giving too muich of a chance for it to be admired. Finally, the one eared sound effects in certain places were irritating. The sounds should've been more balanced out, even if they were coming from one direction.
Tl;dr: I loved how it looked, it had major flaws that wouldn't sell as a proper functioning game.
We're glad you liked parts of it, and especially the art as we consider it to be just as important as gameplay when it comes to telling a story through an interactive medium such as games. We'll make sure gameplay sits just as tight as art the next time.
This is a amazing game I’d love to see a full version of it well worth giving it a look.
ECHO | A Recurring Nightmare
There is no explanation, but I could see her mind. excellent graphics and atmosphere.👍
really enjoyed this game of yours!
Can't believe I missed this when it released! Really glad I came back and took a look at it because this is some of the best and most concise mechanical and environmental storytelling I've seen in a game. The whole story was conveyed without a single line of written or spoken word and still managed to be clear and impactful. While very short and lacking a little bit in gameplay, it's still something that needs be played.
We are also glad that you looked back up old games again! We did really but everything we had into telling a stsory through both the mechanic and environtment, we're glad you enjoyed it!
Very well done that left me aching for more. This project is gold and has potential if you continue to persue it further. Controls need refinement but overall it didn't hurt the expereince too much.
Thank you for your kind word. As of now, we're eagerly waiting for Swedish game awards and what it might hold for us!
Glad you liked it. I see you had trouble with the controls, the newer version has been updated with control-scheme including keyboard!
Thank you for a great little keep up the great work
Wonderful job! You guys did a great job paying homage to the overall feel of the games that inspired this and it was very well done from the mechanics to the models and other assets for something made in a month. The controls are a bit iffy, but can be overlooked. Be careful not to take so much inspiration from prominent games beyond the tone and setting that your work comes across as a copy instead of a project with your own voice. I think adding the mirror mechanic here went a long way towards setting Echo apart from being a Little Nightmares clone. Thumbs up and good luck with your next game!
Glad you liked the game, we are very happy with the mechanic and how it worked together with the environment and story. The ending is open, and you may interpret it as you want!
woah, i must say, great game, with great artistic skills
good job everyone, loved the game.
simple, clear and beautiful, and oh my god that ending.
truly great work, looking forward, for a lot more than just this, please keep making more better games.
i love, how it was not needed to actually use words to tell the story, brilliant work guys.
I am glad you enjoyed it! Hopefully we'll continue to make great games. Glad you appreciate the story and the way it is told.
i dont know how you made this but this was incredible!! 10/10 :D wish there was so much more to this!! :) really awesome job on making this! :D
Glad you liked our mechanic! Also neat that you mention Little Nightmares which was an inspiration to us :) It is unfortunatly not planned to be developed further however we are keeping our fingers cross for what the Swedish game awards might hold for us!
Such a good game! Amazing atmosphere and story!
Hello! It's always fun to see people interpreting the story, and that it varies between the gameplay videos, which was kind of the point, and part of the design of the game. Glad you enjoyed it, i really liked your video!
Echo is certainly a well crafted game and seems a nice homage to Little Nightmares by design. For something made in a month's time, the graphics and models were all pretty solid, with the textures and lighting working really well to keep a semi-realistic dreamworld in the player's eye. The mechanic of using a shadow in the water to help solve problems also worked pretty well, feeling rewarding once you figure things out. I'm normally not the best at puzzle games, but found this one enjoyable.Good job on this, devs.
Thank you, we did work together to make sure that both the gameplay and artstyle fit the narrative. Nice play through man! Have a great day.
really like the game the shadow idea was very cool and made me have to think more on how to get to the next room cant wait to see more of this game or more of you work!!
Hello! I really enjoyed the game and must say the way you architectured the story to be straight forward and yet very mistical untill the very end seems amazing! It is very difficult to keep a person attched to a game untill the very end, but, you did it so well I have nothing but praise for you! I honestly can't wait how you perfect this game, and wish you only the best in the future!
Thank you for your kind words, i am glad it held you until the end and that you enjoyed it!
I love this game, I really hope you develop it further, I feel as though it could be really cool
definitely would love to see more of this game, the camera is cool, the character movement is kinda good, just needs a bit more to be perfect , like edge grabbing while jumping and crouch maybe , it really reminds me of little nightmares alot because of the atmosphere, the camera and the character controller, also limbo/Inside puzzles , which is great to get compared to such titles , keep up the good work :)
Thank you so much for your feedback! It's pleasant to me as a developer to see that the games which you mention in your post are the same game which we looked at and said we wanted to try to tell a story in the same way, while also brining something new to the field! Thank you so much once again.
Cool game I really enjoyed it especially the shadow and its different from Little nightmare and Inside.
Got to play it too, and I liked it. I wanted more puzzles of course but I'm hopeful for an Echo 2. ;)
Hey everyone, I have to say that I had a play and managed to complete it in 7 minutes and I enjoyed it. I used the keyboard to navigate around and did find it just a tad little hard to control but it wasn't a real problem.
Graphically, it is so well polished it's great and I thought it was great how you could see the water underneath the floorboards. THe overall T&l was great.
Puzzle wise, I liked the idea of having a shadow character which you can control to help you with the various puzzles.
Overall, I was really impressed. Well done everyone.Regards
